The LLNE Fall Meeting will be held in Portland Maine, at the Westin Harborview Hotel on Friday October 28, 2016. For links to the conference and hotel reservations see: http://lawguides.mainelaw.maine.edu/c.php?g=562485
The program, entitled By The Numbers: Law Library Assessment, will focus on the tools used for data collection in law libraries and assessment of all segments of law librarianship. Teresa Migel-Sterns, Director of the Yale Law Library will talk about ALLStAR Benchmarking, a tool to be used in academic law libraries for data collection and analysis.
Scott Bailey, Director of Research Services at Squire Sanders in D.C., will be discussing a project he and the Private Law Librarians & Information Professionals SIS of AALL has developed for assessing the work of private law libraries.
A third session will be an UN-Conference focusing on the new ABA Standards for Outcome Assessments and what academic law librarians are doing to comply with these standards in their legal research instruction. This will be led by Stephanie Weigmann, Associate Director for Research, Faculty Services and Educational Technology at Boston University School of Law.
Last, but certainly not least, the afternoon will be capped off with a celebration of LLNE’s 70th Anniversary. There will be cake and champagne and displays filled with LLNE memories! So reach out to the retired members you still keep in touch with and invite them to join us in our celebration!
Registration for the meeting will be 40.00 per person, with a reduced rate for retired LLNE members and students (20.00). There is a block of rooms set aside for this meeting at the Westin Harborview Hotel to be reserved at a reduced rate.
