Show Notes

Ann-Marie Melvie - CALL President and librarian for the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal
Femi Cadmus - AALL President and Associate Dean and Research Professor at Duke Law, Director of Goodson Law Library

Co-host: Alan Kilpatrick, Reference Librarian at the Law Society of Saskatchewan

Highlights:

  • the role of annual conferences to law library associations
  • Nothing like being face-to-face and AALL surveys have shown that networking is recognized as one of the greatest benefits
  • a welcoming community for new law librarians and information professionals, with special interest groups and special designed to help bring people into the community
  • Mentorship, collaboration and cross-association engagement
  • "Law librarian" is one of many expanding roles for legal information professionals, so who should belong to CALL / AALL?  (hint: any professional in the KM, legal information, legal tech and legal scholarship space will find value)
