November Message from the President of the Canadian Association of Law Libraries

The President of the Canadian Association of Law Libraries (CALL), Rosalie Fox, recently sent members her most recent President's Letter.

Among the highlights:
  • The deadline for nominations has been extended for the Denis Marshall Memorial Award For Excellence in Law Librarianship and for Honoured Member
  • there is still time to send in nominations for the Hugh Lawford Award for Excellence in Legal Publishing
  • CALL is organizing a New Law Librarian’s Institute at the University of Western Ontario from June 5-10, 2011. It will consist of an intensive week of substantive law sessions (First Year Law 101) with mentoring and instruction on law librarianship and legal research instruction and methodology
  • the CALL website is being redesigned - the redesign project has a blog that includes information for people who want to be usability guinea pigs
  • the CALL executive is considering running a salary survey that would also include non-members working in law libraries across the country. The last salary survey dates back to 2006
  • the annual general meeting will be extended at the 2011 annual conference being held in mid-May in Calgary: the meeting will begin on Sunday afternoon, and continue on Tuesday. This is in response to complaints that recent AGMs have been too compressed and rushed
