Join Us In Seattle
The AALL Academic Libraries Special Interest Section has many fun and engaging
activities planned during the upcoming AALL Annual Conference in Seattle. Attending
one of these events is a sure way to meet new colleagues or catch up on the
news with old friends. Be sure to join us during the following events:
- Academic SIS Reception
Tuesday July 15, 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.
- The ALL-SIS Reception, sponsored by Lexis/Nexis, will be held on Tuesday,
July 15, from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. The reception will be held at Sullivan Hall,
Seattle University Law School. Built in 1999, the Law School is located on
the Seattle University campus, which is only a short distance (8-9 blocks)
from the Washington State Convention and Trade Center (convention location).
This reception serves as a venue to honor our award recipients, as well as
our newer academic law librarians who have attended CONALL (Conference of
Newer Academic Law Librarians) and their mentors. Bus transportation will
be provided. During the reception, attendees will have the opportunity to view at their
leisure the Sullivan Hall Art Collection, housed throughout the law school.
This growing collection, described as "one of the most eclectic and exciting
exhibitions of contemporary art in Seattle," includes paintings, mixed
media, works on paper, woven tapestries and sculptures in marble, bronze,
and glass. There really will be something for just about everybody, whether it's exploring
the library, touring the building or sitting on the law school's patio visiting
with friends and listening to the melodic renditions of one of the northwest's
preeminent jazz/blues artists.
- Academic SIS Director’s Breakfast
Tuesday July 15, 7:00 - 8:30 a.m.
- The ALL-SIS Director’s Breakfast, sponsored by West Publishing will
be held on Tuesday, July 15 from 7:00 - 8:45 a.m. The breakfast will be held
at the Sheraton-West Ballroom(A).
- CONELL Marketplace
Saturday July 12, 11:00 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.
- The CONELL Marketplace is a chance for the AALL Special Interest Sections
and Chapters to welcome new members and answer any questions about the many
sections and chapters of AALL. The CONELL Marketplace provides an excellent
opportunity for new law librarians to learn how they can become involved in
AALL. The CONELL Marketplace will be held on Saturday July 12th from 11:15
a.m. to 12: 15 p.m. at the Washington State Convention Center.
Hope to see you in Seattle.
