We are looking for a VALL member to join the Programs Committee on the 2016/17 Executive. This role entails a one year commitment (and the option to stay on), with no experience necessary. You can read a brief job description on the VALL website, or feel free to contact me or any of the current Executive members with questions about the role.
The 2016/17 Executive is an enthusiastic and dynamic group. Please let me know if you would like to join them!
This is your chance to support a colleague and become the member of a vibrant, engaged professional association! Katherine Melville and Carolyn Petrie, members of the VALL community, are running for office on the executive board of the Canadian Association of Law Libraries. Join CALL/ACBD today and you can vote in the February elections. More information about the association, as well as the membership registration form, is available on the website.
The Peter Bark Professional Development Bursary was established by VALL to commemorate Peter Bark and his contribution to VALL and law librarianship. The Bursary assists VALL members in attending meetings or conferences of library associations, such as the Canadian Association of Law Libraries, or other library-related workshops or professional development.
The fund is sustained by donations from individuals, law book publishers and grants from VALL.
For more information about Peter Bark, please read his obituary, published in The Advocate, (1991) 49: 155-16. Thank you to The Advocate magazine for permission to post this article.
Guidelines for applicants
Value: The total value of the bursary to be awarded per year is $1,500. There may be more than one successful applicant per year, receiving a portion of that amount.
