16 steps to the 16th ed.: A Sensitization Service of the IIR Library

 When the good folks who produce the Chicago Manual of Style released the 16th edition of the Style Manual, we decided to email every single academic staff member  and research assistant every day for 16 days to alert them to the significant changes within the Manual. This is captured in the style changes handout, 16 steps to the 16th ed.
