A Slice of Full Disclosure

Back by popular demand is “A Slice of Full Disclosure”, a segment of LLAM’s Spring 2012 Conference, “Full Disclosure:  Librarians Sharing Best Practices”.  You asked for it, you got it!  Last Spring, LLAM’s conference highlighted best practices of librarians.  Now, five of the many compelling sessions return to the stage on Tuesday, October 16 to offer a second dose.

An additional bonus is a special appearance by AALL’s President, Jean Wenger. Don’t miss out!

“A Slice of Full Disclosure”
Tuesday, October 16 from 12:00 – 2:00 pm
Marshall Law Library at the University of Maryland School of Law
500 W. Baltimore Street, Baltimore, MD 21201-1786
Level 4 Classroom, Room number 4403

 Featuring, LLAM’s Immediate Past-President, Sara Witman, Gordon Feinblatt, LLC, “Free Online Tools for Legal Research” – Learn about the free online tools that Sara uses regularly (sometimes unconventionally!) to make her look like she knows something about researching the law, individuals, and companies.

Michael Shochet ,University of Baltimore, Langsdale Library, “PowerPoint Doesn’t Have to Suck”-  By applying some basic principles of graphic design to slideware (such as PowerPoint),  you can make slides that are engaging and that enhance a presentation, instead of detracting from it.

Sara Thomas, Miles & Stockbridge, P.C., “Stuck in the Middle with You: Print v. Online” – Sara will discuss the present dichotomy of legal resources between the “old school” print format and the increasingly emerging electronic options and why both play an important role, both in the present and future, for our researchers and ourselves.

Jason Hawkins and Jenny Rensler, University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law, “Teaching Technologies for Legal Research Instruction” – This presentation will introduce selected multimedia technologies that support legal research instruction. Participants will discover tools and techniques for using these technologies to create innovative user-centered lessons, applicable in both formal classroom settings, and information settings at the “point of need.”

Wendy Maines, Thomson Reuters Westlaw, “Library Yogi” – In this mini Office Yogi session, an RYT-200 yoga teacher will move you through some simple poses.  These postures can be performed at your desk to ease common workplace discomforts such as carpal tunnel, tight shoulders, and low back issues. Wendy will discuss a corresponding handout that can be posted on an intranet/portal so that your patrons may also benefit.
