About ALL-SIS

The Academic Law Libraries Special Interest Section (ALL-SIS), a unit of the American Association of Law Libraries (AALL)

Marketing & Outreach

Struggling with your library’s outreach? Not sure where to start? Check out the ALL-SIS Marketing & Outreach Toolkit! The Marketing & Outreach Toolkit contains bibliographies (like any good library resource should), information on branding, job descriptions, marketing and outreach plans, marketing tools, resources to enhance your library’s social media presence and user studies. Each subsection within the toolkit offers information on best practices, sample guidelines and examples. It is a go-to resource for anyone hoping to stand on the shoulders of giants to better market the library’s services.

With that said, the only way this resource can continue to remain useful is with contributions from inventive and creative librarians. That includes you! The Library Marketing & Outreach Committee is currently taking submissions to the Toolkit and would love to have your input. Please send submissions to Prano Amjadi at pamjadi@scu.edu.
Access to the Toolkit is available here.

New Beginnings

The AALL website revamp has put the blog front and center. This makes it a great time to recharge the ALL-SIS blog. So welcome back.

You may not know it, but the Social Media Committee has been hard at work planning ways to highlight all the tools ALL-SIS has available to you and all the great work members are doing across the country. One of those projects is the new Submission Form. Submit guest blog posts, spotlights, and even promote events through ALL-SIS social media.* We want to hear from you! Subscribe to the blog to be sure not to miss a post.

*All submissions are subject to review compliance with ALL-SIS social media policy.

Scholarly Interest Survey

Are you interested in resources for research and scholarship? The ALL-SIS Research & Scholarship Committee is conducting a brief, seven-question survey of AALL membership to help us find out more about commonly perceived obstacles to research and scholarship as well as the kinds of support that would assist and promote your projects. The data collected will help us as we develop new ways to encourage your scholarly endeavors.
Please follow this Survey Link to share your thoughts and experience with us.
Thanks in advance and apologies for cross-posting!
