AALL in San Francisco
Mary McNulty
With one of the world's most picturesque cities as the backdrop, AALL held its
85th Annual Meeting in San Francisco in July. The hours, days, and months of
meticulous planning produced an Annual Meeting that moved like the proverbial
well-oiled wheel. In this case, the wheel was attached to a Rolls Royce. The key word
was elegance and it was evident in every facet of the Annual Meeting. The Local
Arrangements Committee: Joan Howland, Virginia Kelsh, Constance Scott, Marian
Shostrom, Nora Skrukrud, Hazel Johnson, Donna Purvis, Teresa Oppedal, Judy Janes,
Nancy Lewis, Donna Williams, Edward Hosey, Molly McCluer, James Moldovan, Lee
Ryan, Linda Spath, Mary Hood, Mark Mackler, Lauri Flynn, Jean Aronovitz, Janice
Kelly, Alice McKenzie, Lynn Lundstrom, Gail Winson, Yvonne Boyer and everyone
who worked with them, brought an air of sophistication to each event. The Closing
Banquet, billed as Black and White and Candlelight, was the crowning glory with
those in attendance bedecked in a dizzying array of black and white attire. And asking
Bob Berring to be the Master of Ceremonies was a stroke of genius.
Mary Oliver, recipient of the Marian Gould Gallagher Distinguished Service Award,
also received a well-deserved round of applause for her years in the profession (and
for her wry wit at the podium) at the President's Luncheon in San Francisco.
A record-breaking 2,916 members, exhibitors, staff and invited guests were in
attendance, and Joan and Virginia endeavored to hand each and everyone of them
a piece of Ghiradelli chocolate (sometimes two or three). The Exhibit Hall boasted
209 booths sponsored by 142 finns. (Chocolate was a popular item in the Exhibit
Halls, too).
In spite of all the times in the last year that we heard or read Mark Twain's
witticism about spending his coldest winter in San Francisco one summer, the
weather behaved beautifully. It was perfect for taking on those hills to walk off the
meals enjoyed in North Beach, Russian Hill, Chinatown, or any delicious eating
establishment you may have found.
The members of the Education Committee made managing 76 programs and
workshops over a six-day period look so easy that it belied their two years of hard
work. Congratulations to Patrick Kehoe, Chair; Lei Seeger, Vice Chair/Chair Desig-
nate; Rhea A-L Ballard, Taylor Fitchett, Jean M. Holcomb, Mon Yin Lung, Sandra
Marz, Roy M. Mersky, Jill Sidford, and Merle J. Slyhoff for a stellar presentation of
continuing education choices. Once again, the most popular programs were the ones
that help librarians do their jobs more efficiently and productively-The Art of
Reference: Accountability and Quality Control; Credibility: How to Earn It, How
to Keep it; The Unauthorized Practice of Law: Can You Stop Worrying and Help
the Patron?; A Comparative Look at Copyright in the Library Setting; Online
Subsystems; and E-mail Isn't Just a Substitute for Snailmail: A Hitchhiker's Guide
to the Nets.
