TRICALL is a professional development opportunity for court and agency law librarians to enhance their research instruction skills in a changing legal environment. Through a variety of interactive, participatory and problem-solving sessions, conference attendees will learn about effective research instruction. The conference intends to:

  • Use a model to design a customized training program.
  • Identify trends as they affect training.
  • Assess user needs and address learning styles.
  • Enhance presentation skills.
  • Apply effective marketing and communication techniques.
  • Create evaluation tools.

LexisNexis™ worked with an advisory council of court and agency law librarians to develop the curriculum for the conference. These council members include Shirley David of the Sacramento County Public Law Library, David Lockwood of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, Terry Long of the Virginia State Law Library and Regina Smith of the Jenkins Law Library.
