Brown Bag Lunch Event on November 18, 2015

The SNELLA Education Committee is currently planning a “Brown Bag” Event to discuss marketing efforts in law libraries. We are seeking member and non-member volunteers to attend and briefly discuss marketing in their law library.

The event will be held at the Yale Law School on Wednesday, November 18, 2015 from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm. We are hoping to have several presenters discuss how they market themselves to their organization and patrons. We will then have some time for discussion and questions. There will also be an optional tour of the Yale Law Library for any interested attendees.

We currently have two volunteers; an academic law librarian and a Judicial Branch law librarian. We would welcome any additional volunteers, especially a law firm or corporation librarian.

Please contact Bonnie Gallagher at 860-343-6560 or at if you are interested in speaking at this SNELLA event, or  if you have contact information for anyone outside of SNELLA who may be interested.

For members who are interested in attending, the final details will be sent out shortly with an RSVP date and presenter information.
