Reminder: AALL State Advocacy Webinar Set for Tomorrow, March 20th
From the webinar statement:
In the midst of a rapidly changing technological environment, state budget cuts that threaten the very existence of public law libraries, and a growing number of state governments looking to eliminate print legal resources in favor of online-only, now is a critical time for law librarians to speak up for the important issues that affect the profession. Join this free webinar to learn practical skills and strategies to make a difference in your state. You’ll hear the latest and most effective ways to influence decision-makers, learn how the Southern New England Law Librarians Association (SNELLA) and AALL mobilized to save Connecticut’s courthouse law libraries from closure, and come away prepared to advocate for the enactment of the Uniform Electronic Legal Material Act (UELMA) to ensure authentication and preservation of electronic legal material in your state.
- Participants will be able to identify AALL’s policy priorities at the state level.
- Participants will learn practical skills to influence decision-makers.
The one hour webinar is free to all AALL members and chapter members. To register, go here.
