The new AALLNET site features the most current information on AALL leadership, with contact information for the Executive Board, Chapter Presidents, Special Interest Section Chairs, Committees and the AALL Executive Staff. The site also features the AALL education calendar and list of events, such as the upcoming 90th Annual Meeting to be held in Baltimore, July 19-24, 1997. Other areas covered include a list of member services, the latest news from the Washington Affairs Office, a comprehensive list of AALL products and publications, and links to AALL-related organizations.
Future additions to AALLNET include online discussion, excerpts from the official new AALL monthly magazine, AALL Spectrum, and a new legal information World Wide Web search engine, LIBClient (Legal Internet Browsing Client).
In addition to the new Web site, AALL now has broadcast e-mail capabilities. This mass-mailing function currently serves the 2000 members who have e-mail with the very latest Association news and information from its leadership.
The American Association of Law Libraries was founded in 1906 to promote and enhance the value of law libraries to the legal and public communities, to foster the profession of law librarianship, and to provide leadership in the field of legal information. Today, with almost 4,700 members, the Association represents law librarians and related professionals who are affiliated with a wide range of institutions: law firms; law schools; corporate legal departments; courts; and local, state and federal government agencies.
