Share Your Great Work!-National Legal Research Teach In: Call for Contributions

Over the past eleven years Teach-In materials have been distributed to an increasing number of interested people in diverse institutions all over the world. In 1993, for the first Teach-In, resource kits were distributed to 315 locations and promotional items (posters & bookmarks) went to about 200 people. A new record has been set each year, culminating in 2001 when resource kits were sent to over 700 people and over 20,000 notepads were used for promotional purposes! From these brief figures it is easy to see that the Teach-In has become an integral part of the law librarian landscape.

For ideas from past Teach-Ins, see the RIPS Teach-In web page at
It is never too early to plan for success! Now is the time for YOU to become involved in the creation of these materials! Please take a few minutes to consider if you have research instruction materials (including teaching techniques, training scripts, lecture notes, outlines, handouts, exercises, lesson plans, user guides, pathfinders, research guides, or descriptions of past training events) that you could contribute. If you do or if you have comments or suggestions, please contact Gail Partin or Kristin Gerdy as soon as possible (but no later than January 10, 2003).

Thanks for making our eleventh Teach-In the best one yet!
