New Horizons:
The 91st AALL Annual Meeting in Anaheim

The American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) will hold its 91st Annual meeting at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California, July 11-16, 1998.

The theme for the meeting is "New Horizons," referring to law librarians' constant learning and adapting to ever-changing realities or "horizons," and the opportunities these realities offer. Inspired by this theme, the Annual Meeting Program selection Committee has chosen to focus on four topics throughout the Meeting--Management, Information, Technology, and Law--and each main topic or "horizon" will be addressed by a prestigious plenary speaker.

The meeting's keynote speaker will be John Perry Barlow, co-founder of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, member of the board of directors for the online service The WELL, and lyricist for the Grateful Dead. A respected force in the electronic community, Yahoo Magazine has called Barlow "the Thomas Jefferson of the Internet." His knowledge of information technology and its impact on legal information will set a provocative tone for the whole meeting.

General information and a program announcement about the Anaheim meeting can be obtained by contacting the AALL Executive Staff Office at 312/939-4764 or aallhq@aall.org.
