CALL Student Groups to Meet at Montreal 2013 Conference in May

This is a follow-up to the January 23, 2013 post entitled Dalhousie’s School of Information Management Launches CALL's First Student Group.

Last November, the executive of the Canadian Association of Law Libraries (CALL) approved the creation of the new Student Special Interest Group or SIG.

So far, the SIG has two student run branches, one at Dalhousie University’s School of Information Management in Halifax and one at the University of Western Ontario's Faculty of Information and Media Studies.

The SIG aims to encourage student membership within CALL and to promote Legal Information Management as a possible career path.

The SIG will be holding its first official meeting at the annual CALL 2013 Conference in Montreal on Sunday May 5, 2013 from 1:00 – 2:00.

At the meeting attendees will chose SIG Chair(s), discuss how to create branches of the CALL Student SIG at other library and information studies schools, and hear a few short presentations by professionals with advice for students seeking careers as Law Librarians.

Thank you for the update! The announcement via the CALL executive was the first I had heard of this exciting new development. I look forward to welcoming the new students groups to CALL.
