It seems appropriate that on National Library Week, two of your Barry Law Librarians, Whitney Curtis (Associate Director and Head of Public Services) and Louis Rosen (Reference Librarian) are presenting at the SEAALL Annual Meeting in Nashville, Tennessee, this coming Saturday, April 14th. Their program, co-presented with former Barry Law Librarian Elizabeth Outler, is titled “How to Be Agents of Hope and Change: Empowering Discovery, Taking Control.”
SEAALL is the Southeastern Chapter of the American Association of Law Libraries, arguably the largest and most involved regional chapter of our major law librarian organization, AALL. Any students who are interested in careers in law librarianship, come talk to our librarians about getting involved in SEAALL and AALL.
Also, Louis Rosen was recently elected Vice President/President-Elect of SEAALL for 2018-2019, which means he will go on to serve as President for 2019-2020.
This whole week is National Library Week. According to the American Library Association, “First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support. All types of libraries – school, public, academic and special – participate.”
