Academic law librarians stand to benefit from a number of the projects taken on by the ALL-SIS Student Services Committee this year. The projects include coordinating an online discussion, collecting survey data, and creating a new website to share information about academic law library student services. The committee is also presenting at the Annual Meeting in Philadelphia a program on developing and using patron satisfaction surveys, program slot J-1.

The committee is sharing information among law librarians in a couple of ways. It recently coordinated an online discussion around the question of how academic law libraries are marketing services for students. It has also solicited libraries for patron satisfaction surveys. The surveys gathered will be shared on the ALL-SIS website to help librarians identify the services that will be of the best benefit to their users.

The committee is planning new content for the ALL-SIS site with information about how libraries are supporting student organizations, moot court students, and clinical programs. The committee is also determining the types of library services offered to LLM and SJD students, with the plan of putting those ideas on the website as well.
