CONTENT, COLLABORATION, CURATION, INNOVATION
Register now to attend the first annual NELLCO Symposium! The Symposium will be held March 12-13 at the Albany Law School in Albany, NY.
This interactive event consists of two full days, with the first day dedicated to Content and Collaboration. Industry partners and law librarians will have the opportunity for robust exchanges in small classroom settings. Companies actively involved with the law library community will have the opportunity to provide product training, demo new products, host focus groups, or offer content sessions of interest.
Also on day one, NELLCO Interest Groups, including Acquisitions, Interlibrary Loan, IT, and Reference, will hold brief meetings to explore and expand on their collaboration efforts. Holding Interest Group meetings during this event will allow attendees to participate in more than one interest group without travelling to many different locations throughout the year.
Day two offers a series of hour long content sessions and workshops aligned with the remaining themes: Curation and Innovation. Some of the sessions on day two will include Reverse Strategic Planning, an innovative technique for examining your library's infrastructure, and Twitter 101, during which participants will set up their own Twitter account, generate their first tweet, and learn how and whom to follow (@nellcoinc!). Theresa McCue will offer sessions throughout the day on using the new NELLCO website for trials, acquisitions and renewals. We'll also offer sessions on managing a budget, managing your time, and improving your effectiveness as a speaker.
The NELLCO Symposium promises lively interaction between law librarians and content providers in an informal and collegial environment. In addition to the excellent networking opportunities, a special ticketed evening event will be held at the New York State Museum, Library and Archives.
Please plan to join us here in March and be part of the success of this new event!
