                            CHICAGO ASSOCIATION OF LAW LIBRARIES




The Chicago Chapter of the American Association of Law Libraries held four meetings this
past year. The programs consisted of an analysis of law librarianship as a profession
by Prof. Morris Cohen, Immediate Past President of the American Association of Law
Libraries; a panel of representatives from several companies publishing legal materials
which was moderated by Myron Jacobstein; a most entertaining address by Dee Brown,
author of Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee; and a very informative discussion of the Amer-
ican Association of Law Libraries by the current President, Viola Bird.

Two new committees were appointed. The total membership of the Chicago Chapter was
increased substantially as a result of the diligence of the Membership Committee with
Charlotte Stillwell as Chairman. Early in the year a question was raised as to whether
the Constitution of our local Chapter required amendments or even revision to bring it
into harmony with the Constitution of the National Association. To answer this question,
a special committee was appointed with Prof. Igor Kavass, of Northwestern University, as
Chairman to carefully examine the entire Constitution and By-Laws of the Chicago Chapter,
and make any recommendations considered appropriate. This Committee has drafted a com-
pletely revised Constitution which will be considered by the entire membership next year.

It can be said without reservation that the Chicago Chapter has just completed a most
active and rewarding year. Many of the members contributed generously to Chapter activ-
ities. Such efforts are greatly appreciated especially when one remembers that many of
these people have also been deeply involved in planning for the national convention in

                                  FOR PHOTOCOPYING RIGHTS

Shortly after receiving a favorable ruling from the Commissioner to the Court of Claims
on the question of photocopying rights, the Maryland-based publisher, Williams & Wilkins,
took out a full-page ad--modestly titled A Statement of Fact and Faith--announcing that
aisimple plan based on the idea of a reasonable annual license fee for the right of copy-
ing our materials had been worked out. The plan would give libraries the right to photo-
