Number 42                                           September, 1969

                        C.A.L.L. MEETINGS

Our Christmas Party was held December 13 at Blair House, but only
the hardy attended as the weather was miserable. Those who made
it had a good time due to the excellent planning and hard work of
the Program and Meetings Committees. The Introducing Game was
fun, the food fine and the program pleasing.

Our January 24, 1969, meeting, held at Chicago Bar Association,
had as guest and speaker then AALL President Earl-Borgeson, who
told of the matters which were under serious study and considera-
tion during his tenure. One was the Statistical Survey. This
had been difficult to get underway as there is great difference
of opinion as to what is important. There were three ad hoc
committees, which functioned during his term, to consider:

     1. Drafting of standards for librariest services and
         collections--for various types of libraries

     2. Membership structure

     3. Committee structure

In addition, he asked for suggestions regarding:

     1. Records and briefs--cooperative storage and use

     2. National structure of the Association regarding
         gifts and memorials

     3. Publications--Is there a job to be done which is
         not being done now?

Our March 21 meeting, held at Stoufferts Madison Street, featured
Mr. Richard A. Davis, Assistant Librarian of the Midwest Regional
Medical Library, Service Division, as speaker. He explained the
nature and intent of this library which is of interest to law
librarians because of the similarity of purpose to our needs.
Mr. Davis said that to establish a regional library (such as we
might hope to have) there are certain steps to be taken:

     1. There must be agreement between the libraries them-
         selves on the need.

     2. Proposals must be evaluated by the supporting Council.

3. There must be approval reached by all concerned.
