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 five 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 five standing committees (Acquisitions, Cataloging and Classification, Preservation, Professional Development Committee, 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-SISĀ Bylaws (revised July 18, 2016 by TS-SIS members) and more specific policies, practices or projects related to section activities are included.
