Highlights from Tuesday, July 15
Energy levels remained high as the conference wound down on Tuesday. Attendees were up bright and early for informal coffee talk sessions focusing on such topics as Beyond Your Boundaries: What Ancient Legal Systems Can Tell Us About Working Globally; The Virtual Librarian: Providing Reference and Instruction at a Distance; Clinical Programs in the Law School: Sharing Strategies for Boosting the Role of the Law Librarian; and AALL's ROI Study: Value of Law Libraries Analysis and Report. The learning continued with morning sessions on big data opportunities, making a MOOC, and leveraging SharePoint.
But the big event of the day was the Association Luncheon. The celebratory lunch featured Marian Gould Gallagher Distinguished Service Award winners Robert C. Berring, Jr., Janis L. Johnston, and Carol Avery Nicholson and Joseph L. Andrews Legal Literature Award winners Ellyssa Kroski and Barbara Berdahl, Glen Anderson, Katherine Hedin, and Daniel Matthews.
Luncheon speaker Davita E. Vance-Cooks shared insights on how the Government Printing Office is transforming from a print-centric to a content-centric publishing operation.
After lunch, attendees spent their final hours with vendors in the Exhibit Hall during the delicious dessert reception and attended additional education sessions on perfecting your elevator pitch, empowering the next generation of firm librarians, and the bookless law library.
After four days of education, networking, and celebrating, attendees left San Antonio with an ignited future and renewed spirit. We look forward to seeing you all at the 2015 AALL Annual Meeting & Conference in Philadelphia July 18-21. See you again soon!
