New Law Librarians' Institute

CALL/ACBD is holding a New Law Librarians' Institute again this year, reports the ELLA Blog. It will be held May 27 to June 1, and by all accounts, this is a fantastic opportunity for library professionals who are new to the legal field to get hands-on, in-depth experience that will relate directly to their work in law libraries.

To hear what some of last year's participants thought of the institute, see Karen Sawatzky's post on Slaw. I had the pleasure of chatting with Allan Chan (one of the participants that Karen mentions) shortly after his return from the institute last summer, and he was quite enthusiastic about the experience, and very pleased that he'd attended.

Although final details of the 2012 institute have not yet been released, you can check out last year's program for an idea of what sorts of topics are addressed. See also Ted Tjaden's recap of the event on Slaw. If you're interested in attending this year's institute, consider applying for a grant through CALL's Education Reserve Fund.

Kudos to CALL/ACBD for offering this most helpful program!
