History

PrintEmail
The forerunner of SR-SIS, the Contemporary Social Problems SIS, was approved by the AALL Executive Board in 1977. Its roots, however, can be traced back to the formation of the Conference of Concerned Law Librarians, which developed into the Committee on Contemporary Social Problems (formed in 1973). In 1981, CSP-SIS merged with the Law Library Service to Institution Residents SIS, retaining the Contemporary Social Problems title. CSP became the Social Responsibilities SIS in 1993.
