The summer has wound down, so we’re happy to present you with the summer 2016 issue of the CALL Bulletin. And what a summer it was. Hosting the AALL Annual Meeting in Chicago gave many of us the chance to extend the collegiality and hospitality that we as CALL members enjoy on a regular basis. As mused by Joanne Kiley, it was a great conference and a real treat to hear so many of our colleagues say, “I love Chicago!” Continue reading From the Editors→

It’s difficult to believe that fall lasts until December 21 when we’ve already experienced sub-zero temperatures here in Chicago, but here we are. Perhaps this issue of the CALL Bulletin will be a pleasant reminder of warmer times.
Spring time in Chicago. Hooray! We’ve had snow and rain, and it’s been very cold, but I have seen shoots of leaves and flowers blooming, so we’re leaving behind the old and bringing in the new. Like the weather, the CALL Bulletin is changing. This is my last column as co-editor and the end of my three-year term as co-chair of the Bulletin Committee.
Happy New Year, everyone, and welcome to the Winter 2016 issue of the CALL Bulletin! This issue has something for everyone.

Thanks to Joanne Kiley, Clare Willis, Tom Gaylord, Jill Meyer, Therese Clarke Arado, and Lindsey Carpino for running for office. We appreciate your willingness to serve on the CALL Executive Board!
The Winter 2016 issue is also a special “Chicago International”-themed issue of the CALL Bulletin! Guest editors, Matthew Timko and Sharon Nelson, introduce us to great pieces on CALL member travels abroad, cultural heritage museums, ethnic foods, unique collections, people, and other foreign, comparative, and international legal (FCIL) resources in Chicago.

In case you missed it, this year’s AALL Annual Meeting & Conference took place in Philadelphia from July 18 – July 21. As promised, our correspondents were on location in Philadelphia to represent CALL and to report back to our members who were not able to make it to the conference this year.
This supplement to the 2015 Summer Issue of the CALL Bulletin serves to highlight Philadelphia, the conference itself, and the achievements and activities of our members on a national stage. As always, CALL was well-represented at the annual meeting, with presentations, awards, and a wealth of new friends to show for it!
As all Chicagoans know, Summer is the briefest and most precious season of the year. The annual Summer issue of the Bulletin, in turn, is regarded by many as the sweetest of all Bulletins. As such, I invite all of you to adjust your beach chairs, reapply sunscreen, and settle in for Issue 236 of the award winning CALL Bulletin.Continue reading From the Editors→
Welcome to the Spring Issue of the CALL Bulletin, which we are finally able to type with a straight face, thanks to the rapidly-improving weather!

We have a very exciting and colorful Spring issue of the Bulletin, featuring works of art from CALL libraries. Thank you to those who were able to share these pieces with us.
