There was a discussion of ways to distribute the questionnaire through
Int-Law, EURO-LEX, and other lists including Canadian, Australian, New
Zealand and others.
There was also a discussion of other ways of contacting potential libraries
for exchanges and visits and other ways to distribute the questionnaire.
It was suggested to distribute the questionnaire through foreign legal
scholars visiting the United States. It was suggested that the questionnaire
be translated and put on the Web. It was later suggested to have the English
version of the questionnaire on the Web as well. Bill McCloy said he could
arrange a Chinese or Japanese translation of the questionnaire. Another
source of information was librarians doing internships from abroad. It
was discussed that we should have an article in the AALL Spectrum about
the Clearinghouse and foreign exchange/visits. Having law library directors
help with the Questionnaire. Contacting the AALS Exchange Committee was
another place for information about exchange/visits and a way of possibly
distributing the questionnaire. Working with Summer Law School Programs
was suggested as a means to disseminate and gather information for exchanges
and visits. Other specific contacts were also discussed.
A number of members of the subcommittee volunteered to work on some
of these suggestions.
