with over 1600 members is a challenge, especially when that organization is made up of volunteers. PLL/SIS, long known for its many activities, has over 20 standing committees and groups. each one with its own set of guidelines and procedures --borne from the experience of doing the work of the section over the years. This manual is an attempt to document these procedures in order to facilitate t he smooth transition from one year's committee to the next. The question we asked last year's chairs was, "What do you wish your predecessor had told you about the committee or group that you would now like to pass along to your successor?

Through meetings and collaborations, some of these groupings have evolved into PLL subsections. Presently, the PLL/SIS sponsors four groups and three caucuses under its aus p ices: The Groups are the Corporate Law Librarians, Independent Law Librarians, Records Management Law Librarians and Technical Services Law Librarians. The Caucuses are: Intellectual Property Law Librarians (begun in 1996)Solo Law Librarians and Multi-Loc ation Libraries (both begun in 1997). Each of these groups and caucuses gathers some time during the annual meeting. Funds for special projects of these groups come from the SIS, and must be approved by the PLL/SIS Executive Committee. \par \par The four Groups: \par \par The Corporate Law Librarians generally work for either a corporation's legal department or the corporate department of a law firm library. They deal with specific problems of running a law library in a corporation, such as managing both the records center and the library or dealing with SEC regulations. \par \par The Independent Law Librarians are free lancers, consultants, filing services, information specialists, and others who work with law libraries and legal materials, but have some type of employment other than a single, permanent full-time position. \par \par The Records Management Law Librarians are librarians who are responsible for managing records and \par conflicts in their firms and corporations. \par \par The Technical Services Law Librarians have as their objective the improvement of standards of \par bibliographic control in law firm libraries, and introduction of automation and technology into the \par working environment of law firms, where the small size of the collection often does not warrant the sophisticated systems developed for larger collections. \par \par The three Caucuses: \par \par }\pard \ql \li0\ri0\widctlpar\aspalpha\aspnum\faauto\adjustright\rin0\lin0\itap0 {\cgrid0 The Intellectual Property Librarians are librarians who work in firms that have intellectual property \par }\pard \ql \li0\ri0\widctlpar\aspalpha\aspnum\faauto\adjustright\rin0\lin0\itap0 {\cgrid0 practices.

About 1990. we started having more "official" meetings, which were announced in the program and usually coincided with those of PLL's other groups (record managers, etc). For about 3 years running (in the 1990's). we used the hour meeting on Sunday morning for a program with speakers or panel, and obtained another hour that same afte r noon for continuing roundtable discussion, The programs met with mixed results. probably due to competition from other programs [in Seattle we were up against a very popular and well-attended program on CD-ROMS]or because we had not adequately publicized w hat we were doing. However. our members continue to enjoy the roundtable format. regardless of when this meeting occurs. so for 1996 I have asked for a two hour block of time Sunday afternoon for the corporate law librarians roundtable discussion. The top ics for discussion usually come from ideas I get talking with a few members prior to the meeting. and from concerns which come up during the roundtable. \par \par }{\ul\cgrid0 Officers \par }\pard \ql \li0\ri0\widctlpar\aspalpha\aspnum\faauto\adjustright\rin0\lin0\itap0 {\cgrid0 \par We do not hold elections or do anything formal in terms of who chairs the group.
