AALL to Present "Managing Solo Libraries" and "Training The Internet Trainer"
The American Association of Law Libraries, with support from BNA, will present MANAGING SOLO LIBRARIES on Monday, June 19, 2000, in Boston, Massachusetts and TRAINING THE INTERNET TRAINER on Saturday, June 24, 2000, in Newark, New Jersey. Both of these full-day programs run from 9:00 a.m. to approximately 5:00 p.m.
Managing Solo Libraries, presented by Judith Siess, is designed to provide librarians with the management tools necessary to perform solo in a legal environment. Siess is President of Information Bridges International, Inc., a Cleveland Ohio-based consulting firm that provides information services to librarians around the world.
Training the Internet Trainer, presented by Wanda J. McDavid, will provide a guide to developing an in-house Internet training program. McDavid is the Library and Information Manager of Holland & Hart LLP in Denver, Colorado. She has taught classes on this topic for a variety of law-related groups. After a brief review of learning styles and communications skills, participants will spend the rest of the day developing an introductory Internet training course.
