Working Committee active during the 2013-14 ELLA year.

Call for Last Copy Committee members…

At today’s ELLA meeting we decided to form a last copy committee whose mandate is to review the potential for coordinating access to both current and historical legal material across the Edmonton law library community. The committee will communicate with stakeholders, gather information, identify collection sharing opportunities and participate in the implementation of any feasible outcomes.

Today’s meeting produced the following volunteers: Grant Kaylor, Rick Leech, Sandi Madvid, Josette McEachern, Ana San Miguel, Julie Olson and Christine Watson.  Gisele Abt will also provide input.

We intend to consult with stakeholders from all types of law libraries. If you want to participate or learn more about the committee’s objectives you can post a comment here using the ‘Leave a reply’ button at the top of this message.  Or email by October 4th, 2013. (We would like to hold our first meeting sometime after that date.)

We would love to hear from you.

September 25 meeting

Thanks to all who attended our first meeting of the year.  The discussion about ELLA’s potential objectives and paths around last copy were invigorating.  Thanks to ELLA member Josette McEachern, Dentons, for agreeing to coordinate a Last Copy Committee who will work on defining issues and objectives.

A reminder that we are in in the midst of our fall membership drive. Link to the membership form, enter your coordinates and send in your very modest membership fee.  The Member Directory will be a password protected document. We look forward to seeing you!

The Executive will be meeting soon to advance our program for the fall.  If you have suggestions, please reach out by email to

Cheers, Shaunna
