Resources From The Conference Of Law Library Educators

The American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) recently held its annual meeting & conference in Seattle. Although I could not attend this year, there have been numerous emails discussing the events of the meeting.

Looking at the competencies for law librarianship and the competencies for information professionals is enlightening. The competencies for information professionals are not as specific. The competencies for information professionals may be the wave of the future, especially considering that some former library science programs are now information science programs that lean more toward information professionals. 

This website is a wonderful aggregator of law librarianship material. It's a hidden gem that more people should be aware of.
