As academic librarians, we do not have access to these various systems (vendors have been reluctant to give demo ...more »

Library Services for Communities Living in Fear

In 2015, Baltimore experienced massive protests against police brutality and in reaction to the death of 25-years old Freddie Gray. Some of these protests turned violent and the despair and frustration of our communities were evident all across the city. Despite the unrest and riots, Enoch Pratt Free Library and its then-CEO, Carla Hayden (our current Librarian of Congress) decided to keep the library open. Similar to ...more »

Teaching law practice technology/management classes

More and more librarians are being called upon to teach law practice management and/or law practice technology courses. It is so rampant that a caucus has been created on this topic. It would be great for a session or sessions to focus on: curriculum design, helpful vendors, what has worked/not worked at other schools, and what the firms want new associates to know with regards to technology.

This program would ...more »

Preventing plagiarism

Plagiarism is a fine line in law schools. We tell students not to plagiarize while also showing them forms and templates and ignoring real world reuse of materials. How do we 1) Teach students about plagiarism in an effective way, and 2) explain the difference between academia and real world practices?

You Can Use Fair Use!

At first glance, the fair use exception in copyright can seem too vague to rely upon, and detailed guidelines have been articulated through caselaw. However, there are many common and valuable uses that have consistently been found to fall under fair use, and organizations have developed suggested practices for making strong cases for fair use. This session will demystify fair use and give you concrete guidance for tailoring ...more »
