AALLNET Linking Policy


Approved April 2005, Board Meeting, Tab 18

The purpose of AALLNET is to support the mission and strategic plan of the American Association of Law Libraries (AALL), specifically:

  • promoting and enhancing the value of law libraries to the legal and public communities,
  • fostering the profession of law librarianship, and
  • providing leadership in the field of legal information.

The Association and its chapters, committees, and special interest sections provide links to non-AALL websites as a convenience to AALLNET users and for their information. Links are selected based on the quality of information they offer and the relevance and utility of that information to the Association and its members.

Links to external websites do not constitute the Association's endorsement or approval of specific sites, agencies, companies, products, services, institutions, or organizations. The Association is not responsible for the content, arrangement, accuracy, opinions, timeliness, or privacy policies of the linked websites.

Links may be added or removed at the discretion of the responsible AALL unit, or the AALLNET Coordinator, in consultation with the AALLNET Committee. Questions and comments about specific links and suggestions for additional links should be addressed to the webmaster for the page on which the links appear. The Association will exercise its right to refuse the inclusion of links to sites that do not fall within in the scope of its interests, mission, strategic plan, and practices.

The Association welcomes other websites to link to http://www.aallnet.org/, provided that the American Association of Law Libraries is credited as the source. We especially invite law libraries, library and information schools, library associations, and legal community websites to direct users to AALLNET for information about careers in law librarianship.

The current policies governing AALLNET are found at http://www.aallnet.org/about/policy_aallnet.asp. The AALLNET Committee is responsible for setting and monitoring guidelines for types of links to other sites and reviewing links to ensure compliance with AALL's goals.
