Do you have any legal instructional materials, guides, presentations, assignments, exams? Why not consider sharing them with your colleagues through the RIPS-SIS Teach-In Resource Kit or the ALL-SIS Legal Research Sourcebook.
ALL-SIS and RIP-SIS, two long-standing AALL special interest sections, have joined together to recruit submissions of legal research training and instructional materials. The RIPS sponsored National Legal Research Teach-In campaign has provided the popular Teach-In Resource Kit for many years as a print publication designed to support the instructional activities of law librarians. It is published annually in conjunction with National Library Week each April. And now ALL-SIS has established its ground-breaking Legal Research Sourcebook as an electronic database of any and all legal research instructional materials that AALL members wish to submit.
How can you play a part in this exciting new partnership? Get involved by sharing your comments, suggestions - and materials! Teach In/Sourcebook submissions are currently being accepted. You can contact or send submissions as email attachments to any of the people listed below. Any document format that can be attached to email is acceptable.
We will accept most any instructional materials that you care to offer:
shows, basic instructional guides, examinations and guided quizzes, crossword puzzles and trivia quizzes. And we will recommend whether your materials are suitable for publication in the Teach-In Kit or the Sourcebook database - or both! So, you have the choice of contributing to both publications through a single submission process.
Both special interest sections will maintain these unique resources to provide the best legal research materials to AALL members. In order to solicit the widest range of submissions possible for both sources, RIPS and ALL-SIS decided to partner in their public relations efforts. Now your legal research materials can go the extra mile by supporting two resources at the same time!
We welcome your ideas and suggestions and encourage you to contact us to discuss your contributions to or comments about this exciting new partnership.

Chair, RIPS-SIS Teach-In Committee
