Live Interview Series: So, You Wanna Change Library Types?


Wednesday, January 15, 2020 (12pm - 12:30pm US/Central)


DESCRIPTION


Law librarians find exciting and rewarding careers in a wide variety of organizations and institutions. However, many law librarians tend to stick to the same kind of institution or library for their entire career. Have you ever wondered what it might be like to trade in the law students and provide support for a judge or research instruction for a partner at a law firm? Have you ever just wondered about making a change? If so, join us for the third installment of the “So You Wanna…” Interview series – “So You Wanna Change Library Types?” In this 30-minute live video interview, C.J. Pipins will facilitate a conversation with Michelle Hook Dewey and Andrea Alexander who each moved from academic law libraries. Andrea is currently a law librarian with the U.S. Courts, and Michelle is with the law firm BakerHostetler. We will talk about expected as well as unexpected challenges, and surprises associated with moving to a new kind of law library.

This series is brought to you by the Professional Engagement, Growth & Advancement SIS and the AALL Continuing Professional Education Committee.
