This post describes some articles in AALL chapter newsletters that are likely to be interesting to librarians outside those chapters.
The Fall 2013 issue of SWALL Bulletin, the newsletter of the Southwestern Association of Law Libraries, contains an article describing themed book displays at the St. Mary's University School of Law Library. A vast variety of themes are possible and help show students and faculty the breadth of the library's collection. Also interesting in an article applying the marketing advice from an ABA Journal piece on marketing one's law practice. Joseph Lawson of the Fort Bend County Law Library shows how the marketing ideas can be used in private, government, and academic law libraries.
The Fall 2013 issue of WPLLA Newsletter, the publication of the Western Pennsylvania Law Library Association, contains reports on efforts to digitize the back files of the WPLLA Newsletter, the Cool Tools Café at the last AALL Annual Meeting, and a presentation on LexisNexis's process of editing and posting case law.
The Summer 2013 issue of LLAW Briefs, the publication of the Law Librarians Association of Wisconsin, has very thorough committee reports and an account of Korean librarians visiting the U.S. Courts Library in Milwaukee.
