The Education Committee urges you to attend the four programs being sponsored at the Philadelphia Annual Conference by ALL-SIS:
At 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, we offer "Teaching Advanced Legal Research: Law Librarians as 'Leaders of the Pack.'" Ruth Levor and Stephen Sepinuck will discuss ways to create innovative lesson plans and interesting and effective research exercises for advanced legal research classes.
Later, at 2:15 p.m. on Sunday, Kristen Cheney, Donald Dunn, and Richard Hurt will provide new directors and middle managers with an overview of the reinspection process and offer strategies for readying the library for reaccreditation in "The ABA Reaccreditation Visit: Process and Preparation."
"Train Your Staff for the Institution as Well as the Job: The Gateway to a More Knowledgeable Staff" is our Monday program. At 4:00 p.m., Paul George, Phyllis Askey, and Thea Robinson will show how the staff training model from the Caterpillar corporation might improve training in libraries by giving the staff member a better idea of how he or she fits into "the big picture" of the library and law school.
Our final program, "Gateway to Career Renewal: Paths for the Experienced Librarian," will occur Tuesday at 3:45 p.m. Roger Jacobs, Joan Howland, William Lindberg, and Rosemary Richardson will explore how experienced librarians can retain enthusiasm and drive in their careers even after they've already "done it all."
Thanks go to Education Committee members Paul George, James Duggan, and Patricia Cervenka for giving us this fine variety of programs in the areas of leadership, management, and resources. Support them with your attendance!
