PLL-SIS Summit: Change as Opportunity (sponsored by LexisNexis)
This workshop marks the completion of the first year of a two-year effort by PLL to identify significant changes taking place in the legal world, to understand how these changes provide opportunities for assuming leadership roles, and to develop concrete plans for becoming leaders within our organizations. Management consultants, attorney-managers and practicing librarians will share their perspectives on change: what's happening and what we should be doing about it. During break-out sessions, participants will examine the results of webinars held over the past year to investigate best practices in the areas of core competencies, staffing, technology, space and nomenclature. Participants will also learn advocacy skills: how to craft persuasive arguments, how to draft effective memos, how to use metrics to make a business case. Participants will leave with the information and skills necessary to begin leading their own charge for change.

Separate registration fee: $195 - register by June 8.

Legislative Advocacy Training 2010: Raising the Bar in Your State
With the economic crisis forcing many states to tighten their budgets, some states are making short-sighted decisions to eliminate official print legal resources in favor of online-only, or to charge fees to access legal information electronically. In addition, a growing number of court and county law libraries around the country are facing drastic reductions of staff and resources, and even closure. We need your help more than ever before on these state issues.

As you can see from our agenda, this year's Advocacy Training, coordinated by the AALL Government Relations Office and Government Relations Committee and available at no cost to our members, will teach you the skills you need to prove to state officials the need to authenticate and preserve online legal information, and make sure they understand the vital role of your state's public law libraries.

We're very pleased to host guest speaker Keith Ann Stiverson, AALL Observer to the NCCUSL Drafting Committee on the Authentication and Preservation of State Electronic Legal Materials Act, who will give us an update on the draft act.

Following last year's successful Day on the Hill Advocacy Training in July and follow-up October Webinar, the Government Relations Office has been seeking volunteers in every state to form working groups to promote equitable, no-fee, permanent public access to authentic online legal information. This year's Advocacy Training will provide the opportunity for our volunteers to come together and share the challenges they face, as well as their success stories.

We will also discuss the state of our public law libraries. In recent years, public law libraries in Connecticut, Florida, Ohio, California, Washington, and other states have faced severe budget cuts, and even closure, that threaten to deny the public with access to legal materials. It is crucial that we work together to protect these at-risk libraries.

To volunteer to participate in your state's working group and/or register for the Advocacy Training, please contact Advocacy Communications Assistant Emily Feldman by June 1.

Rocky Mountain Rendezvous
Your day in the gorgeous Rocky Mountains promises to be one ofthe most beautiful scenic tours ever taken! Enter the ancestral Rockies and wind up the spectacular canyon to Estes Park, eastern gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park.

Rocky Mountain National Park is at its peak in summer, when the meadows are green and the wildflowers are plentiful on the alpine tundra. For 10,000 years, this season has been the favorite time to visit the region. Native Americans traveled between Grand Lake and Estes Park over the same trails that are in use today. Elk are plentiful in the park, as well as bighorn sheep, mule deer and a small population of moose. Wildlife viewing is possible most of the year but summer is a particularly good time to see the park's inhabitants. We'll tour the park by motorcoach, visiting the most scenic spots and most interesting landmarks.

Then it's all aboard for the return trip down to the charming and quaint mountain town of Estes Park. You will be given time in the afternoon to have lunch, sightsee and browse the myriad shops, quality boutiques and art galleries before our return trip to Denver.

Includes: Roundtrip deluxe motorcoach transportation, professional tour guide, beverages and snacks en route and admission to Rocky Mountain National Park. Lunch on own in Estes Park.

Historic Moments with The Browns
Today we tour the "Unsinkable" Molly Brown House, the entirely restored home of Colorado's most colorful Victorian heroine. Born Margaret Tobin Brown, she received her unusual nickname as a result of the courage and leadership she displayed during the sinking of the "Unsinkable" Titanic. Located in the Capitol Hill area, the house was originally built in the late 1800's and reflects turn-of-the-century Victorian influence. A privately guided tour of the premises reveals fascinating glimpses into the flamboyant lifestyle of a bygone era. The Browns made frequent trips to Europe and Molly incorporated the 'Grand Tour' style into her decorating.

We also visit the historic Brown Palace Hotel. Known to natives as "The Brown," this hotel has welcomed the rich and famous since opening in 1892. The 230-room historic landmark is located on a corner in the heart of downtown Denver. Your behind-the- scenes tour reveals loads of secrets!
Includes: Roundtrip deluxe motorcoach transportation, professional tour guide, tour of Molly Brown House Museum, tour of Brown Palace Hotel.

Note: The Molly Brown House is not wheelchair-accessible due to the historic nature of the home.

International exhumation expert Professor James E. Starrs of The George Washington University Law School will discuss the case of Colorado cannibal Alfred (Alferd) Packer, a member of a February, 1874, gold prospecting party who returned in the spring, well-fed and without his five companions. After denying wrongdoing, Packer admitted to cannibalizing two members of the party. Professor Starrs led a team of experts in the exhumation of the Packer party members, and will discuss his analysis of the scientific data gleaned from the victims' bones. This data undermined Packer's trial testimony, confirming that Packer cannibalized all five of his companions.

The creative team from Innovative Interfaces has introduced a new bibliographic utility, www.theskyriver.com, to compete with OCLC and, once again, offer libraries a choice for cooperative cataloging. The New England Law Library Consortium (NELLCO) has developed the Universal Search Solution (USS) - a master index of material, including participating library OPACs, web-based free and subscription-based material, local electronic content and other e-content that its participating libraries wish to make discoverable to researchers. The USS can also be used as an acquisition and copy cataloging tool. It's not your mama's bibliographic landscape anymore!

A1: The Bluebook: An Open Discussion Among Editors and Librarians
Target Audience: Anyone who uses The Bluebook, primarily academic law librarians
Learning Outcomes:
1. Law librarians will gain insight into The Bluebook and better comprehend the rationale behind the rules to better assist their patrons.
2. Bluebook editors will gain insight into the difficulties law librarians face when using The Bluebook with their patrons.

The Bluebook is the bane of all academic law librarians - We wonder if we can cancel the print format if The Bluebook requires it for cite checking. Why does interlibrary loan have to get a copy of the print resource when we know the author must have used an online source? Why are the rules so restrictive in an online age? Law librarians have long struggled with meeting the needs of the journal editors while balancing the needs of the collection and budgetary limits. But why do these rules exist? Why do some law review editors ignore the rules while others follow them as written? Is there a middle road for Bluebook rules? This program will feature an open discussion among law librarians and the editors of The Bluebook. By answering questions posed by the moderator, the editors will explain the rationale behind Bluebook rules, while the librarians will discuss issues they face as they assist users with The Bluebook. The program is not intended to make the editors change the rules "for us," but, instead, to make all users of The Bluebook better informed as they work with their editors and students.

A2: Mile High Summit on Training: Are Things Coming to a Peak?
Target Audience: Law library directors, legal research instructors, private law librarians, reference librarians, academic librarians
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to analyze the relationships between law firms, law schools and vendors to create a new way of collaboration on training programs for new lawyers.
2. Participants will be able to incorporate their understanding of these significant changes in the training of law students and new associates in their efforts to plan, create and revise existing legal research and other knowledge management training at their institutions and firms.

Librarians have debated this issue for years. Now, with the economy putting pressure on law firms and law schools, the talk about who and how to train law students to become practicing attorneys is becoming action. Law firms have announced in-depth training programs where the incoming associates are paid less but enrolled in intensive training on practicing laws. Law schools have added practice-oriented courses, and some have instituted lawyering programs. There have even been suggestions of unpaid apprenticeships. This program will examine how the current economic crisis has shifted the focus on how to train associates. Panelists will discuss the challenges facing law firms and law schools and identify opportunities for librarians to map their future and be a part of these revolutionary changes.

A3: Mapping a Digital Collection Development Policy: New Sign Posts or a Whole New Road?
Target Audience: Collection development, information technology and public services librarians
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to identify cross-departmental responsibilities and workflow issues involved in acquiring, maintaining and disseminating digital library resources.
2. Participants will be conversant with the life-cycle model of digital collection development and will be able to articulate the important differences in managing digital collections, as opposed to print and microform collections.

As digital resources increasingly dominate law library budgets, it is necessary to have guidelines for the acquisition and maintenance of the various forms of electronic holdings. Digital collection development activities challenge the traditional division of responsibilities within a library, affecting work flow and requiring new staff competencies. This program will cover issues with which every library is dealing by following the life-cycle model of electronic resources: selection, acquisition, licensing and copyright, discovery, and access and preservation. What is the difference between perpetual access and outright purchase? Can special collections be digitized and made freely available on the web? Are catalogs and cataloging obsolete? Is metadata tagging in a database sufficient? How do end users know what a library's digital holdings really are? What are the options and responsibilities concerning the preservation of digital content? Speakers will address these and other questions relevant to digital collection development policies. Program materials will include a bibliography and sample policies.

A4: Developing Your Supervisory Skills: Motivating and Retaining Unionized, Tenured, or Non-professional Employees
Target Audience: Firm/court/academic librarians thinking about taking on new supervisory duties or middle managers who want to know about supervising in different institutional environments
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to define best practice strategies for motivating and retaining staff in various library settings.
2. Participants will be able to summarize some of the unique challenges that may occur when supervising non-professionals, tenure track librarians, and unionized workers in libraries.

As librarians "move up" the career ladder, we are often confronted with new challenges as we take on more responsibilities, including staff supervision. This moderated panel discussion will explore some of the unique supervisory challenges that managers may face when trying to motivate employees in various library settings. Individual panelists will discuss supervising non-professionals, tenure-track librarians, and unionized workers. Finally, the moderator will briefly review tips for new supervisors and wrap up the presentation portion. Afterward, a panel discussion with audience participation will explore these major themes more thoroughly. Throughout the program, we will compare strategies that managers can use when confronted with new and difficult staffing situations. Speakers will also share some "best practices" that managers can use in any type of library setting. Comments will focus on motivating staff members, setting goals, staff development, and implementing management techniques that will help supervisors get the best performance from workers in all library settings. Speakers will also touch upon general strategies for supervisors who are new to these sometimes uncomfortable situations.

A5: After Hotel Rwanda and Welcome to Sarajevo: Preserving Trial Evidence and Documentation in a Multi-Media Age
Target Audience: Librarians interested in human rights and the role of librarians in society; librarians interested in organizing print and electronic archives, including judges' papers
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will identify ways to organize archives of a particular collection in a case study of court records and judges' papers.
2. Participants will be able to apply technology and organizational skills, and thereby, contribute to the rule of law through their professional expertise.

The International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) was established for the prosecution of persons responsible for genocide and other serious violations of international humanitarian law committed in the territory of Rwanda in 1994. The Tribunal is scheduled to close in 2010, and many questions have arisen as to the best way to preserve materials, which encompass different media, print, videos, CDs, and DVDs. Policy and technological issues abound, as well as special security concerns, such as safety issues for witnesses and judges. Using this case study, the speakers will discuss how law librarians can help organizations retain information for the future and the different technologies that can be used. The lessons learned can be extrapolated to other collections and judges' papers. Among the questions to be explored are the following: What is important to preserve for the future for civil actions and human rights investigations, and for scholars? What are the appropriate questions to be raised when dealing with collections, judges' papers, trial transcripts, briefs, and other trial documents that may be sensitive? What technological solutions currently exist? What does one do when there is no technological solution currently? How can law librarians use their expertise to assist in similar projects both domestically and internationally?

A6: "I Read the News Today, Oh Boy!": 21st Century Lessons for Law Libraries from the Recording and Newspaper Industries
Target Audience: Librarians dealing with or interested in the evolution of library technologies and patrons
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will analyze the successes and failures of the recording and newspaper industries in adapting to an online information world.
2. Participants will compare those successes and failures to similar challenges faced by law libraries.

Adapting to a digital world, law librarians face many pressures: online resources that are sometimes less usable than their print counterparts, escalating costs from a dwindling number of content providers, and patrons who expect all information to be online. Not surprisingly, other information markets, such the recording and newspaper industries, face similar problems. Both industries saw their content become available on the internet, and they continue to struggle with outside players seizing control of their markets, while facing economic backlash for not effectively meeting consumer expectations. What lessons should legal information professionals learn from these industries? A panel of law librarians and recording and newspaper industry experts will discuss these transitions, analyzing mistakes that have been made, and identifying opportunities for law librarians.

TS-SIS Program: What's in a Name: CORE and I-2, New Standards to Improve Efficiency in the Electronic Resources Environment
The current marketplace has numerous products from many vendors to address different aspects of electronic resources. Interoperability between them is essential to gain maximum benefits. CORE (Cost of Resource Exchange) describes a message structure which facilitates the transfer of cost data from Integrated Library Systems to Electronic Resource Management Systems. Identifying institutions with multiple departments, campuses and their hierarchical relationship can be very difficult. I-2 (Institutional Identifier) a proposed NISO standard, under development, is a unique identifier assigned to an institution. I-2 aims to be global, interoperable and unique and will show the hierarchical relationship of an institution with all its subsidiaries. Working group members of these two standards will discuss the need for these standards, their goals, objectives, data elements used and implementation issues.

Wise Law Library, University of Colorado at Boulder
Limited Capacity full

Located in the new Wolf Law Building, The William A. Wise Law Library at the University of Colorado Law School in Boulder is the most comprehensive and technologically sophisticated law library in the 12-state Rocky Mountain region. At 59,000 square feet, it is one of the largest law libraries in the country and has nationally recognized collections in the areas of American Indian Law, Constitutional Law and Jurisprudence, and Natural Resources and Environmental Law. Most of the law school's class composite photos, beginning with the Class of 1898, are now hung in the library. These photos give visitors a visual sense of how law school demographics (and hair styles!) changed throughout the 20th century.

The LEED certified Wolf Law Building offers stunning, close-up views of the Front Range of the Colorado Rockies from many windows, and is designed to bring natural light into the core of the building using skylights and interior windows. The building features Internet-based video recording stations, digital information kiosks, and state-of-the-art classrooms with video conferencing capabilities and comprehensive audio-visual systems. With its two high-tech courtrooms, Wolf Law is the setting for actual sessions of state, federal, and tribal appellate courts. Boulder's world-famous Pearl Street, known for its unique shops, restaurants and street performers, is only a short bus ride or walk past the grand Tuscan architecture of the CU campus.

Tours fill up quickly, so be sure to register early. There is no charge, but advance registration is required by June 8. [Bus Tour: 45 minute drive]

B1: Developing Leaders: Inside, Outside and Together
Target Audience: Law librarians interested in leadership and leadership development
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to explain and discuss the basic concepts and principles of emotional intelligence, and apply leadership concepts to their personal development and the development of their organizations.
2. Participants will discover that it is possible to have an influence at any level, whether you are a director, a middle manager, or new to an organization.

Librarians need to be able to identify abilities in themselves and within developing members of the profession that will allow them to be effective leaders. The three parts to leadership development are: 1) "The Inside," which means to know yourself. Examining the concepts of emotional intelligence will provide tools to better understand your leadership abilities and potential. 2) "The Outside," which means how we relate and use our abilities within our groups and organizations. 3) "The Together," which means it takes a village to raise a leader. Mentoring and feedback are vital to the development of one's own abilities and those around us. This panel discussion/discovery session will provide ample opportunity to discover and interact with the presenters.

B2: Mapping Uncharted Terrains: Introducing Archival Best Practices to the Management of Law School, Court and Law Firm Historical Collections
Target Audience: Law librarians who, among other duties, manage a collection of institutional archival materials
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to examine affordable and practical best practices for managing archives/historical collections.
2. Participants will be able to review resources and tools to help them analyze and manage the various materials found in archives/historical collections.

Librarians in small and mid-sized law libraries are forced to wear many hats, and one is that of the parent institution's "archivist." Many librarians thrust into this role are not trained as archivists and have a hard time discerning the accepted standards for accessioning, processing, preserving, and providing access to these collections. Often these supposed archives are actually a mixture of documents, print ephemera, photographs, digital media and even works of art. This program will introduce the rudiments of archival best practices, giving practical advice on what is an archival collection, what to keep, and how to describe and provide access to archival materials. It will also provide concrete solutions for managing the non-archival materials often lumped into these institutional collections.

B3: Open Source ILS: What a Service-Oriented System Brings to You and Your Library
Target Audience: Public and technical services librarians
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will identify at least three advantages and disadvantages of Open Source Integrated Library Systems (OS ILS) and assess the resources needed and cost benefits of developing a home-grown ILS model.
2. Participants will analyze the ability to interoperate with other systems, such as Electronic Resource Management (ERM), OpenURLs, and Federated Search, to leverage overall library service.

While the majority of libraries rely on proprietary systems, the OS ILS is a potentially viable approach for some technologically savvy libraries. Find out how OS ILS can reengineer your overall library service, as well as the challenges of its implementation. This program will cover what makes Open Source Software different from proprietary software, how it organizes it elements, what tools it uses, and how it operates. Presenters will also discuss how a service-oriented architecture can be incorporated into OS ILS and how a customized system can be interoperable with various systems to avoid repetitive data management. In addition, this session will survey the foreseeable implementation dilemma on in-house knowledge bases and resources for system development, as well as sustainable system maintenance/update.

With nearly 310 million people in the United States, counting every person is one of the largest, most expensive undertakings of the federal government. What is the history behind this $12 billion dollar project? What is the importance of the detailed information collected, and how is it utilized? A representative of the U.S. Census Bureau will talk about the policy and process behind this gargantuan task and the need to collect certain data in order to map out the changing identity and character of the nation's inhabitants. To present a practical application of this data, an experienced government documents researcher will describe the process resulting from his research on ethnic classification in Colorado, 1860-2005.

B5: What's a "Reasonable Royalty Rate"?: The What, Where, Why and How of Patent/Intellectual Property Technology Licensing Research
Target Audience: Information professionals in firms, corporations, and law schools conducting research or supporting courses in the areas of patent licensing/law, IP and technology; individuals doing corporate intelligence, mergers and acquisitions, or corporate due diligence searching
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will become familiar with licensing law and gain insight into the information needs of technology and patent licensing lawyers.
2. Participants will be able to utilize best practices research techniques and the most appropriate print and electronic sources for licensing, technology transfer and royalty rate research.

Researching issues associated with patent/technology licensing agreements, such as royalty rates, can be complicated, time-consuming tasks. License agreements, which grant rights in patents, copyrights, trademarks or other Intellectual Property (IP), typically include provisions for addressing upfront payments, royalty payments (often based on a percentage of the licensee's sales), IP ownership issues, and IP infringement issues. Not all of the information needed to effectively address these issues is easily found or publically available, which creates the need for researchers to use a number of print and electronic sources and different search techniques. A high-tech and biotech industry licensing lawyer, who also teaches licensing law courses, will give a broad overview of patent/technology licensing and describe the types of information licensing attorneys typically request of their law library. An IP law firm librarian will discuss the core collection of print and electronic sources for locating license agreements and royalty rates. Best practices research techniques will also be shared for licensing and royalty rate research and its usefulness for competitive intelligence, mergers and acquisitions, corporate due diligence searching, and IP ownership due diligence research.

B6: Library Videos: Getting Blockbuster Quality on an Indie Budget
Target Audience: Librarians who wish to deliver information about their libraries in a more dynamic format
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will identify opportunities to turn static library information into a dynamic video.
2. Participants will be able to devise a plan for writing, filming, and editing a basic video project.

Conducting building tours, conveying basic policy information, and answering frequently asked questions can all be a repetitive drain on staff time. Libraries can get proactive with these and other common tasks by repackaging the information into dynamic and fun videos, which can be posted to the library's website and Facebook page. This program will help library staff identify opportunities for movie-making in their own institutions, and provide concrete solutions for creating high-quality videos on a shoestring budget. Duke Law's in-house videographer will break down the steps of writing, filming, and editing an informational video that will both engage and educate your viewers. Whether you're a total technophobe or a home-movie pro, you, too, can make a great video for your library.

LISP-SIS Program: A Web 2.0 Collaboration: Mapping a Path for Pro Bono Partnerships
This program will show how new technologies can strengthen pro bono partnerships and will feature wikis that law librarians created for pro bono attorneys. In Hennepin County (MN), private firm librarians used Wikispaces to create a resource that provides legal information as well as access to Westlaw. A similar initiative by the Anne Arundel (MD) County Law Librarian will also be discussed. The program will offer useful tips on Wikis as well as recommendations about content.

C1: Glass Half Full? Explore Techniques for Putting Optimism to Work as a Management Tool in Difficult Times
Target Audience: Library directors and managers
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to identify three elements of the "explanatory style" after completing a model assessment tool during the session.
2. Participants will be able to utilize five techniques for challenging pessimistic thinking and building a positive operating framework.

Confronted with difficult times, optimists and pessimists respond in opposite ways. While seeing the glass half full in hard times may at first glance appear to be an optical illusion, the skill of viewing your world through an optimist's lens holds promise. When faced with difficulties, optimists don't give up. They view bad events as challenges to be mastered. Your pessimism/optimism meter is not irrevocably set at birth. Becoming an optimist means more than just putting on a smile, channeling your inner Pollyanna, and hoping for the best. This program will identify techniques for learning new cognitive skills that will help diminish lifelong pessimistic habits. Participants will discover strategies for strengthening personal resilience and decision-making skills, leading to a happier and more productive life.

Target Audience: Law librarians who utilize environmental regulations; librarians who provide legal information to non-legal professionals
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to list the documents produced in the environmental regulatory process.
2. Participants will be able to explain the unique requirements of the scientist as legal researcher.

Law librarians are familiar with how to research regulations. But do they know about the documents generated in the regulatory process, or how they can best serve non-legal professionals seeking this information? A research chemist and law librarian from the United States Environmental Protection Agency will provide a behind-the-scenes look at the regulatory process--how scientific research needs differ from that of legal professionals and how to provide legal information to non-legal professionals.

C3: A Vision for the Future: Authenticated and Official Online Legal Resources
Target Audience: Law librarians interested in access and use of state online legal resources
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to identify the states that have designated their online legal resources as official and that have authenticated those online legal resources.
2. Participants will be prepared to advocate the passage of a NCCUSL-prepared uniform law or model act for enactment in their states.

AALL has prepared the legal community for the future! Through its efforts, including its groundbreaking State-by-State Report on Authentication of Online Legal Resources in 2007, AALL began a movement to answer this question: "How trustworthy are state-level primary legal resources on the web?" AALL followed the report with its very important National Summit on Authentic Legal Information in the Digital Age, held in April 2007. The 2007 State-by-State Report has been updated by your law librarian colleagues, and those updates were released in the fall of 2009. Recognizing the importance of and the need to resolve this issue, the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws (NCCUSL) organized a committee to draft a uniform law. AALL's efforts must continue NOW to help us reach the future, and you can help. Join your colleagues to hear the progress that some states made between the publication of the 2007 report and the 2009 updates, to gain insight from the law librarian who is serving as the reporter with the NCCUSL Drafting Committee, and to learn how you can advocate the passage of the NCCUSL uniform law or model act in your state in order to address the trustworthiness of state-level primary legal resources.

C4: Communicating with Patrons-The Best of the Best
Target Audience: All academic law librarians who need to communicate with students
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to identify appropriate student communication strategies for their libraries.
2. Participants will be able to implement new communication methods and products in their libraries.

Communicating with students is a challenge academic law librarians face daily. Our competition is the students' downtime, lunchtime, web time, and time with friends. What's the best way to reach them? What works beyond the lure of free food? Does e-mail work? A Facebook posting? A web product? A snappy presentation in a common area in the library? Outside the library? The ALL-SIS Student Services Committee held a "contest," asking members to submit examples of their successes in communicating with students. Presented as an informal poster session, this program lets you meet the librarians who sumbitted the six "best of the best," learn about and see their projects, pick their brains, and take away ideas that you can implement at your library. Stop by and check out your colleagues' winning ways in communicating with patrons!

C5: Catalogers Today: Skill Sets, Expectations and Challenges
Target Audience: Library administrators at all levels, catalogers
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to list the qualifications required of a cataloging position in today's library environment.
2. Participants will be able to assess and justify the cataloging needs of their library.

Is your library short a cataloger, but at the same time faced with an administrative mandate to hold or cut costs? Or are you a cataloger looking for a position and wondering how to best achieve your goal? This conversation based on research can help you cope from either end of the spectrum. Dr. Sylvia D. Hall-Ellis, representing the library science professor perspective, describes her research into the changing expectations pertaining to cataloging positions. Stacey Bowers reacts to the research in her role as a law library administrator attempting to balance the constraints of the budget with the need to make materials accessible. And just to make it even more interesting, there is the impending implementation of new cataloging rules to deal with, as RDA replaces AACR2.

C6: Information Discovery and NELLCO's Universal Search Solution: A Twitterpated Conversation About the Future of Finding
Target Audience: Reference/research librarians, electronic resource librarians, IT librarians, wired librarians
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will gain an understanding of the enterprise search model and how it differs from a federated search.
2. Participants will become aware of vendor-related issues that may need to be resolved in order to implement a new discovery model successfully.

Based on the experiences gained by participants in the IMLS-funded NELLCO Universal Search Solution (USS) project, the panelists and attendees will discuss pathways to the future for libraries to improve discovery in an era of ubiquitous information resources and dwindling budgets. Enhancing patrons' timely discovery of relevant information will be an important role for librarians and a necessary goal of legal information providers to insure continued market share in an increasingly competitive market. The role of open source projects like the USS, Drupal, and the Extensible Catalog Project will be included in the discussion. We will assign a twitter hashtag for this session and invite attendees to bring their devices and join the dialogue. The tweets will be monitored by a moderator and pulled into the panelists' discussion where relevant.

D1: Hot Topic: Arizona's SB 1070: Necessary Protection from Illegal Immigration or a License to Discriminate?
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will analyze proponents' objectives in creating SB 1070, opponents' concerns over its implications, and the statute's constitutionality.
2. Participants will identify legal resources useful for researching these issues, so that they can best respond to customers seeking information on how the law may impact them.

The Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act, Arizona's SB 1070, was recently signed into law by Arizona's governor, Jan Brewer. The passage of this statute has spawned vigorous debate not only throughout the U.S., but throughout the Americas. Proponents allege that the law is a necessary step to stem the tide of illegal immigrants flowing into Arizona from Mexico. Opponents charge that this new statute legalizes racial profiling by law enforcement and is certain to be held unconstitutional. Law library customers across the country will soon be asking for information on how this new law is likely to impact them and their families. This program will aid legal information professionals in responding to customer questions by presenting speakers on both sides of the issue of Arizona's SB 1070, its efficacy and its constitutionality.

D2: 60 IP Sites in 60 Minutes
Target Audience: Information professionals in law firms, corporations, and law schools whose clientele - whether attorneys or the general public - want to research intellectual property (IP) issues
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will locate 60 useful intellectual property (IP) resources available on the web.
2. Participants will evaluate which resources will be most useful in their particular work environment.

Given the current economic changes, intellectual property (IP) protection is more important then ever to major corporations and small start-ups, both in this country and abroad. The number of patents granted annually has steadily increased over the last decade, as has the number of infringement litigation lawsuits. In response, both international IP offices and vendors have developed a wide variety of databases and services, which are constantly being upgraded and changed. Law librarians serving patrons seeking information on obtaining, licensing and/or enforcing strong patents, trademarks and copyrights must be able to evaluate and guide their patrons to the most appropriate resources available. An annotated handout listing web site names and URLs for patent, trademark and copyright research will accompany this presentation.

D3: What Is It You Do Again? Marketing the Patron Services of the Traditional to the Non-traditional Librarian
Target Audience: Individuals interested in learning about marketing patron services from other individuals in the profession
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will gain a greater understanding of the how other organizations and nontraditional librarians market their services.
2. Participants will be able to implement many of these marketing techniques at their organization.

People often get in a rut when marketing their services to their patrons. This program will expose the audience to the marketing of services at a variety of libraries. The format for the program will be a round robin/poster session. This presentation style will allow for the dissemination of a great deal of marketing information from many different points of view to the greatest number of individuals in the shortest amount of time. As the audience enters the room they will receive a number or color that designates their beginning station. Each station will have one librarian who will present the marketing of services performed at their library. Each presenter will also create a poster that will add to the information they provided in their short presentation. There will also be a few minutes for questions or browsing of the poster after each presentation. Next, each group moves on to another station. As the moderator my job will be to keep time and announce that it is time to move to the next station. After the session is concluded, we will set up the posters in the exhibit area or in a separate room for viewing.

D4: SKOS and HIVE: Enhancing the Creation, Design and Flow of Information
Target Audience: Librarians and information professionals interested in the semantic web
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to identify basic concepts about the semantic web and how SKOS works within it.
2. Participants will be able to define the terms: vocabulary integration, RDF, and OWL.

The reality of the semantic web is quickly approaching! An increasing amount of attention is being given to The World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Simple Knowledge Organization Systems (SKOS). SKOS is a way of developing standards for knowledge organization systems (i.e., classification schemes, like Library of Congress Classification Schemes; subject headings; and thesauri) that can be used in the semantic web. This presentation will give an introduction to the main concepts related to SKOS and discuss how SKOS is relevant to the law library environment. Speakers will also introduce a SKOS-based project called HIVE (Helping Interdisciplinary Vocabulary Engineering), an Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) funded open-source vocabulary server project that is meant to improve access to interdisciplinary collections.

D5: Starting Off on the Right Track: Avoiding Mistakes Common to New (and Not-So-New) Instructors
Target Audience: Librarians with teaching responsibilities, or anyone who supervises librarians with teaching responsibilities
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to identify and implement five non-lecture, pedagogically based techniques to transmit and reinforce knowledge in a classroom setting.
2. Participants will be able to design classroom activities to encourage learning research skills.

"Lecturing about Legal Research is as effective as telling someone how to ride a bike." Many new instructors of legal research and other disciplines fall into the trap of lecturing to communicate their course content, despite research showing that lecture is an inefficient form of instruction. Using volunteers as model students, speakers will engage the audience in these active learning exercises. This program will demonstrate several alternative teaching techniques, which have been used in legal research classes, and analyze their effectiveness.

D6: Research Guides 2.0: Creating Guides that Patrons Love with Less Hassle
Target Audience: Librarians who want to implement or improve web-based presentation of research guides
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to assess the benefits and drawbacks of various commercial and open-source research guide platforms, and identify the best solution for their library.
2. Participants will be able to create a strategy for efficiently creating and updating content on web-based research guides.

Research guides are a favorite tool of law librarians for sharing information with patrons, but the task of creating, updating and distributing them is time-consuming. There are now a number of software solutions that aim to streamline this process and enable librarians to create user-friendly, multi-media research guides. This program will compare the commercial and open-source applications available, including the popular LibGuides product, and provide participants with tools necessary to make an informed decision for their library. Panelists will also showcase strategies for implementing these systems, and explore best practices for creating and managing research guide content.

U.S. Courts Library for the Tenth Circuit
Limited Capacity full

The U.S. Courts Library for the Tenth Circuit serves the federal courts in the six-state circuit (Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Utah and Wyoming). The Denver Headquarters Library is located in the Byron Rogers U.S. Courthouse on the corner of 19th Street and Stout Street, just five blocks from the Denver Convention Center in Central Downtown. It is part of a five-building federal court complex and is across the street from the historic Byron White U.S. Courthouse, which houses an exceptional display dedicated to the life and career of Supreme Court Justice Byron White.

The White Courthouse is constructed in the neo-classical style and its exterior is now clad in Colorado Yule marble, quarried in Marble, Colorado (the same stone used for the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.). The Rogers Courthouse, and attached Federal Office Building, was constructed in the formalist style in 1965 and in 1996/97 was the site of the Timothy McVeigh trial. The Library was completely renovated in 2006. The tour includes visits to the Rogers Courthouse Library and the White Courthouse.

Tours fill up quickly, so be sure to register early. There is no charge, but advance registration is required by June 8. [Walking Tour: 15 minute walk]

E2: The Boulder Statement: Creating a Signature Pedagogy for Legal Research Education
Target Audience: Those who teach or would like to teach legal research in a law school environment
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to discuss and critique the signature pedagogy suggested by the Boulder Statement on Legal Research Education.
2. Participants will be able to compare the Boulder Statement on Legal Research Education with their own criteria for teaching legal research in light of the renewed emphasis on skills training in law schools.

Law schools are currently considering redefining their curriculums to respond to the highly influential 2007 Carnegie Report, Educating Lawyers: Preparation for the Profession of Law, which advocates enhancing the signature pedagogy of legal education, the Socratic Method, with an experience that better integrates skills instruction. Legal research is a fundamental legal skill, one the bench and bar routinely indicate law schools do not teach well. As legal research professionals, law librarians should respond to the Carnegie Report by examining legal research education. This presentation explains how law librarians can contribute to curricular reform by leading the way with the development of a signature pedagogy for legal research, based on the Carnegie Report's recommendations. The panel will provide an overview of the Boulder Statement on Legal Research Education, the need for a signature pedagogy of legal research, and how this statement can assist in advancing legal research instruction in law schools.

E3: Lies, Damned Lies, and Reference Statistics: Maximizing Your Data Efficiency
Target Audience: Librarians who wish to improve their institutions' methods for tracking reference inquiries
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will evaluate common approaches to maintaining reference statistics.
2. Participants will have the tools to identify the most effective solution for their own libraries.

While data about reference transactions can prove extremely useful for evaluating services, many librarians express unhappiness with their existing methods of collection and analysis. Before reinventing the wheel (again), come to this lively and opinionated evaluation of the most popular techniques for collecting reference statistics. Following the program, participants will understand: (1) reasons to collect statistics beyond minimum reporting requirements, (2) how to design forms that will improve the extraction of data without causing a staff mutiny, and (3) what fee-based solutions are available and how they compare to home-grown methods.

E5: Bringing Increased Efficiency to Technical Services: Is EOCR for You?
Target Audience: Technical services librarians, collection development librarians
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to explain what EOCR (Electronic Order Confirmation Records) is and how it streamlines technical services workflow.
2. Participants will be able to assess the scope and limitations of EOCR and whether it should be implemented in their library.

Have you reviewed your acquisitions workflow recently? Is it as automated and efficient as it could be? How would you like it if you didn't have to do pre-order searching in your catalog, didn't have to download bibliographic records, didn't have to create order records in your online system and didn't have to input invoice data for most of your titles? No, it is not a joke - you can do all this by implementing EOCR (Electronic Order Confirmation Records) and OCLC WorldCat Cataloging Partners. Many vendors offer this service for firm as well as approval book orders. This session will provide examples from one vendor on how they provide EOCR services, and a library's perspective on how they were implemented.

EPA Region 8 Technical Library
Limited Capacity seats available

The EPA Region 8 Technical Library provides technical library services to EPA Region 8 staff and makes environmental information and resources easily accessible to the general public who live in a six-state western region. The library's collection includes over 20,000 EPA reports, books, and journals, focusing on environmental issues and conditions unique to the American West, including Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, Wyoming and the 27 sovereign tribal nations. Special collections include: Green Buildings, Environmental Sustainability, Environmental Justice, and Western Wetlands.

The Region 8 Library was established in the early 1970s with a collection of handbooks, reports, and printed regulations. After a number of moves over the last 35 years, the library is now housed in a new LEED certified green building in downtown Denver. Depending on staff availability, the tour may include restricted areas of the building, including a cutting-edge "green roof." One of the first roofs of its kind in Colorado, it provides air and water quality benefits, reduces building heating and cooling needs, and features solar panels, a weather station and a large garden of research plants.

Tours fill up quickly, so be sure to register early. There is no charge, but advance registration is required by June 8.

F2: In PKI We Trust: Authenticating Our Future
Target Audience: Librarians who are interested in the access to and reliability of online legal information
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will learn about the technical aspects relating to the creation of authenticated online legal resources.
2. Participants will be able to explain to decisions makers the basics of establishing authenticated online legal resources.

Authentication? PKI? Digital signatures? Do these concepts make your head spin? The technology and processes involved in the creation of authenticated online legal resources can be confusing. Dr. James King, Senior Principal Scientist and PDF Platform Architect at Adobe will explain how public key infrastructure (PKI) and digital signatures are used to authenticate PDF documents. Mike Wash, Chief Information Officer at the Government Printing Office will discuss how these technologies are put into operation at the GPO in its authentication program. He will also address chain-of-custody issues by explaining how the GPO acquires data from the content originators and how the data is processed to ensure that it is authentic. These speakers will help give law librarians the understanding necessary to promote quality and trustworthy legal information for our digital future.

F3: FOIA Requests and Preservation: An Emerging Collection Development Model for the Virtual Library
Target Audience: Law librarians from all types of libraries, interested or involved in digital collection development, digital preservation, and freedom of information issues
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to identify, evaluate, and incorporate into their legal research strategies collections of declassified government documents secured through FOIA requests and made available online by agencies, libraries, whistle blowers, and watchdog groups.
2. Participants will be prepared to plan, preserve, provide access to, and publicize their own digital government documents collections. Participants will also be able to articulate how to establish a unique special collection by integrating FOIA requests with other collection development resources.

Many law libraries are looking to develop distinctive digital collections of materials that aren't available through commercial publishers. Collecting documents secured through FOIA requests offers a unique opportunity for these institutions. As government secrecy has increased, the number of FOIA requests has escalated, making procuring previously restricted government documents for public use an important goal. Law libraries are poised at the intersection of scholarship, freedom of information, preservation, and collection development, standing in a pivotal position to help scholars and practitioners access this hard-to-find content. This program will present a cross-section of perspectives on building, contextualizing, publicizing, and preserving a digital archive collection of materials secured through FOIA. Discover how these declassified documents in digital formats can be collected, archived, and made accessible for current and future research.

F4: Beyond Wayback: Preserving Born-Digital Ephemera
Target Audience: Librarians struggling with how to deal with archiving Born-Digital Ephemera
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will analyze and compare different approaches to preserving digital ephemera.
2. Participants will be able to plan their own digital preservation efforts.

The Internet Archive's Wayback Machine provides a great service preserving web sites that many librarians have used for research. Some libraries have even implemented their own versions for archiving digital materials, but new types of internet content have changed the game. Tweets disappear from Twitter's search within a week and a half after posting. YouTube videos can be taken down as quickly as they are posted. These new forms of digital content are often transient, with no permanent home, promise of preservation, or even plan for long-term data storage. Richard Leiter, host of the Law Librarian Blog Talk Radio Show, will lead a panel discussion on preserving digital ephemera. Preservation experts will discuss the challenges and opportunities associated with archiving data. They will explain preservation efforts already underway, describe tools for preservation, and offer considerations when building collections of digital ephemera.

F5: "Ohhhh (Gulp!), You Said 'SEC'? I Thought You Said 'SIC'!": Taking the Anxiety Out of Securities Research and the Mystery Surrounding the Securities & Exchange Commission
Target Audience: Any law librarian who has to conduct or train others in corporate securities research, but doesn't know where to start or how to begin
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to identify, explain, and locate the most common corporate security filings and understand the role the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) plays in all of it.
2. Participants will gain the knowledge to create and perform their own corporate securities training session.

It is becoming more and more common practice for law librarians to be able to conduct business research - specifically corporate/securities research, in addition to traditional legal research - and yet many of us are terrified and intimated by such requests. Many attorneys are finding that their first assignments upon landing a job at a law firm require them to conduct basic corporate/securities research. Yet, often these attorneys are not exposed to corporate securities research while in law school, so they are turning to their librarians for assistance. Many librarians, however, whether they are in a private setting, academic setting or corporate setting, are not familiar with corporate securities research - how to conduct the research themselves nor how to train their students, faculty, or attorneys. The objective of this session is two-fold: 1) to make law librarians more valuable and marketable as research librarians by learning how to conduct basic securities research (identify filing types, the process of a company going public and trading with the SEC), and 2) to demonstrate how to draft and structure a basic securities research to present to students and attorneys (i.e., what would be too ambitious for a "Securities 101" training session, and what would make you look like a securities research rock star!).

F6: Partnering with Public Libraries to Expand Services
Target Audience: Librarians who wish to expand the reach of their services outside the boundaries of their library
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will take away concrete ideas of what types of additional services they can implement to reach out to the community.
2. Participants will learn the pros and cons of a partnership with public libraries.

Law library services are often limited by hours and locations. Public libraries tend to have longer hours, convenient locations and are generally well-known to the community. Panelists will explain how they have been able to reach the public with new services they have created in partnership with public libraries. Such services include: volunteer attorney clinics held in public libraries, a law library branch located within a public library, public legal information sessions held in the public library, and law library collections located within public libraries.

FCIL-SIS Program: Roman Interest Law Group presents 'F.H. Blume's Annotated Justinian Code: A Western Classic'
Why did Wyoming State Court Justice Fred Blume work in his spare time to produce an annotated English translation of the Code of Justinian? Why did other common law lawyers and jurists, including Roscoe Pound and Oliver Wendell Holmes, write on Roman law? Why did Justice Stevens cite Roman law in a 2005 opinion? What other Roman law influences lurk in American law? Timothy Kearley, Director of the Law Library & Professor of Law, University of Wyoming College of Law, will introduce the Code of Justinian and share the story of Justice Blume's work and the creation of the Annotated Justinian Code website. Lucia Diamond, librarian for The Robbins Collection at the University of California, Berkeley, will highlight other Roman law influences in the U.S.

TS-SIS Program: The Ever-Evolving World of Vendor-Supplied MARC Records
As law libraries increasingly rely on online resources, there is a growing need for MARC bibliographic records to represent these resources in the local online catalog. Many law libraries now have access to large digital collections such as Making of Modern Law, LLMC-Digital and HeinOnline, not to mention Lexis and Westlaw, with titles too numerous to be cataloged locally. As a result, law libraries must rely on records supplied by vendors for access to these titles in their local catalogs. Members of the TS-SIS Task Group on Vendor-Supplied Bibliographic Records will discuss the new standards for provider-neutral e-monograph records. The ongoing work of evaluating MARC record sets and working with vendors and others to improve the quality of these record sets also will be explained.

CS-SIS Program: Database Ownership: Myth or Reality?
For some databases, vendors advertise the option to purchase data outright so libraries "own" the content if the vendor goes out of business or the library cancels its subscription; this option is expensive but promises perpetual access to the data. Join the Barco Law Library staff as they explain the hidden costs of "owning" a database and the difficulties of storage and access when a subscription was cancelled and the vendor provided content as promised.

G1: Navigating Your Way to the Classroom: Law Librarians Teaching New Law School Classes
Target Audience: Librarians interested in performing legal research instruction
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to successfully introduce a proposal to their institution for a new legal research course.
2. Participants will design a syllabus and assignments that will measure students' success at achieving learning goals.

The 2007 Carnegie Report on Legal Education calls for significant changes in legal education, including greater emphasis on practical skills development. This could potentially result in greater teaching opportunities for law librarians. The speakers, three librarians who teach upper-level legal research courses, will discuss how they bring "real life" into their classrooms through their lectures, exercises, classroom discussions, and assessment tools. Using a foreign and international legal research class as a case study, the first speaker will guide participants through the necessary steps to design, obtain law school approval of, and implement a course. The second speaker will prepare participants to design a syllabus, including learning goals, and assignments that will measure students' success at achieving those learning goals. The speaker will also address the need to consider students' various learning styles when creating assignments. The final speaker will identify the skills and practices necessary for building one's credibility as a professor, thereby creating an effective classroom presence. This program will help other librarians develop their own legal research course.

G2: Accounting: Prepare for Your Future
Target Audience: Librarians from all types of organizations
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will learn the basics underlying all accounting reports and procedures. They will also learn the highlights of the most salient characteristics of accounting for each type of organization in which they work.
2. Participants will understand and be prepared to participate more effectively in their institutions.

Speak your boss's language. Numbers are the language of business, and in these demanding times, we need to speak that language. Librarians are not accountants, but all directors and many other library managers work with budget and accounting systems. Attendees will learn about budget creation and control and be introduced to the accounting basics common to all organizations. The special accounting features of each type of organization in which librarians work will also be covered. This program is appropriate for directors, middle managers, or those hoping to become managers. No prior accounting, finance or mathematical knowledge is required.

G3: AALL Public Policy Update
Target Audience: All librarians who are interested in information policy and legislative advocacy
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to identify the AALL legislative and information policy issues affecting the Association and law librarians.
2. Participants will learn about the activities of the Copyright Committee, Electronic Legal Information Access and Citation Committee, Government Relations Committee, and Government Relations Office.

The AALL policy update annually provides the AALL membership with news about progress with information policy issues and legislative advocacy efforts during the year, as well as pending legislation and administrative actions of particular interest to our membership. GRC Chair Camilla Tubbs will present the 2010 AALL Public Access to Government Information (PAGI) Award and the Robert L. Oakley Advocacy Award to our distinguished recipients. She will also provide an overview of the GRC's work during the past year. Vice-chair of the Copyright Committee Roger Skalbeck, Chair of the Electronic Legal Information Access and Citation Committee Emily Janoski-Haehlen, and Director of the Government Relations Office Mary Alice Baish will summarize their year's activities and accomplishments.

G4: More Than a Potluck: Building Community and Social Capital in Your Library
Target Audience: Managers at all levels in all law library environments who are concerned about maintaining a vibrant and highly functioning work force in a time of great change
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will learn about social capital - its role in building community and its importance in fostering strong institutions in the future.
2. Participants will return to their institutions and organizations with specific strategies to build community and enhance social capital in their own libraries.

Employee trust and a sense of common identity are the "glue" that hold a library together. The term "social capital" has come to define these strong and stable relationships that make organizations operate cohesively and as true communities. Those exceptional libraries that have significant social capital are characterized by energized and challenged staffs that have a sense of belonging to and committing to an entity greater than any one individual. This program will address how libraries - even during times of downsizing, organizational restructuring, and job freezes - can "invest" in social capital by encouraging professional and personal connections among staff, while nurturing institutional loyalty and trust. An expert on building organizational communities will focus on strategies to create libraries that are places of engagement and community in which staff are committed to one another and to the overriding service enterprise. The next panelist will discuss how to encourage staff cooperation and productivity while simultaneously fostering individual creativity, diversity, and innovation. The third panelist will offer practical guidance on creating a strong sense of institutional identity and overcoming the challenges to building community within a library.

G5: MARC and RDA: An Overview
Target Audience: Catalogers, technical services librarians
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to identify the changes in the MARC formats, which support compatibility with RDA (Resource Description and Access).
2. Participants will be able to explain how the changes will influence law material cataloging.

This presentation will explain the changes in MARC (MAchine-Readable Cataloging) to support compatibility with the upcoming cataloging standard, RDA (Resource Description and Access), and the likely influence of those changes on law material cataloging. For years, MARC has successfully supported previous cataloging content standards, such as AACR2. The new cataloging standard, RDA, is designed for our digital world, and is intended to provide more user-friendly access to all types of information resources. Accordingly, MARC formats need to change to facilitate data exchange of records using the new standard. What are those changes, and how will the changes affect law libraries? The presentation will focus on these topics and help law catalogers and other technical services librarians prepare for the RDA era.

G6: Hillmon's Bones: Solving a 19th Century Legal Mystery with 21st Century Research
Target Audience: Instructors, legal historians and other professionals who want to learn the fascinating story behind one of the most famous exceptions to the hearsay rule; reference librarians who want to learn practical tips for approaching a multi-faceted historical legal research project
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to explain the details of the Hillmon case, how this case created an exception to the "Hearsay Rule" of evidence, and if the findings of the 21st century research team support the creation of this exception.
2. Participants will be able to the describe research methods and resources that were used to solve the mystery of who was buried in John Hillmon's grave.

Mutual Life Insurance Company v. Hillmon is the landmark 1892 U.S. Supreme Court case that created Federal Rule of Evidence 803(3), which allows statements of intention to be admissible as evidence in court. Learn how a law professor's scholarly interest in this rule eventually lead to the exhumation of a corpse to prove who was buried in Hillmon's grave-and ultimately determined whether the Supreme Court erred in creating this rule. This fascinating case study also highlights the role of historical and legal research techniques and how various materials, formats and repositories (including the National Archives and local historical societies) played their own unique and valuable roles. This case has something for everyone-librarians, lawyers, unsolved mystery fans, and western history buffs.

H1: The Economics of Interface: Vendors Respond
Target Audience: All librarians who use Lexis or Westlaw, or who train patrons in efficient online legal research
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to teach others how user interface design affects the legal research process.
2. Participants will be able to articulate how market forces and economic pressures influence legal information vendors and their web site designs.

Recent scholarship has theorized that Westlaw and Lexis design their user interfaces to maximize profits to the detriment of legal research. In this interactive session, vendors will respond to this assertion. Using an interview style question-and-answer format, panelists will discuss how their respective companies might harness technology to better serve the legal information industry, and whether the competing needs for efficiency and profit can peacefully coexist. Perspectives from new organizations outside the duopoly, which feature alternative legal research platforms, will augment the conversation. All panelists will candidly discuss the economic realities of online legal research and the provision of digital legal information.

2. Participants will be able to evaluate best models and cost-effectiveness in the trend toward electronic dissemination in relation to their library's access to, use, and publication of government information.

A panel of experts will discuss the impact of new federal and state government distribution technologies (including the new GPO mass digitization program and commercial vendor products), new methods of processing and resource sharing in depository publications (including new methods of linking catalog records using durable URLS for government information), and how research methods in the new digital government resources have changed.

H3: Statutes, Cases and Codes, Oh My! Easing Public Librarians Down the Road to Legal Reference
Target Audience: Public law librarians, academic law librarians and reference librarians
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to train public librarians to provide meaningful legal reference.
2. Participants will be able to train public librarians to recognize and avoid the unauthorized practice of law.

Use of public libraries has increased dramatically during times of economic crises and litigants are increasingly turning to self-representation at court. "Access to justice" has become a powerful buzz-phrase in our current society and profession. Numerous public librarians receive requests for legal reference daily. Effective and meaningful training can be conducted by experienced law librarians. Use of ever-increasing self-help resources will be addressed in addition to traditional legal reference. Experienced public and academic law librarians will demonstrate a few successful training models to empower public librarians by giving them the necessary tools to provide excellent legal resources for reference while avoiding the unauthorized practice of law. A public (non-law) librarian will share experiences with the training and corresponding ability/comfort level providing legal reference to patrons.

H4: The Semantic Web and RDA: Making the Catalog a Networked Bibliographic Environment
Target Audience: Library directors, catalogers, technical services librarians, information system managers, database managers
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to describe the features and functionality of the Semantic Web.
2. Participants will be able to explain how Semantic Web technology can transform library data, using RDA (Resource Description and Access) as an example.

This presentation will introduce how Resource Description and Access (RDA), the upcoming cataloging standard, can integrate the library catalog with the web services developing out of the Semantic Web. The Semantic Web is an emerging technology that will build a web of knowledge from today's web of documents. Using Resource Description Framework (RDF), the Semantic Web focuses on the identification of information entities and the relationships between them. RDA is similarly based on the entity-relationship model of the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR). Applying Semantic Web concepts to the new cataloging standard can result in the evolution of library data into a more effective and flexible information retrieval tool. This will also facilitate data-mining and bibliometric analysis based on the bibliographic relationships coded in the structured metadata.

H5: The Phoenix Factor: Rising from the Ashes of Aggravation to Create Opportunity
Target Audience: Library managers, librarians engaged in patron services
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to list seven steps in the service-building process.
2. Participants will be prepared to identify sustainable service opportunities that present as workplace aggravation.

Unmet needs in a library frequently present as recurrent aggravation that can drain morale and productivity. However, many of these aggravations can be turned into opportunities for creating new services for the library or niche markets for the librarians who respond to the hassle. We will offer tips on how to recognize sustainable opportunities from freak or fluke events, how to approach production logistics, and how to map out marketing and delivery strategies for services that can be grown from the original hassle or aggravation. Panel members will demonstrate the service-building process by describing how they responded to hassles in their libraries to build solutions and services. David Lehmann will present his strategy for filling a service gap created when a former "expert" took another job. Tara Lombardi will describe how she turned chaos into a service delivery system for her pro se patrons. Vicenç Feliu will present his plan for building a knowledge management system to track reference questions and solutions, and Charlene Cain will describe how she turned a chance opportunity for intellectual freedom training into a statewide outreach program.

H6: Looking Up from the Bottom: Bankruptcy Law and Research
Target Audience: Primarily firm librarians, but those in academic and court/county law libraries will also benefit from the content
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be presented with an introduction to the sources of bankruptcy law, the structure and jurisdiction of the court system, bankruptcy terminology and concepts, and key documents in a bankruptcy case.
2. Participants will gain an understanding of how information contained in bankruptcy filings can be useful for business intelligence gathering, as well as legal research and practice.

Business and consumer bankruptcies have been at the forefront of the news, and law librarians need a basic understanding of the process. Although bankruptcy is a federal statute, most of the proceedings take place in the bankruptcy courts that are adjunct courts to the district courts. Therefore, state law is largely applied to determine rights among parties. This program will explain the major concepts of bankruptcy law, including the various chapters and how they function; the appeals process; and where opinions are reported. Using PACER and other sources, we will also examine the more common documents filed in bankruptcy courts by debtors and creditors to uncover information that those unfamiliar with the bankruptcy process may not have suspected existed.

Holland & Hart is the largest law firm in the Mountain West, with over 400 attorneys in 15 offices in seven states. The firm focuses on the industries that thrive along the Front Range, including aerospace, construction, emerging growth companies, energy, life sciences, manufacturing, minerals, natural resources, oil and gas, real estate, recreation and resorts, technology, and telecommunications. The Holland & Hart Library in Denver is composed of five librarians and two support staff that provide for the library resource and service needs of the firm's attorneys and paralegals in all 15 offices.

The Library facilities house a collection that meets the needs of its local attorneys, as well as the changing needs of its far-flung patrons whether two floors or two states away. The Library as a place is designed to be a pleasant work space and gathering area for our Denver users. Although the attorneys come for the still substantial print collection housed in our main library and three satellite libraries, they stay for the amazing views of Denver and the Rocky Mountains from the wall of west facing windows. With substantial work space and computer access, the Library provides a comfortable alternative work space for the Denver attorneys.

Tours fill up quickly, so be sure to register early. There is no charge, but advance registration is required by June 8. [Bus Tour: 20 minute drive]

Denver Public Library, Western History Department
Limited Capacity filling up

Denver Public Library's Western History Department is recognized for having one of the outstanding collections of Western Americana in the country. The collection, which opened to the public in 1935, reflects all phases of development of the trans-Mississippi West and includes approximately 200,000 cataloged books, maps, atlases, business records, and scrapbooks; 600,000 photographs; and 3,700 manuscript archives. Collections of special depth include Western railroads publications, reports and maps of Colorado mining companies, trade catalogs, frontier theater programs, land grant materials, and printed memorabilia of Buffalo Bill's Wild West shows.

In 1995, the Western History Collection and the Genealogy Collection merged into one department in 1995, moving into the fifth level of the new Michael Graves library building. The Genealogy Collection, which began in 1910, is the second largest between the Mississippi River and the West Coast and the largest in the Rocky Mountain area.

I2: NEW PROGRAM - AALL, Boycotts and Antitrust: Is There a Nexus?
Target Audience: All law librarians who purchase library materials or who wish to learn more about the law of antitrust
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will explore the scope of currently allowable speech acts under antitrust laws.
2. Participants will learn about the proposed concept of "expressive boycotts" as protected speech.

Experts agree that existing antitrust laws do not allow a concerted boycott by AALL membership. Recently, AALL members and leadership have expressed concerns over the limited ability of AALL and its members under current law to challenge publisher prices or other market proposals in a concerted manner. The speaker for this program has written an article, "Antitrust Censorship of Economic Protest," 59 Duke L. J. 1037 (2010), that directly addresses the concerns of both AALL members and the AALL executive board. Greene's article suggests the need for a new legal framework for protecting economic speech interests in the antitrust context. It will provide the foundation and framework for an introduction to and lively discussion of this topic.

I3: Beyond (But Within) the Academy: Teaching Research in Law School Clinics
Target Audience: Librarians of all levels who want to become better integrated with courses, students, and faculty
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to demonstrate to faculty how libraries can enhance a law school's opportunities for experiential education.
2. Participants will be able to identify ways to integrate themselves into Course Management Systems.

Clinical education provides law librarians with a tremendous teaching opportunity for many reasons. First, the clinics are in line with the Carnegie Report's recommendation for experiential learning. The classes are relevant and specific, which benefits adult learners. Second, many clinics are transactional. Librarians can teach an area not often covered in the traditional legal research curriculum. Finally, librarians can become integrated in Course Management Systems (CMS). CMS software generally excludes libraries in their design, so faculty members overlook the role librarians can play in their classes. During this session, a panel of librarians will discuss the role their libraries play in clinical education, and provide suggestions on how your library can become better integrated with your law school clinics.

I4: Turning the Page: e-Book Readers in Law Libraries
Target Audience: All law librarians
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to assess and compare several features of e-book readers, such as the Amazon Kindle, Sony Reader, and iPhone.
2. Participants will be able to explain potential uses and limitations of current e-book technology in law libraries and to anticipate changes in the technology.

E-books for devices such as the Amazon Kindle, Sony Reader, and iPhone are a small but growing segment of the total market for books. As time passes, more law students, lawyers, and other law library patrons will likely be reading some books - including law books - on e-book readers. What should law librarians know about these technologies? In what ways might legal publishers tailor books and other content for e-readers? Should law libraries start to acquire e-book readers and e-books, or wait for further developments? The presentations and a follow-up audience discussion will address these questions and related issues.

I5: Charting New Roles for Technical Services: Faculty Publications and Institutional Repositories
Target Audience: Technical services librarians, information technology librarians, administrators
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be prepared to compare features of a faculty publications website and an institutional repository, and assess the advantages of each model.
2. Participants will be able to create new job opportunities for technical services staff.

Institutional repositories are designed to collect, preserve, and disseminate in digital format the intellectual output of an institution. As such, institutional repositories are gaining in recognition as a key factor in emerging digital research and the ability to provide free and unrestricted access to faculty research. A faculty publications website provides similar access, but with different requirements and expectations. Faculty publications websites focus on listing the published works of current faculty, and may not provide open access to all of the publications listed. The model that an institution follows will be guided by its mission and the resources available to support it. As traditional work routines in technical services diminish, this program demonstrates how technical services staff can continue to support the library's evolving mission.

I6: The Frugal Librarian: Pinching Pennies (Relatively) Painlessly in Your Law Firm Library
Target Audience: Law firm librarians looking to make their budgets go further
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will identify concrete ways to cut costs in the library without compromising the quality of service.
2. Participants will demonstrate to management that they are exploring alternative ways to cut expenses.

You've been asked to do more with less, but your budget is already cut to the bone. What's left? You'll be surprised at what your colleagues have done to stretch their dollars! Join us for a lively discussion of suggestions taken from private law librarians in a recent survey (to be conducted in the spring of 2010). Topics will include collection rebalancing, managing online costs, harnessing inexpensive technology, maximizing staff hours and expertise, uncovering those hidden expenses, and level-setting expectations within your firm - given the new economic realities. This session will be fun and fast-paced, with something for everyone. You'll walk out convinced that it is possible to pinch pennies (relatively) painlessly in your law firm library.

FCIL-SIS Program: Indigenous Peoples Interest Group and the Native Peoples Law Caucus present 'The Rights of Indigenous People'
This program is an introduction to The Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples which was created to address the unique situation of indigenous peoples around the world. While drafting was begun in 1983, the Declaration was not passed until September 13, 2007. Affecting the over 370 million indigenous peoples around the world, it is a complex document, little known outside the world of indigenous studies. 143 countries voted in favor of the Declaration with only 4 negative votes (Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States). As reflected in the new Library of Congress law classification "KI," for works dealing with indigenous peoples in the western hemisphere, it is a detailed area of law. This program will provide both domestic and international law researchers with an opportunity to learn more about issues concerning indigenous land rights, the environment, climate change, obligations of states, as well as resources on the drafting history and subsequent developments.

J1: The Future of FOIA
Target Audience: Public services, government documents and administrative librarians who are interested in access to federal documents
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to identify the current and potential future changes to the FOIA law in the Obama administration.
2. Participants will gain an understanding of the ways in which FOIA can contribute to their library missions.

The climate for access to government information has changed since the beginning of the Obama Administration. The new president, on his first day in office, famously changed the climate for the FOIA by issuing a statement that agencies should interpret the FOIA be erring on the side of making information available. Speakers from both sides of the table will discuss the implementation of that mandate, and offer practical advice on making FOIA requests. Miriam Nisbet, Director of NARA's Office of Government Information Services, is one of the speakers. The Office of Government Information Services was established by the Open Government Act of 2007, and the office is charged with reviewing FOIA policies and procedures of administrative agencies to make sure they are in compliance with the law. AALL worked for many years to get the Open Government Act developed and passed. The second speaker will be Anne Weismann, Chief Counsel of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics (CREW), one of FOIA's most outstanding advocates. CREW has made many memorable FOIA requests, and maintains an archive of the documents it has secured.

J2: Going Mobile: New Tools to Keep Your Library's Information Moving
Target Audience: Librarians interested in learning about mobile technology
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to identify and analyze mobile applications for use in law libraries.
2. Participants will be able to plan the creation of a mobile application.

According to a 2008 report by the Pew Internet and American Life Project, "the mobile device will be the primary connection tool to the Internet for most people in the world in 2020." Chances are, many users already use these devices to access websites and catalogs. All types of law libraries must begin meeting the demands of mobile technology, whether by delivering information to an attorney's Blackberry or by enabling students to access library resources by iPhone. This session will introduce attendees to the world of mobile applications. We will evaluate applications of interest to law librarians and their users. The live action demonstration of popular mobile applications will prepare attendees to implement effective mobile interfaces. We will explain the technology behind mobile applications and the steps required to create your own - whether you decide to do it yourself or outsource the project.

J3: The Durham Statement on Open Access One Year Later: Preservation and Authentication of Legal Scholarship
Target Audience: Academic librarians; those supporting electronic publishing programs, preservationists, legal information technologists
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will develop an understanding of the open access movement and its impact on legal scholarship.
2. Participants will learn how to evaluate preservation alternatives for electronic journals in order to assist their own institutions to plan for electronic publishing and preservation.

The Durham Statement on Open Access to Legal Scholarship calls for every U.S. law school to commit to ending print publication of its journals and to making definitive versions of its journals and other scholarship immediately available upon publication in stable, open, digital formats, rather than in print. The Statement provoked strong reactions from law librarians and others concerned about the lack of "stable, open, and digital" formats for preserving electronic journals. The participants in this program, two law school information technologists and a prominent law library director, will have worked together for a year examining questions involved in developing "stable, open, and digital" formats for electronic journals. They will present the results of their efforts and alternatives for moving forward at this program.

2. Participants will understand the conflicting demands on and history of western U.S. water law.

Participants will learn the history of water in the American West, including Colorado River litigation and the establishment of Colorado's water court system. Speakers will address current conflicts and resolutions as well as potential changes in the future. Finally, the program will offer tips on finding water law resources in our collections and online.

J5: Documenting the Law: Video Instruction and Documentaries in Legal Education
Target Audience: Librarians involved with educational support or teaching; faculty; teaching professionals
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to discuss the practical realities and costs of producing polished video programs in-house.
2. Participants will be able to explain pedagogical benefits of producing instructional and legal education documentaries in-house.

Law librarians and law faculty often search for video programming addressing particular topics and issues. PBS and independent film distributors do provide access to documentaries on such topics as immigration, domestic violence, and prisons. Using such materials, however, requires extensive librarian or faculty preview for gleaning relevant content. What would it take to produce a legal research video or a documentary addressing specific legal principles? This program will review key considerations for producing polished instructional videos and documentaries in-house - including filming in libraries, court rooms, and prisons, as well as personnel and infrastructure costs - and highlight a unique course of documentary filmmaking in law school as a model for legal curricula.

Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be familiar with core concepts of tax law language and research.
2. Participants will have the ability to perform basic research using appropriate resources specific to tax law.

Why is tax research so different? This program will empower the new or infrequent tax researcher who would like to better understand the fundamentals of tax law. The presentation will give an overview of the many types of primary and secondary sources unique to tax research both in print and online, including the Internal Revenue Code, Treasury Regulations and IRS pronouncements. The four trial courts for federal tax cases and the concept of judicial deference will be explained. The program will also provide a basic research strategy and discuss some common errors made by researchers who are unfamiliar with this area of the law. The presenters are experts in the field from a variety of settings, including law firm, academic and publishing.

TS-SIS Program: How Are We To Accomplish That Much More with That Much Less?
Pursuant to the cuts that libraries have been asked to sustain while striving to maintain optimum service, we have reorganized, revamped, and realigned processes, tasks, procedures, and, just as importantly, our daily outlook. The draconian moves employed to deal with economic uncertainties take a toll on our collections and the psychological well-being of library staff in professional and support positions. This program, through active discussion by librarians and a mental health professional, seeks to give guidance in dealing with these issues. Part 1 will deal with change management - how libraries have managed their changing environments due to shrinking budgets and the march from print to electronic. Part 2 will address the human responses to these changes with a presentation by a mental health professional.

Limited Capacity filling up

The Westminster Law Library is part of the Sturm College of Law at The University of Denver, a beautiful urban campus which sits on 125 tree shaded acres with fantastic views of the Rocky Mountains. The library is approximately 36,000 square feet and occupies portions of three floors of the law school. The collection is housed on all three levels of the library with service points on each level. Inside the library you'll find The Hughes Room, donated in honor of an 1898 graduate of the law school, Gerald H. Hughes. This room contains several pieces of furniture from the honoree's office as well as over 3,000 volumes from his personal library.

The Sturm College of Law, which opened in its new location in 2003, was the first LEED certified law school in the United States. The physical orientation of the seating on levels 2 and 3 takes advantage of the natural sunlight. Additionally there are light harvesters to conserve energy and a five story "light-well" that allows natural light into the center of the law school. For visitors interested in an exciting alternative mode of transportation to the tour site, take a ride on Denver's new easy-to-use light rail line. The DU campus is located just a few blocks from the train station.

1. Participants will be able to identify three principles of designing memorable, engaging, and effective PowerPoint presentations to teach legal research.
2. Participants will be able to revise or design presentations to promote learning.

Do your legal research presentations engage, motivate, and teach audiences effectively? If not, your presentation needs a makeover. Drawing on lessons from the corporate world and literature on learning styles and information retention, this practical program will demonstrate the three principles of designing engaging and memorable PowerPoint slides for legal instruction. Side-by-side comparison of typical, bulleted slides with "made-over" slides will empower participants to renovate existing presentations to boost interest and increase retention of key concepts. This program will feature real legal research examples where images, design and storytelling combine to craft unforgettable presentations.

K2: Collection Development Tools: From "Tried and True" to "Spiffy and New"
Target Audience: Both new and experienced law librarians whose responsibilities include collection development
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to identify and evaluate traditional tools used to help make daily collection development decisions.
2. Participants will be able to evaluate newer tools for collection development that can augment or improve their existing processes and workflows.

With every new year and each new technological marvel, the work of librarians engaged in collection development has the potential to get more complex. We are barraged with publication announcements in our e-mail inboxes, our print mailboxes and on our fax machines. Many of us also have contracts with book jobbers, subscriptions to products designed to help with collection development workflow, and a number of other individually devised schemes for locating and acquiring the right materials for our libraries, while eliminating the items that don't fit our collections. With so much information at our fingertips and so many possibilities before us, now is the perfect time to review both the fundamental "tried-and-true" tools of collection development, as well as some of the newer tools that hold great promise for streamlining our workflow to get the most comprehensive and relevant information. This program will touch on a few of the most widely used traditional tools for collection development, some of which include Books in Print, WorldCat, acquisitions listservs, and slip/approval plans. It will then move on to some of the new and exciting possibilities offered by Web 2.0, like RSS feeds for new acquisitions and collection development blogs. Participants' input on their favorite tools they currently use will be gathered and shared.

2. Participants will identify and use the essential tools to assist their patrons with treaty research.

Do you sense a relationship between the words "treaty" and "threat"? Could you use a map or a guide for your journey into treaty research? In today's rapidly globalizing world, interaction among nations is on the rise and with it, the use of treaties to address mutual concerns. Thus, treaty research is also growing in importance. This program will clarify the basic concepts of treaty formation, alert you to the challenges in treaty research and equip you with a pathfinder of essential treaty research tools.

Target Audience: All types of librarians
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will evaluate whether facilitation is appropriate for enhancing their library environment.
2. Participants will be able to list techniques for becoming successful facilitators.

Facilitation is the key to building relationships within your library organization. It promotes high-quality participation from all library staff members. If you are seeking to spark creativity, increase participation, and promote interdepartmental cooperation, incorporating facilitation into your meeting style can jump-start your library's organization. Productive meetings don't just magically happen. Facilitation is a learned skill that can enhance any meeting situation. A well-facilitated meeting seeks to reach consensus, obtain buy-in from participants and gather opinions from all members of the group. This session will describe the role of the facilitator and provide tips on how to become a successful meeting facilitator.

K6: Researching Oil and Gas Law
Target Audience: Librarians who are interested in learning about resources in the area of oil and gas law
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to identify oil and gas resources in print and online.
2. Participants will find out how to locate and use the resources described.

According to the Department of Energy, oil provides more than 40 percent of this country's energy, and more than 99 percent of fuel for vehicles. The Energy Information Administration's statistics list natural gas consumption in 2008 at 23.2 trillion cubic feet, the second highest amount on record. These numbers make it very clear that oil and gas are important parts of the entire nation's economy, not just of the economies of states with the largest deposits of them. Law librarians in academic, firm, government, and other environments need to be aware of how to conduct research in this field of law. This program will outline both primary and secondary sources concerning oil and gas law, and describe how to locate and use these materials.

Unearthed Treasures
We will start the day with a scenic drive to beautiful Idaho Springs where we stop at the Phoenix Gold Mine to experience mining history with a seasoned Colorado Hard Rock Miner. The Phoenix Mine is operated by the oldest continuous gold mining family in Colorado and you might even get to take home a little bit of Colorado gold for yourself.

After digging up the gold treasures you will head to another buried treasure known as Dinosaur Ridge, one of the world's most famous dinosaur fossil localities. In 1877, some of the first and best-known dinosaurs were discovered here. These include the Brontosaurus, Stegosaurus, and the Colorado State Fossil, the Allosaurus, representing life 145 million years ago. This stratum represents the shoreline sediments of an ancient seaway that was frequently trampled by dinosaurs and now referred to as the "Dinosaur Freeway." A stop at the visitor center is followed by a drive-by tour of the Dinosaur Ridge roadcut.

Includes: Roundtrip deluxe motorcoach transportation, professional tour guide, tour of Phoenix Gold Mine, tour of Dinosaur Ridge.
