We hope you’re staying cool over the last month of hot and humid temperatures. One thing that is always cool: the summer Bulletin, chalk full of reports from your fellow members on the great committee work and programs that have been going on. Continue reading From the Editors→
Welcome to the Fall issue of the CALL Bulletin with a special feature exploring how many of the CALL Institutional libraries have handled the pandemic. You will hear from academic, law firm, and government libraries on the different pitfalls they have faced and how they have adapted to continue providing services to their patrons.
As always we have all of your favorite columns: President Lindsey Carpino highlights the ongoing work of CALL committees and members; we official meet Ariel Scotese as a new member of CALL; summaries of the September and November CALL Business meetings and the Executive Board Meeting minutes for your review. We also have a new section on member news highlighting the accomplishments of our members, and introduce the Executive Board candidates for 2021-2022. Enjoy and have a wonderful holiday season!
Welcome to the Year-in-Review issue of the Bulletin. Inside you will find all of the reports from every committee in CALL, so be sure to check in on what each committee achieved this last year. Speaking of achievement, please take a minute to read up on all of our wonderful CALL award winners, and be sure to send your congratulations if you have not. But this issue is not all looking back. New President Lindsey Carpino provides her first message to the CALL members, and we, the CALL Bulletin committee, introduce ourselves for the upcoming year. Please be sure to send any article ideas to anyone on the committee. Take care, and all the best!
This issue has been quite a doozy to get off the ground. Like everyone else, it seems that COVID 19 has brought many extracurricular activities to a screeching halt while we navigate our new realities. But thanks to the hard work of our fellow CALL Members and the CALL Bulletin staff we happily present the much delayed Spring issue of the Bulletin (Issue 255)!
In this issue we bid farewell to Jessie LeMar as she writes her last message as President of CALL. Debbie Ginsberg gives advice for staying data safe in a time where we are all working from home. Carrie Port summarizes the Meting Committee’s Zoom happy hours, and invites you to join one in August. We send a preliminary congratulations to the 2020 CALL Award winners (before formally congratulating them when we next have a business meeting in person). Finally, we congratulate Susane Yesnick on a wonderful career as we interview her after her recent retirement.
We hope you are all staying safe, active, and engaged with CALL. We wish a healthful and fun remainder of your summer as we look toward the Fall, and we hope to (non-digitally) see you all as soon as possible. Take care and enjoy!
We have a lot of wonderful content from 2019 to share with you in this issue and are looking forward to the articles we’ll receive in 2020!
Thank you to our CALL members who wrote recaps of the valuable lessons learned and interesting sights from conferences they attended through CALL grants for this issue! Thanks also go to our leaders who have provided recaps of recent CALL events. Continue reading Letter from the Editors→
