CALIcon 2010 Unconference: Calling All Librarians!

CALICon 2010 Unconference

Robots in Legal Information Time to Reprogram!

Technological advancements in the past twenty years have radically changed the way librarians, IT departments and legal information providers create and accomplish their services.  In adapting to an electronic environment, libraries and librarians have often been on the cutting edge in using electronic tools in the area of reference and public outreach.  However, with respect to the acquisition, maintenance and distribution of electronic legal information, the library community has been reacting to the innovations of others. 

This unconference is intended to be an exploration of how librarians can re-conceive and re-implement their role in world  where legal content is being both created and distributed electronically. The legal information provider and IT communities are also invited.  It is hoped that by getting the various pieces of the information distribution chain in one room, we can all figure out the best ways to work together in the future.  

Interested?  Add your name to the attendee list and if you have a topic you'd be interested in talking about, add it to the proposed topic list.   More information about what an unconference is can be found here.
