by Tracy L. Thompson, Executive Director


Sharon Hamby O'Connor, slated to begin a two-year term as President of NELLCO in July, 2002, will be stepping down as Associate Dean for Library and Computing Services at the Boston College Law Library as of June 1, 2002. Sharon will be serving as Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at the Law School for the 2002-2003 academic year, followed by a sabbatical the next year. Sharon has served as the Director of BC's Law Library for 23 years and her presence will be missed in the daily life of the library.

NELLCO will also feel Sharon's absence. Sharon has been an active and involved member of NELLCO, and has strongly encouraged participation by her staff in the work of the consortium. Sharon has served as NELLCO's vice-president/president-elect since 2000. We send our best wishes with Sharon as she undertakes this new role in the life of the Boston College Law School, and we thank her for her dedication to NELLCO over the years.

Sharon's resignation means that she will not be serving as president of NELLCO for 2002-2004 term.  A new incoming President will be elected at the upcoming NELLCO Directors' Meeting, scheduled for April 25 at Franklin Pierce Law Center, in conjunction with the LLNE meeting on April 26.
