Librarians getting Latte!
Enjoy the first episode of LLNE’s Librarians Getting Latte!
Special thanks to Ron Wheeler, Liza Rosenof, Elliott Hibbler, Ellen Frentzen, Rick Buckingham and the folks at AALL/Bloomberg for the continuing education grant that helped fund this project.
If you have ideas for any law librarians you’d love to see in an upcoming episode, please let us know! We’re especially keen to hear from law librarians outside Massachusetts who are working in non-academic settings.
Who are we?
LAW LIBRARIANS OF NEW ENGLAND (LLNE) was organized in 1946, when 17 law librarians gathered to meet each other and to consider the advantages of forming a professional association. Over the years LLNE has grown to over 400 members representing more than 100 libraries in the six New England states. Members come from all segments of the legal community, including academic libraries, federal and state courts and agencies, county and public law libraries, corporate legal departments, publishers, vendors, bar associations, and private law firms.
