Michele on why she loves the body of knowledge, how she promotes a strong community, and the connections AALL gives her

Michele A. L. Villagran is an Assistant Professor at the School of Information, San José State University in San José, California.

Why did you join AALL?

I was a new law library assistant moving from public librarianship into law librarianship. I wanted to gain skills and network with peers in order to learn more about the profession. I joined as a student because I felt it was an important part of my ongoing professional development. Initially it was about taking advantage of career resources and learning about the profession, and now it is so much more. AALL was, and still is seen as, the premier association to join for legal information professionals.
