The Conference before the Conference (AALL 2017 Austin)
Hi lawbrarians! Rachel Purcell here, member of the Academic Law Libraries New Law Librarians (ALL-NEW) Committee. As our committee chair, Marty Witt explained in a previous post, each month a member of ALL-NEW will be blogging helpful info for those attending our AALL Annual Conference in Austin, TX. Last post, Marty provided a list of grants gathered from numerous sources in the law librarian world that will help you get to the AALL conference this July. Look below for more information on applications and deadlines.
Once you’ve made the decision to go, you’ve got to decide if you’re doing the conference before the conference. Educational programs begin Sunday July 16, but preconference workshops offer the opportunity to take a deeper dive into a specific topic. The complete conference schedule can be viewed at https://eventmobi.com/aall2017/. All information regarding registration fees and dates can be viewed at AALL Annual Conference – Registration. Attendees can sign up for preconference workshops when they register for the main conference, but be aware that advance registration by June 19 is required for all preconference workshops and CONELL (Conference of Newer Law Librarians). Space is limited so apply now!
