Programs of Value to Court/Government Law Librarians


"As a solo librarian - I am a law librarian in a busy courthouse law library in Connecticut - I must echo the words of AALL’s president, Joyce Manna Janto: "The best part of the Annual Meeting…was the energy generated by having so many law librarians under one roof." The opportunity to talk with other law librarians from all over the country convinced me that, regardless of library type, we all share a common commitment to providing our library patrons the best possible access to the law. The face-to-face contact - the human connection - was truly my favorite part of the conference. However, the concrete information that I took away from attending the conference programs was quite significant."

- Roseann Canny, Law Library at Rockville
