What’s New with LLAM Members

Goodbye, Janet…

Janet Sinder is leaving the Thurgood Marshall Law Library at the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law. Janet has been the Associate Director for Research Services at TMLL since 2004. She is leaving to become the Director of the Library and Associate Professor of Law at Brooklyn Law School on May 1.

Janet became the editor of Law Library Journal in July 2007 and will continue in that role as she moves to her new job.

Janet is “sorry to be leaving the LLAM community, with all its great law librarians, but looking forward to living and working in New York City.”

Congratulations and good luck!


AALL/LLAM Grants for Annual Meeting/Conference

Each year, on a rotating basis, AALL provides grants to members of local chapters to cover registration for the Annual Meeting.  In 2011 it is LLAM’s turn to have a member receive a AALL grant for the Annual Meeting, to be held in Philadelphia from July 23-26.  To make the grant even more appealing, LLAM is adding $500 to AALL’s registration grant to help cover the cost of transportation/hotel/meals at the conference.

To apply for the grant, you must fill out an application and return it to the LLAM Grants & Awards Committee by Wednesday, April 4, 2012.  Applicants must be members of AALL and LLAM at the time of their application.  A committee consisting of Jean Hessenauer, Mark Desierto, and Jim Gernert will review all of the applications, and let the grant recipient know of his/her selection by April 8, 2011.

For more information, or to request a copy of the application, contact Jim Gernert at jgernert@yahoo.com, or (410) 965-6107.  You can also find a copy of the application on LLAM’s website at http://www.aallnet.org/chapter/llam/llamgrantapplication2011.doc.
