OBS-SIS Procedures Manual

2019 revision

The purpose of this manual is to offer guidelines to the officers and committee chairs of the AALL Online Bibliographic Services Special Interest Section.

The Board consists of a Chair, Vice-Chair, Past Chair, the Secretary/Treasurer and two Members at Large. Chairs of the standing committees are consulted periodically through the year on various issues. Board meetings are held annually at the AALL Annual Meeting. The outgoing Board generally meets via conference call prior to Annual Meeting. The incoming Board generally meets a day or two later to prepare for SIS activities in the coming year.

OBS-SIS jointly sponsors the publication Technical Services Law Librarian (TSLL) with the Technical Services SIS. TSLL is published quarterly, has an editor and columnists..

The SIS co-sponsors a series of dine-arounds with the Computer Services, Research Instruction and Patron Services, and Technical Services SIS. These events replaced an earlier vendor funded reception.

The following pages contain the responsibilities of the officers and chairs of the Online Bibliographic Services SIS. These responsibilities are not inclusive and may be amended in the future. Among the other items included in the handbook is a copy of the current AALL Bylaws, the duties of SIS officers from the AALL SIS Handbook, copies of the program and workshop proposal forms.
