Yemisi Dina, Chief Law Librarian at Osgoode, has been elected to the 2021-2022 Executive Board of the Canadian Association of Law Libraries (CALL/ACBD) as Vice President Two. The position, which will take effect following the CALL/ACBD Annual General Meeting in May, is a one-year term that will eventually progress to the role of President of the Association. Dina is the first person of colour to be elected to the Executive Board.
“Please join me in congratulating Yemisi on this important professional achievement,” Dean Mary Condon wrote in an email message on March 19 to the Osgoode community. “I have no doubt she will make a wonderful contribution to the Board, and a considerable impact more broadly on the development of law librarianship.”
Dina, who has been Osgoode’s Chief Law Librarian since 2019, has a master of public policy, administration and law degree from York University, as well as a master of library and information science degree from the University Of Ibadan, Nigeria. She served as Interim Chief Law Librarian from November 2017 to May 2019.
