We are pleased to welcome Tiffany Camp of the University of Connecticut School of Law Library as the new co-editor for LLNE News, along with Kyle Courtney. Tiffany is in the Access Services department and has worked at the UConn Law Library since 2012. She has also worked at the Hartford Public Library as a branch manager. She graduated from the University of Virginia and received her law degree from UConn Law. Tiffany is also a member of AALL’s Black Caucus (including its Community Service Committee) and is the Scholarship Chair of SNELLA. She has already had a good start in her communications role for LLNE as she took fabulous pictures at the recent LLNE Spring meeting hosted by UConn Law!
You may reach Tiffany at firstname.lastname@example.org or 860-570-5113. Drop by and say hello if you see her at the Fall meeting at the Boston College Law Library and definitely let her know if you have anything that you would like to include in a future issue of LLNE News.
The new LLNE News is here!
We have some great articles to offer this issue. Our guest columnist this issue is former Philadelphia resident Lisa Junghahn. She has a list of great sights, experiences, and food in the City of Brotherly Love for our AALL meeting. She has also designed a Google maps link for us to find those great places. (Here’s the link – read the article too!)
We are also introducing a new column from the public law library perspective. The Head of the Trial Court Libraries of Massachusetts, Marnie Warner, has written great piece on law libraries and access to justice. And our own Stephen Salhany gives us his insight into the victory of the Boston Bruins from a research perspective, of course.
Also, read about all our LLNE’ers programs at AALL – come out and support their poster sessions, presentations, and round tables!
This issue of the newsletter also continues our regular favorites such as Access Points, Thinking About Technology, and a continuation of the series “Agents for the Books.”
Have a Great Summer and see you in Philadelphia!

See you at the Spring Meeting!
The LLNE Service Committee is pleased to announce two upcoming volunteer opportunities with Community Servings, an organization that prepares, packages and delivers meals to individuals homebound with acute life-threatening illnesses and unable to shop or cook for themselves. The events, both associated with the organization’s annual Pie in the Sky fundraiser, will take place Saturday, November 10th and Saturday, November 17th. For additional details, please contact Jennifer Kessler, LLNE Service Committee Chair, at email@example.com or (617) 305-6708.
