LLNE Service Project: Public Libraries Book Drive at the Spring Meeting

In conjunction with the LLNE Outreach to Public Libraries Service Initiative, we are sponsoring a book drive to collect a mini-collection of law books to donate to a Connecticut public library in need.
LLNE Book Drive: LLNE Outreach to Public Libraries

Donations of books or funds will be collected at the Spring Meeting. New books are preferred, but recently superseded editions withdrawn from your own library’s collections are also welcome. Checks may be made payable to LLNE and specify “Public Libraries Book Drive” in the memo field.

Details and a wish list of titles are available at the Spring Meeting website.

LLNE Fall Meeting 2013

Social Law Library will be hosting the LLNE annual Fall Meeting on Friday, October 4th, 2013. For more details, agenda, speakers, and registration information, please go to the meeting website.

This year’s topic is the “new normal” in law libraries. It’s something we have all been talking about but what does it really mean for our jobs, our collection and, most importantly, our users? Tracy Thompson from NELLCO will provide a lay of the land followed by a day of presentations and discussion about just what it means to be “normal” in this “new” landscape.

We hope you’ll join us! #llnefall13

Looking for a few good librarians

The AALL Annual Meeting newspaper, the Hub, and its companion blog, the Hub-bub, are looking for energetic law librarians to join our team in Boston.  The paper and blog will be covering all aspects of the meeting including events at the conference, local attractions, general announcements, and your impressions of the meeting.  Folks who sign on to the team will be considered official bloggers for the conference and enjoy benefits such as dedicated space with wifi and power outlets in program rooms for blogging about programs and an “AALL Blogger” badge ribbon to facilitate in person interactions with attendees.  

Please contact Joan Shear, joan.shear@bc.edu if you are interested in being an official reporter for the newspaper or Michelle Pearse, mpearse@law.harvard.edu, if you are interested in joining the blogging adventure.   Even if you don’t want to commit to regular reporting or blogging, one-time posts or contribution of content/news generally is greatly appreciated!   Copy for the preconference electronic edition of the Hub should be sent to joan.shear@bc.edu no later than June 7, and for the first print edition no later than July 9.
