If so, the LLNE Public Relations Committee wants to hear from you. In an effort to publicize member accomplishments & encourage new scholarship, the committee has compiled a bibliography of LLNE member publications and presentations. The bib will be posted to the LLNE website and featured at the events table at the AALL meeting in New Orleans. We’ll be adding new entries to the 2006 bibliography. If your works were included in earlier editions, you only need to send new work that was published or presented since July 2006. If you don’t have anything to submit this time around, fear not - the bibliography will be updated annually. The submission deadline is Friday, June 15, 2007.

Web 2.0: Insights and Implications for Law Libraries

What's all the buzz about? What exactly is Web 2.0 and what could it mean for you? NELLCO is pleased to sponsor a one-day workshop presented by Greg Tananbaum, Scholarly Communication Guru. The workshop will be held on Tues. June 12, from 9:30am-3:30pm at the Social Law Library in Boston, MA. Registration is open to NELLCO members ($75.00) and non-members ($95.00) alike. Lunch will be served. To register please go to and click on the 'Events' tab.

Greg Tananbaum is a consultant and entrepreneur focusing on activities at the intersection of technology, content, and academia. He has served as the President of The Berkeley Electronic Press, as well as Director of Product Marketing for EndNote. Greg writes a regular column in Against the Grain covering emerging developments in the field of scholarly communication. He has served as an invited speaker at dozens of conferences, including the American Library Association, the Society for Scholarly Publishing, the Association of Professional and Learned Society Publishers, and Online Information UK. He holds a Master's Degree from the London School of Economics and a B.A. from Yale University.

Greg will help workshop participants unpack the Web 2.0 landscape. The presentation will examine where we are in the current scholarly communication landscape, how to best define Web 2.0 within the context of that landscape, how hot button issues like institutional repositories and open access fit into the mix, the limits of Web 2.0 within scholarly communication, the changing role of the library as the Web 2.0 wave crests, some considerations for the library as it is asked to deal with Web 2.0, and what the future (Web 3.0) might hold. Please contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.
