The 2021-2022 CALL Archives Committee was comprised of Committee co-chairs Brittany Adams and Lucy Robbins, as well as Committee members, Claire Toomey Durkin and Joe Mitzenmacher. We tried to find material for the 75th anniversary, but due to a lack of staffing at our libraries and other difficulties, it could not be completed. The COVID pandemic continued to be an issue in our work on this committee, and thus, this committee was mostly inactive.
Co-Chairs: Lucy Robbins, Brittany Adams
Members: Patricia Scott, Joe Mitzenmacher, Matt Timko

The 2019-2020 CALL Archives Committee was comprised of Committee co-chairs Brittany Adams and Lucy Robbins, as well as Committee members, Patricia Scott, Jill Meyer and Matt Timko. Joe Mitzenmacher served as board liaison.
The CALL archives were moved back to the city from Northern Illinois University to Loyola University Chicago. The main effort this year was to get the new archives set up at Loyola and to make a plan to digitize the files. The CALL board authorized the committee to purchase file cabinets to house the archives, but with the disruption of the year due to COVID-19, we were not yet able to do so. During the 2020-2021 year, we plan to continue to set up the archives and begin the digitization process using the CALL hard drive and/or CALL Google account.
During the 2017-2018 year, the Membership Committee published updates to the CALL Membership Directory in July 2017, September 2017, and January 2018. Over this year, the Membership Committee also assisted with updating the CALL Listserv email list and we worked with AALL representatives to create a list of potential CALL members.
