Date/Time: Tue, Jul 18 2:30pm - 3:30pm
Location/Room: ACC-Room 9ABC
Official AALL Program Listing

One of the most attractive features of the Cool Tools Café, for both the presenters and attendees, is the casual atmosphere. Gathering in small groups, participants will learn about emerging or existing technologies from librarians who have implemented these technologies in their own libraries. This more intimate setting allows for the opportunity to discuss why the technologies are useful, how they work, and how they can be implemented. Tools for legal research, collaboration, marketing services, instruction, productivity, citation, presentation, and website functionality are examples of past demonstrations. The variety of the demonstrations epitomizes the dynamic role of today’s legal information professional.


  1. Participants will learn about existing or emerging technologies.
  2. Participants will have the opportunity to interact with the presenters in small group settings.
  3. Participants will learn how to implement the technology in their home library.

Who Should Attend: Individuals from all types of law library settings, whether tech savvy or beginners
