NEW 2015 Faculty Services Toolkit – Online Now!

I am pleased to announce that an updated Faculty Services Toolkit is now online! The updated toolkit is brought to you by the hard work of the very dedicated 2014-2015 ALL-SIS Faculty Services Committee. I’d like to also give a special thanks to the ALL-SIS webmaster, Creighton Miller, who helped tremendously with embedding documents and webpages.

You can find the toolkit here (login required). Please take a look! We welcome feedback and would love to hear what you find useful or what you would like to see in future toolkit updates.

Thanks and happy holidays!

Update: Sourcebook for Teaching Legal Research

I am  pleased to announce that the ALL-SIS Sourcebook for Teaching Legal Research has now been migrated to the new AALLNET website. This means that AALL members will be able to access the Sourcebook using their personal AALL login credentials–you will no longer need to use a special username and password combination. You’ll find a link to the Sourcebook listed under the “Popular Resources” tab on the main ALL-SIS website (

At this point, all ALL-SIS website content has been migrated and is available through the AALLNET portal.

As always, please feel free to contact me with any problems or concerns related to the ALL-SIS website.

Announcing the New Student Services Toolkit

The ALL-SIS Student Services Committee is pleased to announce that the new Student Services Toolkit is now available online:

The Toolkit was created due to the efforts of the 2012-2013 Student Services committee, led by Morgan Stoddard, and to the current committee.
