Highlights from Fall/Winter 2012 WPLLA Newsletter
The Fall/Winter 2012 issue of the WPLLA Newsletter has been published by the Western Pennsylvania Law Library Association. The issue contains two articles I wish to note. First, a firm librarian describes how she become embedded within two practice groups and developed specialized skills to help those attorneys. Second is an article describing two free online resources that enable you to look up historical weather data and fligth paths of private planes.

Highlights from December 2012-January 2013 ALLUNY Newsletter
The December 2012-January 2013 issue of ALLUNY Newsletter contains some items of general interest. One article discusses implementing QR codes in libraries. While this topic has been discussed elsewhere, this piece focuses on implementation and provides a useful guide to the steps that should be taken when adding QR codes to library signage and documents. Two reports on the most recent ALLUNY meeting presentations will serve as good recaps for interested librarians who could not attend.

Highlights from Winter 2013 CALL Bulletin
The Winter 2013 issue of the CALL Bulletin has been posted by the Chicago Association of Law Libraries. This issue contains a number of interesting articles, including a piece on the prospects of the Uniform Electronic Legal Materials Act being passed in Illinois. Also notable are the reports of presentations delivered at the most recent Law Via the Internet, AALL, International Federation of Library Associations, and International Association of Law Libraries conferences. The IFLA and IALL reports are especially interesting because they describe a number of international law resources that I had not heard or thought of recently.
