Is this an
interim or annual report?: Annual report
activities the committee has done since last report:
1. Under the
charges of the CALA Board, re-defined the Committee's guidelines
2. Based on
revised committee guidelines, recommend and selected best books for the year
recommendations, if any, to the Board:
In order to keep the continuity and effectiveness of the
CALA Best Book Committee, half of the committee members shall have experience
serving in the previous committee, and new chair/co-chair shall be selected
from these second-year committee members for sustainability.
The publishers have been very supportive. For 2011 BBC,
review copies can be requested as soon as getting the bibliographic info to
avoid spring rush reading.
The "books" in name of the Best Books Committee was
presented in singular form in previous documents. We hope the amendments or
corrections could be made by the 2011 BBC.
