Yes, I know. You just finished on August 14 with your program ideas for the 2001 Annual Meeting in Minneapolis, but it really is time for the Academic Law Libraries Special Interest Section to begin development of program proposals for the 2002 Annual Meeting. The 2002 Annual Meeting is scheduled for Orlando, Florida at the Orange County Convention Center, July 20 - July 24, 2002.
The 2002 ALL-SIS Education Committee needs your help to develop proposals for programs that you believe would be important to your academic and other law library colleagues. Program proposals for the 2002 Annual Meeting will be due in August, 2001, but let's start now so we can have some great proposals to submit to Tory Trotta, chair of the 2002 Annual Meeting Program Committee, and her committee members.
You might think about some of the following questions to generate ideas for a program and/or workshop proposal. What issues concern you? What do you see as some of the important challenges facing academic law libraries, law libraries generally, the library profession, and you personally in the coming years? What are some professional issues that you have faced in the past few years? Would a discussion of these issues benefit other law librarians? Did you attend some programs in Philadelphia or Washington, D.C. that need some follow-up? Or maybe there was a program that you attended and a more in-depth investigation of the issue in a workshop setting might be beneficial?
The 2002 ALL-SIS Education Committee members are:
There are a couple of options. You can develop fully a program yourself and request that the ALL-SIS be a sponsor of your program. You can provide us with an idea, and the committee will develop the program proposal. Contact us and let us know your ideas.
See you in Orlando in July, 2002.-- Timothy L. Coggins, Chair, ALL-SIS Education Committee - 2002
