Membership Has Its Privileges – Is It Time to Join a Membership Law Library?

Presented on November 2, 2017, this webinar examines the return on investment of joining a membership law library. These libraries are partners with the information professionals in law firms and corporate legal departments and other organizations, and the attorneys who are their members providing a mix of access to print collections, research services, and electronic resources for the price of membership. MLLs have different membership models, level of service, and dues pricing structures. Presenting this program are the directors of two different kinds of MLLs, a library consultant, and a law firm librarian. WHO SHOULD ATTEND & LEARN OUTCOMES Legal information services managers and law firm administrators interested in cost effective tools and strategies to support the research needs of their organizations through strategic alliances with membership law libraries. They will also learn about the different MLL models and be better equipped to determine which type of MLL best fits their organization’s needs. Membership law library leaders seeking to provide innovative services to their members will learn how to present these services to their members. Attendees will learn about the different models of membership law libraries and the several reasons joining a MLL is a cost effective investment. Several use cases demonstrating the ROI and use of MLL resources will be presented.
