When is it OK to cite to an electronic version of a statute? How and when do we apply the new citation rules for Illinois? What is ALWD, and how does it differ from the Bluebook? If you have ever found yourself asking questions like these, you are not alone. Legal citation can be a frustrating and daunting task for even the most seasoned law librarian. Our next CALL Continuing Education event is intended to clear up some of the most common mistakes and misconceptions about legal citation. Hope to see you there!

Just (barely!) in time for the holidays, the Winter issue of the CALL Bulletin has hit the icy streets! So pour your winter warmer of choice, curl up by the fire, and check out the first installment of the Bulletin’s New Member Q&A, a librarian’s tales of teaching law and technology, all the latest library policy dope from Springfield, and much more.
Early in the new year, we’ll be reaching out to all of you for your thoughts about any of your once beloved resources that have been lost to the ages, or any valuable resources that might now be at risk; see the bottom of page 15 for a teaser. But until then, enjoy the holidays, and this issue of the Bulletin!
Congratulations to CALL member Keith Ann Stiverson on her election to the AALL Executive Board! Keith serves as the Director of the Chicago-Kent College of Law Library and has been very active in both CALL and AALL over the years. She recently served on the Task Force on the Depository Library Program and the Government Policy Advisory Group, and as AALL observer to the NCCUSL Drafting Committee on the Uniform Electric Legal Material Act. We are all so grateful for Keith’s efforts to help get UELMA passed.
Keith’s term as AALL President will conclude with the 2016 AALL Annual Meeting right here in Chicago. Congratulations, Keith!
