This year’s American Association of Law Libraries Annual Meeting and Conference is around the corner, taking place July 18-21 in Philadelphia, PA. ProQuest is proud to support law librarians in this rapidly changing and ever-expanding world of legal information management.
If you’re attending the AALL Conference be sure to check out a popular feature, the poster sessions, which will be on display at the Exhibit Hall throughout the entire annual meeting. Catherine Johnson, Product Manager, ProQuest will be available during the poster session presentation period on Tuesday, July 21 from 9:45-10:45am to answer questions and discuss the work that she did with Marianne Ryan from Northwestern University Library on their poster, The Interdisciplinarity of Legal Research: Exploring Issues Related to Film Literature and the Arts.By harnessing this year’s theme, "The Power of Connection," the poster will showcase how legal research isn't just for law students and lawyers. With an ever-growing need for libraries to justify their worth and seek opportunities for collaboration, raising awareness of the interdisciplinary of legal resources can be critical. This poster session will focus on the arts, exploring issues such as copyright, licensing, censorship, and government funding to show that legislative materials have particular value to a general audience. Using examples from film and literature, Catherine and Marianne will show how these sources enrich interdisciplinary research and explain why they are essential to teaching and learning in the broader scholarly community.
