AALL: The online resource for the Practice of Law Librarianship

Digitization and Educational Technology

Charge: AALL has been interested in technical developments that affect librarianship for many years. Originally, committees were assigned to monitor and report to the Executive Board and membership about developments and applications of audio and visual technology to law study and practice. As these developments have encompassed a wider variety of topics, more members have become involved. In 1979, the Micrographics and Audiovisual SIS was approved and the Audiovisual Committee's work shifted to the SIS. The stated objectives of the SIS are:

  1. To disseminate information in micrographic, audiovisual and other imaging formats;

  2. To further the continuing education of librarians in the areas of micrographics, audiovisuals and other electronic media;

  3. To promote the effective and creative use of micrographic and audiovisual technologies;

  4. To cooperate with similar special interest groups of other organizations such as the American Library Association's AV Committee.

The SIS currently has three working subcommittees: Audio/Video, Microform, and New Technologies. The subcommittees are designed to work on issues specific to their respective missions while meeting the objectives of the SIS. The SIS has a liaison with the ALA Audiovisual Committee and publishes a newsletter with articles concerning the development and application of media in law libraries.
