DESCRIPTION

The PLL/SIS Corporate Law Librarians' Group is made up of librarians who function in a corporate environment, rather than a law firm environment. The group meets once a year at the AALL Annual Meeting and conducts the rest of its business by letter, telephone and e-mail.

HISTORY

The PLL/SIS Corporate Law Librarians' Group began informally about 1986 when Peggy Butler of New York Life Insurance Company gathered colleagues together during the annual meeting to discuss common problems and concerns. These original meetings were held on an ad hoc basis and were not announced in the programs. About 1990, they started having more "official" meetings, which were announced in the program and usually coincided with those of PLL's other groups. The topics for discussion usually come from ideas generated by members prior to the meeting and from concerns which come up during the roundtble.

IMPORTANT PROJECTS

DIRECTORY: The group has a directory of members. Currently, the directory is based only on members who have attended the meetings and submitted their names and addresses during annual meetings, or people who have contacted the chair for inclusion. Feedback from the corporate group indicates that the directory is used by the membership and that annual revisions continue to be an important priority for the group.
