Submitted by David McFadden
Attendees: David McFadden, Anne Burnett, Jeanette Yackle, Maria Smolka-Day,
Bill McCloy, Lyonette Louis-Jacques, Katherine Topulos, Charlotte Bynum,
Tracy Thompson, John McNeill, Rick Goheen (others were in attendance since
the Special FCIL Meeting was being held at 4:30 in the same room.)
It was reported that the clearinghouse questionnaire had been translated
into Chinese by Nongji Zhang of Harvard. Bill McCloy will help select libraries
with law programs in China to send the questionnaire and cover letter.
Katherine Topulos and Catharine Krieps volunteered last year to do the
French translation and will continue to work on that. Jeanette Yackle agreed
to do the Portuguese translation. It was also suggested that a request
for other help with translations of the questionnaire be posted on Int-Law
and the FCIL listserv.
David McFadden agreed to arrange to have the questionnaire posted in
English on Int-Law and EURO-LEX.
Lyonette Louis-Jacques volunteered to draft a letter for all AALL/AALS
law school deans and library directors to solicit their help in distributing
the questionnaire and in other ways helping us gather contacts for possible
foreign visits/exchanges. Her deadline is the end of September.
Anne Burnett will help with getting questionnaire information in the
FCIL Newsletter and on the Web site.
Lyonette Louis-Jacques also agreed to help identify other organizations
and groups that have librarian exchange programs that we could work with.
Her deadline is the end of September.
Charlotte Bynum will be contacting all of the libraries that have previously
responded to the questionnaire, which was last published in the FCIL
Newsletter, Vol.10, Nos. 2/3, February/May 1996 and update their information.
