The purpose of this handbook is to offer guidelines to the officers, committee chairs, and other members of the Technical Services Special Interest Section (TS-SIS). TS-SIS is one of the largest special interest sections in the American Association of Law Libraries (AALL). TS-SIS has four standing committees, plus a varying number of administrative committees, ad hoc committees, and roundtables. In addition to their activities during the year, TS-SIS entities meet during the AALL annual meeting.
The Executive Board consists of the Chair, the Vice Chair/Chair-elect, the Past Chair, the Secretary/Treasurer, two members-at-large, and the chairs of the four standing committees (Acquisitions, Cataloging and Classification, Preservation, and Serials).
The following pages contain the responsibilities of the elected officers and committee chairs of TS-SIS. These responsibilities are not inclusive and may be amended in the future. A copy of the current TS-SIS Bylaws (revised July 18, 2016 by TS-SIS members) and more specific policies, practices or projects related to section activities are included.
