Each Spring, Law Librarians of New England (LLNE) offers a six-week legal research instruction program for librarians in the New England area who would like to learn more about law librarianship. For many years, this unique course has been offering instruction in various legal topics. Participants will gain a greater understanding of the U.S. legal system and will learn how to find Statutes and Case Law, while also learning about Administrative, Transactional and Business Law.

This year’s Legal Instruction class will run from March 14th through April 25th. Class will not be held on April 18th, and one session will be taught online. A description the program is available on the LLNE website. The cost of the six week program is $150 and the deadline to register is March 7th.

Contact Brian Flaherty at bflaherty@nesl.edu for more information.

Following is a link to a Maine State Library Trusted Professionals Survey with the following objective: “…to measure the perceived “trustworthiness” (honest and ethical standards) of librarians and a variety of other professions,” http://digitalmaine.com/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1100&context=msl_docs.

Maine residents responded and one of the key findings was “(a)mong the twenty-two professions included in this research, the top rated in terms of perceived honesty and ethics, are Nurses (81%), followed by Librarians (78%) and Pharmacists (74%) (emphasis added).

Librarians are in good company.   Do not make the mistake and ask the question – do you value our services?

Dare to ask and take pride in a job well done.

The purpose of this post is to provide notice, as required by Article XVI of the Bylaws of the Association of Boston Law Librarians (ABLL), as to proposed changes to be voted on by the membership at its upcoming Business Meeting, scheduled for Wednesday, May18th, from 12:00-2:00 p.m. at the Hampshire House, 84 Beacon Street, Boston, Mass.

It is proposed that the ABLL Bylaws be amended as follows:

  1. Amend Article III, Section 1(a) by adding a second sentence: “The Association may exclude individuals employed by any business selling products or services to or used by members or member libraries.” 
  2. Delete Article III, Section 2, “Vendor Memberships,” and renumber remaining sections as necessary.
  3. Amend Article X, Section 2 by adding “sponsorships, advertising” immediately following “collected from.”   Thus making the sentence read, “Funds may be collected from sponsorships, advertising, the sale of publications, mailing lists or other sources according to guidelines set forth by the Board of Directors and disclosed to the full membership of the Association.”

This Bylaw proposal will be included in an upcoming Ballot which will include the slate of candidates for open Board positions.
