Collection Development in Academic Law Libraries in the Face of Budget Cuts
This Friday, April 2, on Law Librarian Conversations the topic for discussion is “Collection Development in Academic Law Libraries in the Face of Budget Cuts”. From the description: This week's conversation will focus on collection development in academic law libraries as we face severe budget cuts. How do we balance fiscal responsibility with our responsibility to train new lawyers and support the research mission of our faculties? Should law schools collect materials that are used in law practice? If not, how can law schools properly educate students? What is the role of law firm libraries in training students about tools for legal research? This week's panel will consist of Richard Leiter, Marcia Dority Baker, Mark Estes, Michael Chiorazzi, Margie Maes, Greg Lambert.
The show will air this Friday, April 2, 2010 from 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM Eastern time. You can register to attend the webinar on the CALI website.
