REFLECTIONS UPON RETIRING FROM
THE COLORADO SUPREME COURT LIBRARY

by Lois Calvert

"Write something about your retirement," Kumar said.

The oddest thing is, it doesnít seem all that long ago that I walked into Oscar Millerís office at the University of Colorado Law Library for an interview. It was 1966, and I worked there until 1986. Since then Iíve been a Lexis representative, a law librarian at two law firms in Denver (Sherman & Howard and Holme, Roberts and Owen), and the Colorado Supreme Court Librarian.

1966 was my first year as a member of AALL and SWALL, and Iíve been a CoALL member since it was formed. Iíve been on multiple committees and once upon a time was President of both SWALL and CoALL. (Many moons ago.)

Itís been fun. Of course there have been a million changes, but everything changes (hopefully) in 35 years. The best part, of course, has been the people. The patrons have been an endless source of entertainment. (!) Iíve worked with and for many who became personal friends as well as colleagues. The people I met at meetings, whether national, regional, or local, have enriched both my professional and personal life. Sometimes a problem can be solved by talking to someone with a different perspective, and sometimes it is helpful to know that no one has figured it out.

I hope to keep in touch. Iíll still be a member, although with a new address, phone and e-mail.
