Number 27                                                           November, 1959


          A project for the dissemination of information on the legal writings
and literature of all countries was launched in Los Angeles early in September
of this year under an $88,600.00 grant from the Ford Foundation.

          The grant will enable the American Association of Law Libraries to
provide a quarterly index to foreign legal periodicals, and, incidentally, the
establishment of an internationally acceptable legal terminology.

          Publication of the new Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals is scheduled
 for February, 1960. The Index will be published by the Institute of Advanced
 Legal Studies, University of London, for the American Association of Law
 Libraries. Kurt Schwerin, Assistant Law Librarian, Northwestern University,
 served as coordinator of the original project investigating the possibility
 of publishing the Index. He is now serving on the Committee on the Index. The
 subscription price is $25.00. Subscriptions may be placed with William D.
 Murphy, Treasurer, American Association of Law Libraries, 2900 Prudential
 Plaza, Chicago 1.


          At the organization meeting of the International Association of Law
Libraries in New York on June 24, Mr. William R. Roalfe, Librarian of North-
western University School of Law, was elected President of the new Association,
and Mr. K. Howard Drake, Secretary and Librarian of the University of London,
Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, was elected Vice President. The Association
has mailed its first promotional letter.

          There are two kinds of memberships: (1) regular members who are de-
fined as being any person or institution interested in the acquisition and -
servicing of legal and related materials collected on a multi-national basis.
The annual dues of regular members are U. S. $5.00. (2) There are sustaining
members who include any publisher or book dealer as well as any other person
or-institution who desires-to support the Association's program. The dues of
sustaining members are U. S. $15.00.

          Every Law Librarian is invited to join the new Association.
