2 resign from AALL's vendor relations committee

Law Librarian Blog has a lengthy and troubling post about the AALL CRIV (Committee on Relations with Information Vendors) committee. This is the committee that plays the important role of, among other things, being "ombudsman" between law librarians and vendors. Joe Hodnicki of Law Librarian blog now reports that last month two members of the CRIV committeee tendered their resignations effective immediately. He goes on to explain "Why? Well one may say, well, I am saying and am not speaking for either Lucy or Caren, that our association has eviscerated this Committee's mission." The blogpost, and comments it elicited, is a must-read for any AALL member.
