Highlights from December 2012-January 2013 ALLUNY Newsletter
The December 2012-January 2013 issue of ALLUNY Newsletter contains some items of general interest. One article discusses implementing QR codes in libraries. While this topic has been discussed elsewhere, this piece focuses on implementation and provides a useful guide to the steps that should be taken when adding QR codes to library signage and documents. Two reports on the most recent ALLUNY meeting presentations will serve as good recaps for interested librarians who could not attend.

Highlights from Winter 2013 CALL Bulletin
The Winter 2013 issue of the CALL Bulletin has been posted by the Chicago Association of Law Libraries. This issue contains a number of interesting articles, including a piece on the prospects of the Uniform Electronic Legal Materials Act being passed in Illinois. Also notable are the reports of presentations delivered at the most recent Law Via the Internet, AALL, International Federation of Library Associations, and International Association of Law Libraries conferences. The IFLA and IALL reports are especially interesting because they describe a number of international law resources that I had not heard or thought of recently.

Highlights from MAALL Markings, Volume 22, Issue 1
Volume 22, Issue 1 of MAALL Markings, the publication of the Mid-America Association of Law Libraries, has been released. This issue contains reports of presentations delivered at the MAALL annual meeting. The reports provide a concise overview of what was discussed at the meeting. The post cannot do justice to the wide range of topics covered, so it is worth taking a few minutes to skim through the issue.
