Grant Park in the spring

From the Editors

This issue of the CALL Bulletin commemorates CALL’s 70th anniversary. CALL was formed in February 1947 and became an AALL chapter that June. Pieces in this issue are both retrospective and prospective.

A letter of congratulations from AALL President Ronald Wheeler kicks us off, then we have a piece in which six past presidents offer thoughts and reflections on CALL. Sharon Nelson chronicles the history of the CALL website, Matt Timko proposes three ways for academic libraries to maintain relevance, and there’s a piece about the development of the reading room at D’Angelo Law Library on the cusp of the digital revolution in legal research.

We also feature pieces from four CALL members on their time away from Chicago. Juanita Harrell covers her trip to the Washington, D.C., Trez Drake and Lisa Winkler report from the Association of College & Research Libraries conference, and Jamie Sommer reports from the Women’s Leadership Institute.

And don’t forget to catch up on previous CALL business with recaps of the March, April, and May executive board meetings and November and February business meetings.

Happy reading!
