The Canadian Association of Law Libraries is holding its Annual Conference in Montréal May 5-8, 2013. This post is a shameless suggestion to attend Librarian: a multi-faceted professional. Full disclosure, I am proud to be a member of the CALL Executive Board.

Starting with a Pre-Conference Workshop on Saturday, May 4 titled Leading Teams Through Change, lead by Terri Tomchyshyn, the conference program has many interesting offerings.

I am looking forward to the session by Monique Stam, Project Manager, Centre d’accès à l’information juridique (CAIJ), Damien Lefebvre, Co-President, Digital Intelligence, and Anastasia Simitsis, User Experience Director, Digital Intelligence titled Please Don’t Make Me Think: User Testing a Faceted Search Engine. I am also excited for the Technology Project Management: Complexities and Challenges session that will be offered in French (with simultaneous English translation).

The conference has sessions that will be of particular interest to lawyers. One example is the panel titled The Future of Articlilng in Canada shared by Joanne Clarfield Schaefer, National Director of professional development and student programs, Bennett Jones
Kim Clarke, Associate Vice-Provost (LCR), Research & Director, Bennett Jones Law Library, University of Calgary
Professor Vern Krishna, Full Professor, Executrive Director CGA Tax Research Centre.

I encourage you to check out the conference program and take advantage of the early bird rate and the special hotel rates offered by the Sheraton Centre Montreal to visit Montreal and hang out with law librarians and legal information vendors.
