Canadian Association of Law Libraries 2018 Conference - Additional Annual Reports

This is a follow-up to the post entitled Canadian Association of Law Libraries 2018 Conference - More Annual Reports.

The Canadian Association of Law Libraries (CALL) started its 2018 annual conference this morning in Halifax.

In preparation for the event, committees and special interest groups (SIGs) have submitted their annual activity reports.

Here are a few extra ones I missed last week:
  • Academic Law Libraries SIG: one of the SIG's initiatives this past year involved the compilation of a Hate Crimes FAQ. This was related to concern expressed during a teleconference of SIG members about hate crimes on university campuses. The SIG is also partnering with the Legal Research and Writing (LRW) SIG on the creation of teaching videos for LRW and Indigenous collections in academic law libraries. Finally, it will start work on compiling a list of institutional activities or initiatives being undertaken in response to the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission on Indian residential schools
  • Legal Research & Writing SIG: the SIG has reached out to its membership to coordinate the collection of assignments, reference materials, research guides, and other teaching resources that instructors/professors would like to contribute to the Instructional Materials Bank available through the members only section of the CALL website
  • New Professionals SIG (see resources associated with this SIG on the CALL SIGs page): this SIG supports student members of CALL as well as new professionals in the first years of their law librarianship career. At the 2018 conference, it is sponsoring a panel discussion entitled "Taking the ‘Work’ Out of Networking: Build Relationships, Not a Stack of Business Cards". The SIG, one of CALL's most active with some 40 members, runs a listserv hosting monthly forum discussions on professional development opportunities, awards and scholarships, and other developments in the legal information profession
