The Technical Services Special Interest Section (TS- SIS) promotes the communication of ideas, interests, and research in acquisitions, cataloging and classification, preservation, binding, and serials control in all types and sizes of law libraries.
The work of the Section is performed by five standing committees. These committees (Acquisitions, Cataloging and Classification, Exchange of Duplicates, Preservation, and Serials) conduct surveys, study problems or areas of concern, and plan convention programs and workshops.
Five discussion groups also meet at the Annual Meeting to address current problems and issues. These groups are the Acquisitions, Binding, Heads of Technical Services, and Technical Services in Law Firm Libraries roundtables, and the Heads of Cataloging Departments in Large Law Libraries discussion group.
TS-SIS publishes a newsletter jointly with OBS-SIS: Technical Services Law Librarian. It contains regular columns and non-substantive articles, current awareness items, and reports of convention meetings and committee activities. The Exchange of Duplicates Committee produces, and offers for subscription, lists of duplicate serial issues. The lists permit the coordination of duplicate exchange activity between participating Association libraries.
