Can't make it to Philly, or decided that the 102 degree heat is too much to attend the AALL conference? You can still get a taste of the conference through the Association's webcasts. I suggest that everyone that is interested with the vendor relations tune in on Monday for the CRIV & Vendor Colloquium discussion (I'll be on that panel!) If you are going, make sure you track me down and say "Hi!"
Here are the instructions.
AALL kicks off its 104th Annual Meeting and Conference in Philadelphia this weekend, and even if you can't be there in person, you can get a sample of each day's offerings. The following programs will be webcast live (please note that all times are Eastern Daylight Time):
- Opening General Session/Keynote Speaker - Sunday, July 24, 10:15-11:45 a.m. (EDT)
- G2: To Recover or Not to Recover: Trends, Solutions, and Alternatives for Taming Online Research Costs - Monday, July 25, 2:15-3:30 p.m. (EDT)
- K6: The New Generation of Legal Research Databases: Eighteen Months Later - Tuesday, July 26, 3:15-4:15 p.m. (EDT)
In addition to these educational programs, we will webcast live the Committee on Relations with Information Vendors (CRIV) Vendor Roundtable: Putting ACTION into the Vendor Colloquium Action Plan on Monday, July 25, at 12-1:15 p.m. (EDT). Join a CRIV roundtable discussion on the action plan and shared principles developed as a result of AALL's Vendor Colloquium, "Creating, Disseminating, Using, and Preserving Legal Information in Challenging Times." Member input is critical to the success of the plan. Be a part of what should be a lively discussion on AALL and vendor relations.
You can access the webcasts via the links above or by finding the programs on AALL2go, your online center for professional development. If you can't watch the programs live, archived webcasts of the programs will be available free to members after the conference. Follow the buzz on Twitter at #aall11, too! Whether you're attending our conference in Philly or tending to your job back at the office, you can be part of the audience.
