Message from the Chair

By Rosalie Sanderson, 2001-2002 ALL-SIS Chair
Special Projects
New York Law School
50 Worth St.
New York, N.Y.

Greetings and farewell!

This year sped by. At this time I'd like to thank all of you who have worked hard on Task Forces, committees and programs. I would especially like to thank Mike Bernstein and all members of this year's Strategic Planning Committee for completing a draft strategic plan to guide our future. I hope you will read it and pass your comments to Mark.

In my column last month, I raised the issue of relevance in response to an article in the Chronicle of Higher Education about the drop in student use of libraries. Thanks to those who shared your ideas about ways that you are making your own libraries relevant to today's law students and faculty. I've summarized your responses in an article for this newsletter.

We have some interesting ALL-SIS sponsored programs and events at the annual meeting which I hope you will make an effort to participate in. Many of you have worked hard to develop programs, activities and opportunities for sharing our issues, successes and problems. It has been a pleasure to work with you during this year, and I am excited about sharing your accomplishments with our membership at our meeting in Orlando. Watch for an Annual Meeting Grid on our website. Congratulations to the new ALL-SIS officers who will have been elected by the time you read this issue, and welcome to Merle Slyhoff who will begin her term as chair at the annual meeting. See you soon!
