|2006 WSLL Highlights -- Jane Colwin, State Law Librarian|
Once again the newsletter team has asked me to summarize our many and varied accomplishments over the past year. As usual, our staff has been busy adding to, organizing and improving access to our collections, responding to your questions, and teaching locally and around the state. We’ve also had the pleasure of cheering for several of our award-winning staff, the sadness in saying good-bye to long-time staff, and the opportunity to welcome new colleagues.

The DCLRC would like to thank all of its supporters and collaborators for the assistance, encouragement and partnership it has received throughout 2006. We look forward to all that 2007 has to bring!
