LLNE News!

The new LLNE News is here!

We have some great articles to offer this issue. Our guest columnist this issue is former Philadelphia resident Lisa Junghahn. She has a list of great sights, experiences, and food in the City of Brotherly Love for our AALL meeting. She has also designed a Google maps link for us to find those great places. (Here's the link - read the article too!)

We are also introducing a new column from the public law library perspective. The Head of the Trial Court Libraries of Massachusetts, Marnie Warner, has written great piece on law libraries and access to justice. And our own Stephen Salhany gives us his insight into the victory of the Boston Bruins from a research perspective, of course.

Also, read about all our LLNEers programs at AALL – come out and support their poster sessions, presentations, and round tables!

This issue of the newsletter also continues our regular favorites such as Access Points, Thinking About Technology, and a continuation of the series “Agents for the Books.”

Have a Great Summer and see you in Philadelphia!
