Newer Law Librarians: Register for CONELL Now!
What is CONELL?
The Conference of Newer Law Librarians (CONELL) is held every year at the American Association of Law Libraries Annual Meeting and Conference. CONELL welcomes newer members of the profession to the organization, introduces them to the Association and its leaders, and provides a setting for newer members to become acquainted with each other. Participants have an opportunity to talk with representatives from AALL’s many Committees and Special Interest Sections to find out firsthand how to get involved and enjoy the benefits of Association membership. CONELL offers a chance to learn about the Association while meeting new people and having some fun.
The 2004 CONELL Program
This year, CONELL will be held on Saturday, July 10 from 7:30 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. The morning features presentations from experienced AALL members, and open sessions with AALL experts from various areas of law librarianship and with chapter, SIS and committee representatives.
After lunch in the Sheraton Boston Hotel, the afternoon will be devoted to a guided tour of Boston, including Beacon Hill, Back Bay, and the Waterfront. Participants will be able to walk into the North End, Boston’s famous Italian neighborhood, and visit the Old North Church, where the lanterns were hung to signal the beginning of Paul Revere’s ride.
For the first time this year, CONELL will sponsor “Dutch Treat Dinners” at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, July 9. These dinners will give CONELL participants a chance to meet each other and members of the Mentoring Committee before the beginning of the official conference.
