President's Letter - October 2010


The ALLA NZLLA Joint Conference in Melbourne was a great success; the papers covering a range of themes including the impact of social networking on the practice of law and law librarianship, the issue of free online access to law, the future of law reporting, mobile delivery of legal content and the latest developments in online legal research training.  If you wish to learn more, or share your experience of the conference, come along to our Brown Bag Lunch on October 22.  Mawghan Elverd, our 2010 Bursary Recipient, will be providing a report on the conference.

ALLA is conducting a National Membership Survey to collect data that will enable law librarians and information professionals to compare their job and pay with colleagues in other law libraries in the academic, private and public sectors.  I encourage you to complete the survey.

You might already be subscribing to international lists, but I thought this might be worth sharing. I have been subscribing to a daily digest of INT-Law (International Law Librarians list) as well as a daily digest of Lis-Law (UK Law list) and have become aware of new useful resources for law librarians. I have listed them in a separate post.
