2nd Annual Law Librarian “Un-Run”
This year’s AALL Un-Run (unsponsored fun run) was organized by fellow LLAM member John Cannan. Both runners and walkers enjoyed the route from the convention center to Philadelphia Museum of Art. The run culminated with a run up the Art Museum steps…just like Rocky! Several LLAM members participated including Janet Camillo (and Larry), Jean Hessenauer and Joanne Colvin.
Sara Thomas welcomed Ashlynn Brooke Thomas on February 8, 2011. She weighed 7lbs 11oz and measured 21 inches.
AALL Committee Appointment
Kirstin Nelson has been appointed to the AALL Recruitment to Law Librarianship Committee for a 2 year term. The Recruitment Committee works to encourage qualified candidates to enter the profession of law librarianship. Efforts include outreach to library and law school career centers, publishing pamphlets, speaking at open houses and more.
MSLL Welcomes New Staff
Maryland State Law Library recently welcomed two new staff members. Pam Luby is the library’s new part-time Research Librarian. Sara Marks is the Fiscal Services Coordinator and is taking over many of the duties handled by Bernice Bernstein.
Lazun Earns Paralegal Certification
Mary Jo Lazun completed her paralegal certification at Anne Arundel Community College. She will be teaching two continuing educational classes for attorneys and paralegals this fall.
Hawkins Joins TMLL as Research Librarian
Jason Hawkins started August 15 as Research Librarian at University of Maryland, Thurgood Marshall Law Library. Jason was formerly at George Washington University Law School’s Jacob Burns Law Library. We welcome Jason as a new LLAM member.
New Co-webmasters of LLAM Website
Jenny Rensler has joined Mary Jo Lazun as co-webmaster of the LLAM website this year, and she has added navigation links from the LLAM website to the LLAM newsletter pages for improved access to “LLAM-formation.” Since earning her J.D. in the spring, this fall she is enjoying teaching 30 students in her first course of Advanced Legal Research at the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law. She survived Irene: a 30-foot tree in front of her Riva townhome fell, but fortunately did not damage any property during the hurricane. She and her husband Matt are preparing to move from downtown Baltimore to the Annapolis area this fall in order to be near their families and to ease his commute to work. Now that she will have a commute to work, she is looking forward to catching up on her “reading” with “books on CD” from the library!
