AALL eBriefing / New AALL eLearning Platform & Self-Paced Course


Explore elearning.aallnet.org

As part of AALL’s strategic goal to expand your access to professional growth opportunities, we are excited to announce the new AALL eLearning platform—a first for the Association. AALL strongly believes that you should have flexibility in how you learn. After evaluating a number of platforms, AALL selected a learning management system (LMS) that provides you with this flexibility to access past, current, and future education opportunities in one place.

In addition to the platform, AALL has worked with member subject matter experts (SMEs) in all library types as well as with a course designer to create the first AALL self-paced course, “Introduction to Law Library Budgets.”

Browse the eLearning platform by type of content or by AALL’s Body of Knowledge domains or use the keyword search to look for specific content. You may even adjust your interest categories to see recommended content based on your preferences. Your personal dashboard is the place where you may access all programs/webinars/coffee chats that you registered for. AALL Annual Meeting recordings from the 2020 virtual conference are also now available on the platform.

The eLearning platform uses single sign-on, which means you use your current AALL credentials for AALLNET to log in. We are so excited for you to dive in and explore—the first 20 people to access content on the eLearning platform will receive a special surprise from AALL. We are also offering a quick overview of the site tomorrow (Tuesday), December 15 at 1:00 p.m. CST. If you cannot join us then, the recording will be available for you to access at a later time.


AALL’s first self-paced course—”Introduction to Law Library Budgets“—is available for $99 for members and $149 for nonmembers. When we surveyed you last year, budgeting was among the most requested topics. This course has been developed by SMEs who are your colleagues and fellow members. It will introduce law library professionals to the budgeting process and prepare you to ask informed questions about funding, allocations, and how the library supports its strategic goals.

This course will help you address important issues such as:

  • Identifying and managing competing priorities
  • Explaining day-to-day operations
  • Connecting financial resources to meet goals

To register for the budgeting course or to access additional content, visit the AALL eLearning platform.
