Historically, US territories have faced numerous challenges in preserving and providing access to both their foundational and historical legal documents and their current laws- but there are solutions! In this webinar, Aesha Duval (US Virgin Islands Branch Librarian, US Courts for the Third Circuit), Gina Gutierrez (Head of Library Services, Administrative Office of the Court, Commonwealth of Puerto Rico), and Geraldine Cepeda (Compiler of Laws, Supreme Court of Guam and Executive Director/Librarian of the Guam Law Library) will discuss systemic issues and current experiences in preserving and providing access to their territories' legal materials. Victoria Szymczak (Law Library Director, William S. Richardson School of Law, University of Hawaii) will describe a successful academic partnership at the University of Hawaii Law School that can serve as a model for law libraries in other jurisdictions.
