Message from the Chair
By Rosalie Sanderson, 2001-2002 ALL-SIS Chair
New York Law School
50 Worth St.
New York, N.Y.
Greetings and farewell!
This year sped by. At this time I'd like to thank all of you who have
worked hard on Task Forces, committees and programs. I would especially
like to thank Mike Bernstein and all members of this year's Strategic
Planning Committee for completing a draft strategic plan to guide our
future. I hope you will read it and pass your comments to Mark.
In my column last month, I raised the issue of relevance in response
to an article in the Chronicle of Higher Education about the drop in student
use of libraries. Thanks to those who shared your ideas about ways that
you are making your own libraries relevant to today's law students and
faculty. I've summarized your responses in an article for this newsletter.
We have some interesting ALL-SIS sponsored programs and events at the
annual meeting which I hope you will make an effort to participate in.
Many of you have worked hard to develop programs, activities and opportunities
for sharing our issues, successes and problems. It has been a pleasure
to work with you during this year, and I am excited about sharing your
accomplishments with our membership at our meeting in Orlando. Watch for
an Annual Meeting Grid on our website. Congratulations to the new ALL-SIS
officers who will have been elected by the time you read this issue, and
welcome to Merle Slyhoff who will begin her term as chair at the annual
meeting. See you soon!
