SNELLA at the Connecticut Library Assn Conference

SNELLA will, as in the past, be an exhibitor at the 2014 Connecticut Library Association Annual Conference scheduled for April 28-29 in Cromwell.  Please attend if you’re able. Stop by and visit the SNELLA booth and also enjoy a great education program on the Litchfield Law School, presented by Jason Eiseman and Jordan Jefferson from Yale Law Library and Linda Hocking of the Litchfield Historical Society

Monday, April 28 AFTERNOON
Hacking the Litchfield Law School

In 1774, Tapping Reeve’s first law student arrived in Litchfield, Connecticut, launching an institution that educated vice presidents, Supreme Court justices, senators, congressmen and governors. Yet its influence on American law is largely left unstudied. Join Linda Hocking of the Litchfield Historical Society and Jason Eiseman and Jordan Jefferson of the Yale Law School Library as they discuss how the Litchfield Notebooks Project has created challenges and opportunities in the areas of preservation, research, and technology and provided access to materials that will enable researchers to develop new understanding of the role of early legal education. Sponsored by the CBA Law Libraries section

Additional details about the conference, including a complete description of all events and activities, are available at:
