The Academic SIS will sponsor four programs, one workshop, and one plenary session at the 2002 Annual Meeting in Orlando. Join your colleagues to learn about teaching, privacy and civil liberties in this security conscious world, e-reference, budgets, public services/technical services interaction, and moving from one type of law library to another type of library.

Here's the schedule for workshops and programs sponsored by the Academic Law Libraries SIS at the Annual Meeting.

Saturday, July 20:  Workshop - "Inverting the Classroom"

David Sobel is the General Counsel of the Electronic Privacy Information Center. He will address "Electronic Surveillance:  Recent Legal Developments."
