Presentation and Brainstorming Session about Legal Link – April 19, 2016

Please join us on Tuesday, April 19, 2016 for a presentation and brainstorming session about Legal Link, a service designed by the Law Librarians of New England (LLNE). The details for this event are below. 

Legal Link is a service designed for public librarians to serve as a “tool kit” of tips, links, and advice on helping patrons with legal research. Joshua LaPorte of the UCONN Law School Library and Mike VanderHeijden of the Yale Law School Library would like to share this project with us and discuss possible additions to the service based on our experiences as law librarians.

Please email by Monday, April 18, 2016 if you plan on attending.

We hope to see you there!
