Happy July 24th 2008 for VALL

What a wonderful day for VALL. Thanks to Andy, Rob, Susannah and - last but by no means least, the amazing Steve. Let's start sharing!

Welcome to the New VALL Website

The new VALL website is finally up! We're still in beta mode, and there will be some bugs along the way, but taking this site live is a fantastic step none the less. 

A big thanks to the VALL website team - our long time webmaster Andy Froese, our new webmaster Rob Golbeck, and the exceptionally hard work of Susannah Tredwell! (who painstakingly created accounts for everyone in the VALL membership)

An announcement email with how to login should go out later today. Many of the former members only aspects will magically appear once you log into the site. We'd also like to encourage everyone to fill out their profiles, change their password, and to add their picture! My personal photoshop services are available if you wish to forward a great pic of yourself.

UBC SLAIS Co-op program

Dear Vancouver Association of Law Libraries,

I'm pleased to let you know that this Fall the UBC graduate School of Library, Archival, and Information Studies Co-op Program admitted a record number of students. Over 60 students will be available for co-op work terms from May-August 2008. 

We will begin accepting job descriptions from employers the week of January 7: watch for a reminder email in the new year. And in the meantime, if you have questions about the program and our students, or the process of posting a job, feel free to contact me or visit our web site at
