W1F: Producing Library Videos: A Hands-On Experience

Target Audience: Librarians interested in producing instructional and marketing videos

Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will learn how to produce short, quality videos, by writing, shooting, and editing a simple story.
2. Participants will be able to identify appropriate video production equipment options for various budgets and skill levels.

Communicating through video is an increasingly popular medium for education and training. Instructional videos provide patrons the flexibility to learn about library resources at their convenience. Producing videos can save library staff time by documenting research tasks and library tours in a medium that can be repeated over and over again for individuals. A trend among law librarians is increased discussion of adopting do-it-yourself approaches to creating videos for their institutions. This is because the cost of hiring professional filmmakers to create dynamic videos is usually prohibitively expensive given typical library budgets. The goal of this workshop is to provide practical, hands-on experience to enable law librarians to write, shoot, and edit informative videos for the benefit of their patrons and clients. A professional filmmaker will provide instruction and guidance as participants test their new skills throughout the workshop. The librarian speakers will share their experiences as novice filmmakers with no production budget. While some familiarity and comfort with digital cameras and creative software programs will be helpful prior to the workshop, participants will receive an introduction to all video production tools along the way.

W2: Putting the 'M' in ERM: Best Practices in Electronic Resources Management

This workshop has reached capacity.

Target Audience: Library directors, electronic resources librarians and others seeking to streamline and improve the overall management of electronic resources

Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be prepared to list five best practices for the management of electronic resources.
2. Participants will be able to identify key positions needed to manage electronic resources.

Electronic resources present managers with distinct challenges, including personnel, workflow, licensing, and marketing issues. A central tool for handling these challenges is an effective management program that supports and maintains both expanding electronic collections and diminishing print collections. Does your library use a complex variety of staff roles and interactions to manage electronic resources? This workshop will explore best practices for managing electronic resources. Panelists will address administrative and technical issues including: selection, access, workflow analysis, licensing options, ERM vendors, training, marketing, and staffing. Attendees will participate in the review of ERM tasks and design job descriptions for ERM staff. Learn to manage electronic resources and not allow them to manage you! A pre-workshop list of selected readings will be available to attendees.

Legislative Advocacy Training 2011: Turning Challenges into Opportunities

In these difficult economic times, it’s more important than ever before to develop skills to effectively prove your value to stakeholders and advocate for law libraries and the issues that impact our profession.

As you can see from our agenda, this year’s Advocacy Training will give you a unique opportunity to hear from an official at the Administrative Office of the United States Courts on new PACER functionalities that will help you find court information more efficiently. Leslie Street and Government Relations Committee member Julie Kimbrough will then share tips on creating useful PACER research guides and developing popular PACER training programs.

After this practical presentation, 2010-2011 Electronic Legal Information Access & Citation Committee Chair Timothy Coggins and AALL Advocacy Communications Assistant Emily Feldman will lead an exciting discussion of AALL’s involvement in the National Inventory of Legal Materials, celebrating the significant contributions of AALL’s Federal and State Working Groups during the past year. We’ll present findings from the preliminary data from the inventory and draw initial conclusions.  We’ll also summarize the most recent developments regarding NCCUSL’s uniform act, Authentication and Preservation of State Electronic Legal Materials Act, in preparation for one of the breakout sessions.

Participants will then choose between two important breakout sessions: the first on creative ways to promote digital authentication to state policymakers when NCCUSL’s uniform act is rolled out in your state; and the second to brainstorm ideas on how to sustain the role of law libraries in the Federal Depository Library Program.

To register for the Advocacy Training, which is sponsored by the Government Relations Office and Government Relations Committee and available at no cost to our members, please contact Advocacy Communications Assistant Emily Feldman by June 17.

W3: Digitizing Government Information: How to Plan and Conduct a Digitization Project in Your Library

Target Audience: Any library that wants to digitize government information in their collections, but doesn't know how to do it

Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be equipped to plan and manage a digitization project in their library.
2. Participants will understand digitization methods and techniques.

This program is also co-sponsored by Legal Information Preservation Alliance (LIPA). Government information is a significant element of law library collections. An increasing amount of it is 'born digital'. Many libraries have tangible collections they would like to digitize in order to market, and extend the use of those collections. Other libraries may wish to capture born digital government information that may not be preserved by government agencies. Many law libraries are beginning to think about planning digitization projects, but don't know exactly how to go about it. This workshop will give participants the knowledge that they need to plan and execute a digitization project. This workshop will NOT address intellectual property rights. It will be assumed that the digitizing institution has permission to digitize the collections.

Separate registration fees

AALL Members: $165.00
Nonmembers: $250.00

Registration fee includes: program, handouts continental breakfast and afternoon refreshments.

W4: Researching and Understanding European Union Law

Target Audience: Law librarians in all settings looking for EU research guidance.

Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will identify the current law-related functions and documentation of the institutions and organizations of the European Union.
2. Participants will identify and execute the best strategies for researching legal issues involving the European Union.

The European Union, established in 1951, has expanded its scope and responsibilities greatly over the years. The policies, laws and actions of the EU affect not just its 27 member countries, but due to its economic power, the entire globe. Following the passage of the Treaty of Lisbon in 2009, the EU's powers and competencies will expand even further in the coming years. To provide law librarians the necessary information and tools to keep up with these changes, this workshop will offer a brief overview of the legal history of the European Union and show the research tools that are provided by the EU, namely EurLex, the online law portal of the EU, N-lex and other tools for locating the national law of Member States, and PreLex, for tracking legislative proposals. Further presentation will give an overview on trade relations/corporate law, religious freedom and energy and environment in the European Union. Engaging speakers will enable law librarians to approach EU research tasks systematically and successfully.
