Status and the Law Library

Are the majority of academic law library directors still faculty members with tenure in accordance with ABA Standard

603(d)? What about most reference librarians working in academic law libraries? To what extent are they integrated with the faculty and what kind of security do they possess? Do technological and structural changes mean a bleak future for the status of academic law librarians or do they necessitate further integration with the doctrinal faculty? This panel discussion, featuring panelists who have written on various aspects of the issue in the last several years, aims not only to orient attendees on the state of status in the academic law library, but to envision what the future holds, especially from a Millennial point of view.
