CALL Conference - News from Annual General Meeting
The Canadian Association of Law Libraries is holding its annual conference in Calgary right now and the members' annual general meeting took place this morning.
Among the announcements that attracted my attention were the following:
1) the Education Committee's 2011-2012 webinar series will be launched in June. The topics: Yahoo Pipes - Slicing and Dicing RSS feeds for legal pratice groups (June); Researching Federal and Ontario Legislation (September - 1st of series on legislative research across jurisdictions); Building and Using Collaborative Tools in a Law Library (November); Building an RFP (January); Metadata and Legal Taxonomies for Law Firms and Law Libraries (March). Rates and registration info can be found on the CALL website (http://www.callacbd.ca)
2) the CALL website redesign is moving forward and members will be given a first look this summer. The new site will reside on a Drupal open source platform. The new site will have collaborative spaces for committees and interest groups such as blogs, wikis and RSS feeds. There will also be a job board and PayPal for electronic registration and fee payment for events.
