Vintage Bar Journals Looking for Home
The ABA Library in the DC office is offering free nicely bound volumes of bar journals from 17 states. The collection, amassed over many years, dates back to the 1970s through the late 2000s. With limited physical space to maintain the journals and a deadline of September 12 for disposing of the volumes, our staff wants to know if individuals responsible for the archives of past journals for their states are interested in obtaining any of these publications. In addition, it would be helpful if you could spread the word to others at your bar who might be interested.  The list of available volumes is here. If you are interested or know of anyone else who might be, please contact Librarian Jill Sandor at by Sept. 7.
