This year’s Advocacy Training, “Turning Challenges into Opportunities,” will be held on Saturday, July 23 from 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. at AALL’s Annual Meeting in Philadelphia. As you can see from our agenda, by attending the training you’ll learn about new PACER developments and how to use the service more efficiently, celebrate the progress of AALL’s working groups and hear about the status of the National Inventory of Legal Materials.
If you can attend the Advocacy Training, you’ll be able to choose between two important breakout sessions:
- Breakout Session 1, “Promoting Digital Authentication in Your State,” will give you an opportunity to brainstorm ways to promote digital authentication to state policymakers when NCCUSL’s uniform act is rolled out in your state. Keith Ann Stiverson, AALL Observer to the NCCUSL Drafting Committee on the Authentication and Preservation of State Electronic Legal Materials Act, will lead this session, which will leave you energized and prepared to talk to state officials about the importance of digital authentication.
- Breakout Session 2, “The Future of the FDLP,” will give you the chance to discuss ideas for sustaining the role of law libraries in the program. This interactive and exciting session will be led by current Depository Library Council member Sally Holterhoff.
Thanks to the ongoing support of AALL’s Executive Board, the Advocacy Training is available at no cost to AALL and chapter members. Please email Emily Feldman by June 1 if you would like to attend. We hope to see you there!
