From the Editor’s Notes:
In this issue (LDQ 2011: Volume 18, Number 4), Mary Talley discusses the virtual embedded information professional and the importance of relationships when forming that role in your organization. The author and owner of Talley Partners shows how to successfully build your virtual embedded presence. Also, it’s election time so be sure to read up on the slate of candidates for 2012 and vote!
This issue demonstrates how diverse and international the Legal Division is. Featured in this issue is the first installment of the “Canadian Corner” column. Kim Clarke, Director of the Bennett Jones Law Library in Calgary, Alberta, brings you information on the Calgary Statement on Free Access to Legal Information. The President of SLA Europe, Sara Batts, brings us news from the UK and EU as well as the regular installment of “Letter from Australia.”
This is my last issue as editor of the Legal Division Quarterly. I am honored to have served the Legal Division in this capacity for the last four years, and I look forward to continuing my service to the division in other ways. I have enjoyed working with many talented division members during the course of my tenure as editor.
Special thanks go to former editor Barbara Silbersack, who has provided a wealth of sage advice over the years, and Constance Ard, who recruited me to the position. My thanks to everyone who has contributed articles, photos, ideas, and encouragement, particularly Tracy Maleeff, who has always been willing to supply articles when needed.
I am pleased to hand over the reins of the LDQ to newly appointed editor Jessica King. She will undoubtedly bring a fresh new perspective to the newsletter.
I have always appreciated the uniqueness of this publication as a forum for Legal Division members and other legal information professionals to discuss what is important to us.
Thank you for your support and dedication over these last few years.
Liz Polly, Editor
