The mission of our special interest section, Legal Information Services to the Public Special Interest Section
(LISP) is to improve access to legal information and to promote legal information services to the public.
LISP promotes and encourages its members to provide research assistance
and training, either through local AALL chapters or individually by its
members. LISP publishes a reference brochure, "How to Research a Legal
Problem: A Guide for Non-Lawyers," and the Public Library Toolkit. LISP
awards the Kathy Garner Grant to provide AALL members with financial
assistance to attend the AALL annual meeting. LISP also is charged with
representing its members' interests and concerns within AALL.
Applications are now being accepted for the 2014 Kathy Garner Grant.
This grant, established in Kathy’s honor, will be used to cover the registration cost for attending AALL plus some help in covering travel and lodging expenses for the successful candidate. Completed applications
must be received by 11:00 p.m. EST Friday, March 21, 2014
. If you have any questions or need more information, please contact Janet Ann Hedin at email@example.com
or at 517-432-6957.
