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 two 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 two standing committees (Metadata Management and Resource Management).

The following pages list the responsibilities of the elected officers, committee chairs, and other positions in TS-SIS. The lists of responsibilities are not meant to be exhaustive and may be revised in future editions. A copy of the current TS-SIS Bylaws (revised June 19, 2018) and more specific policies, practices or projects related to section activities are included.
