Letter from the Editor

We want to hear from you!

Your contributions and input are what make your ALL-SIS Newsletter a vital and relevant resource for academic law librarians. Your fellow section members want to hear about your library’s special projects; new publications or resources you think law school librarians should know about; and all kinds of issues related to academic law librarianship.

Have you or an ALL-SIS member you know:

  • taken a new position or hired a new librarian?
  • published an article or other work?
  • received an award or promotion?
  • been elected or appointed to an office?
  • celebrated a professional milestone or decided to retire?
  • attended a workshop or conference where you have learned something new?
  • done something noteworthy or “off the beaten track” that you’d like to share?
