2008 Mid-Year Meeting
Workshop for Law Librarians
June 1 – 4, 2008
Renaissance Cleveland Hotel
Academic law library directors play multiple roles in their institutions. As faculty members, law library directors teach, conduct research, serve on committees and often play a leadership role in law school governance. As scholars, law library directors have contributed to the scholarly dialogue in many fields, not limited to law librarianship. As administrators, they are often responsible for the largest budgetary units in the law school and increasingly have responsibilities for technology and other areas beyond the library.
Throughout the history of the profession, stellar law librarians such as Art Charpentier, Robert C. Berring, Morris Cohen, Francis Farmer, Marian Gallagher, Frederick C. Hicks, Roger Jacobs, Mary Oliver, Miles O. Price, and William R. Roalfe paved the way for their colleagues as professors, scholars and administrators. They set the standards and forged an identity for law librarianship.
