There are a number of publishing areas to get to know on our new website, and I'd like to share one of them today, notables.The notables area is a common sharing area where VALL members can relay some of the interesting things they're reading online.
To add something, simply start a new blog post and use the drop down menu to classify it under Notables. Then, paste in your link into the body of the post; or write some comments and add a link to the appropriate words within your text.
A very simple approach, and a good opportunity to test out the new 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.

Value: The total value of the bursary to be awarded per year is $1,500 or an amount set by the VALL Executive. There may be more than one successful applicant per year, receiving a portion of the award.
