The 2016 Services to SEAALL Award was awarded to Pamela Melton, Associate Director for Library Administration, Coleman Karesh Law Library, University of South Carolina School of Law. The Service to SEAALL Award is presented to an individual who has given special service to the chapter and has a sustained record of services. As a former SEAALL President and former Local Arrangements Chair, Pamela exemplifies a strong service ethic for our organization. Pamela was unable to attend the Joint SEAALL SWALL Annual Meeting, but we managed to ambush surprise her at an alumni event at Washington & Lee School of Law that was being held simultaneously with our annual meeting. Congratulations Pamela!

Welcome to the Southeastern Chapter of the American Association of Law Libraries. SEAALL is a not-for-profit organization incorporated in Florida with the purposes of promoting law librarianship and developing and increasing the usefulness of law libraries, particularly those in the Southeastern area of the United States.


SEAALL was originally established in 1954 -- an expansion of the Carolinas Chapter (established in 1939 as AALL's first chapter). Today our membership is over 500 strong, representing law librarians from the private sector, government, academia, and more. For more on the history of SEAALL, please see From the SEAALL Attic by Hazel Johnson.


A continuing mission for SEAALL has always been to provide educational services for its members. This is primarily accomplished through the many educational offerings at our annual meeting and through instructive articles, pathfinders, and bibliographies in our newsletter, The Southeastern Law Librarian.
