May is typically the beginning of the season for conferences that law librarians attend, kicking off with the CALL/ACBD conference. This year, we are attending virtually, and you are invited to our events!
You may consider yourself a law librarian, knowledge manager, legal researcher, legal information provider, legal technology developer, legal information specialist or user, or not – it doesn’t matter to us – you are welcome to join in. You may be a member of CALL or a member of a law library sister association, or not – regardless of whether you paid your modest CALL/ACBD membership fee for 2020 – you are welcome to our virtual conference series.
Visit the Canadian Association of Law Libraries virtual conference site: https://www.callacbd.ca/2020-Virtual-Conference to see the program offerings and register for the conference. Our 2020 educational conference is being offered for no fee whatsoever.
Our virtual conference kicks off next week with some amazing speakers and carry’s on through to June 12. There will be opportunities to connect with legal information partners and to share some social time together as well.
