Several members of the Law Library’s staff, as well as staff from other parts of the Library of Congress, are heading up to Philadelphia this weekend to attend the American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) Annual Meeting.  If you’re attending the conference and want to catch the staff in action, you can see them presenting at the following sessions:

In addition, Christine, Robert Newlen, and Roberta Shaffer are presenting at a special session on Saturday on Careers in Federal Law Libraries, which is being co-sponsored by the iSchool at Drexel University and the AALL Federal Law Librarians Caucus.

I see that AALL is making good use of technology for the conference.  The schedule has been set up in a way that allows people to create a profile and register for the different presentations.  You can then see who else is going to be attending a session and connect with people through tools like Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.  For example, Kurt’s profile page shows him going to a range of interesting sessions, such as Library in the Clouds: Cloud Computing and its Impact on Library Services and E-Books and the Future of Legal Publishing.

Several of the Law Library’s bloggers will also be at a Blogger’s Get Together and will be seeking to learn more about blogging at the session called Don’t Just Blog It, Publish It! We’d love to hear your feedback, ideas, and questions about the In Custodia Legis blog if you’re there too!

Some of the staff will be tweeting about the conference as well.  You can follow us on Twitter – @LawLibCongress – and can see what others are saying about the different sessions by checking out the hashtag #AALL11.  There have already been plenty of tweets leading up to the conference by people who are clearly excited to be attending.  I’m sure all of our staff will be learning a lot about the amazing developments in the world of law libraries too!  We’ll give you a bit of a recap of the conference in this blog soon.

Update: Emily Carr will also be presenting at the Legislative Advocacy Training session.
