Are you new to academic law librarianship? Are you puzzled by some of the jargon and acronyms your colleagues toss about? Are you a veteran of the academic endeavor, but sometimes still unclear on who's who or what's what? Do you work in another type of law library and want to know more about academia? If so, this program is for you!
Convocation for Newer Academic Law Librarians -CONALL for short- is intended to clear up the mysteries of academic law libraries, law schools, and their universities. Come with Alice as she explores LawLibraryLand, with the aid of her guide, the White Rabbit. Meet Dean Queen, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, and other exotic inhabitants of the realm.
Following Alice's adventures, participants will have ample opportunity to ask questions of the CONALL Committee and the inhabitants of LawLibraryLand. Finding your way around the law school can be confusing, and sometimes you don't want to ask questions of your colleagues. Ask them here! The goal of the program is to make academic law librarianship more understandable to beginners and experienced librarians alike.
The leadership of the Academic SIS will be introduced, and the editors of many law librarianship publications will be available to informally answer questions about publishing and scholarship.
NOTE: This program is not a substitute for CONELL, AALL's long-standing orientation for newer law librarians scheduled for Saturday, July 15. There will be little, if any, overlap between the two programs. Those new to law librarianship can benefit from both programs.
