The AALL -SIS 2014 Summit is scheduled for Saturday, July 12, 8:30 am – 5 pm in San Antonio at the Marriott Rivercenter. Also mark your calendar for the Friday night July 11 Summit reception from 6-8:30.
The PLL-SIS Summit, now in its fifth year, continues as a vehicle for examining the impact and opportunities presented by change. Last year, we explored how to take charge, shaping ourselves as well as the services we provide to meet the changing needs of today’s law practice environment. This year we will consider “The Voice of the Client” by delving into ways librarians can help their firms deliver legal services more efficiently and add value through client-facing initiatives.
In the morning, a keynote presentation and a panel discussion will address the value that librarians can bring to the lawyers and clients they serve by examining how real-world practice innovations and changing models of legal service delivery are combining to create new opportunities for library professionals.
Following a relaxed networking luncheon, interactive afternoon break-out sessions will explore practical means of adding value to your firm via client facing initiatives, and will explore the role librarians can play in advocating for library client facing initiatives. The breakout sessions will be presented twice so that Summit participants can benefit from two of the three afternoon sessions.
