We hope those of you who attended AALL 2017 found it useful and rejuvenating. Librarians are more than witnessing change, we’re immersed in it and creating it. Let’s remember 2017 was the 110th annual conference of this organization—a remarkable milestone and testament to the history and staying power of the LIS profession.
Uplifting thoughts following AALL 2017
“With 30 years of library experience and 20 years in law librarianship, I have seen a lot of challenge and change over that time. Yet after attending AALL 2017, I am excited to say that I am as optimistic about our profession today as I was when I wandered into my first firm library. Here’s to embracing change and meaningful reinvention for newer times and newer priorities.”
