Dear CALL Members,
By the time this issue reaches you, we will be at or near the end of another calendar year. For many of us, this quiet time offers a period of rebirth and reflection marked by new vows and new learning opportunities. It is in that spirit that we offer the2011 Winter CALL Bulletin. For this issue we decided to pause and focus upon what is new in terms of legal resources in our common jurisdiction, Illinois.
This issue offers arrange of perspectives on recent changes in the world of Illinois legal research and what law librarians today are currently working on. Jean M. Wenger from Cook County Law Library offers her thoughts on what county law libraries do today and on what their future might hold. Borrowing from his work for the Illinois State Bar Association, Tom Gaylord offers look at some recent changes to Illinois official government website.
