February 13, 2003

Beyond the Boundaries, the report of the AALL Special Committee on the Future of Law Libraries in the Digital Age sponsored by LexisNexis™, explores the virtual and physical evolution of law libraries in the future.

Printed and distributed in December 2002, Beyond the Boundaries describes possible models of academic, private and government law libraries of the future, analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of each model. The report examines how the facilities, collections and content, staffing, services, training, and budget of a law library will change as it transitions from a physical entity to a virtual one.

AALL mailed a free copy of Beyond the Boundaries to every member of the Association in December 2002. To purchase extra copies of the report for $35 each, please go to http://aallnet.org/products/pub_beyond.asp.

AALL thanks LexisNexis and the AALL Special Committee on the Future of Law Libraries in the Digital Age for their support of Beyond the Boundaries.
