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.
