Strategic Librarian

Using strategy to develop the law firm library.

AALL 2009 Annual Meeting

While the meeting actually started last evening with the opening reception at the Library of Congress, today the programs,committee &  SIS meetings, and exhibits start or have already started.  I’m exhibiting this year which will be new for me – if you are here at the conference, stop by and say hello.

I also exhibited at the SLA meeting and found that I couldn’t make it to very many programs.  I’m hoping to get to a few here.  There are so many to choose from.  Today’s programs that caught my eye are:

  • A-1 Making Your ILS Web 2.0 Happy
  • A-2 Beyond Copyright? How License Agreements and Digital Rights Management Pose Challenges to Fair Use and the Provision of Electronic or Media Services
  • A-6 Here Today, Gone Tomorrow? The Future of Print Periodicals in Law Libraries
  • B-2 Success for the Future: Creating and Implementing a Library Succession Plan
  • PLL-SIS Program Nuts and Bolts of Competitive Intelligence: CI in the Small Firm Environment
  • C-3 Latest Trends in Library Automation:Building Creative and Inspiring Discovery Platforms
  • C-6 Running a Business: Practical MBA Solutions for Your Library
  • CS-SIS Hot Topic Blogger Connie Crosby on Why Why Librarians  Should Care About Emerging Technologies

Now I have to pick the one that I get to leave the booth to attend.  Tough decision!  I’ll report later on whatever I learn.

Happy conferencing!
