MAALL Local Arrangements Manual

This Manual is based on the experiences of the St. Louis 2001 Local Arrangements Committee and on observations made at Mid-America Association of Law Libraries (MAALL) meetings for about 10 years.  This Manual was accepted and approved by the Executive Board of the Mid-America Association of Law Libraries, July 9, 2002.   The author wishes to thank the members of the St. Louis 2001 Local Arrangements Committee, especially the Steering Committee members.  Without their dedication and many hours of hard work, neither the Manual, nor the meeting, would have been possible!
