SOS: Shaping Our Success – July 13, 2013

AALL Annual Meeting Seattle, WA

The Private Law Libraries Summit, now in its fourth year, continues as a vehicle for examining the impact and opportunities presented by change. Last year, we looked at changes in the business and practice of law and envisioned what those changes mean for the future. This year, we explore how to take charge, shaping ourselves as well as the services we provide to meet these new world demands. In the morning, a keynote address designed to get our creative juices flowing will be followed by a panel discussion addressing librarian roles: how do we identify, adopt and promote the roles that add value to our organizations? How do we brand ourselves as the owners of more than books and online contracts? In the afternoon, interactive breakout sessions will investigate the practical aspects of social media, the art of selling and the user experience. Participants will be better able to shape their success by defining the roles and developing the services that add value to our organizations.

Now on to the top 10 value propositions for attending….

10.  Escape the brutal July heat and spend time in “cool” and beautiful Seattle, Washington.
