  • Improve neighborhood access to healthy food,
  • Protect the environment and improve the watershed,
  • Develop Baltimore’s agriculture sector, and
  • Provide hands-on education opportunities for Baltimore’s youth.

Maryland Library Legislative Day, Join Us on February 14th!

Maryland Library Legislative Day
Join us on February 14th!

Maryland Library Legislative Day is an opportunity for LLAM members to join with librarians and library supporters across the state to build support for Maryland libraries! This is our chance to connect with our elected delegates and senators to advocate for library issues.

Sponsored by the Maryland Library Association (MLA), this year’s Maryland Library Legislative Day will focus on two proposed bills.

  • SB137 HB 165– Maryland Uniform Electronic Legal Materials Act (UELMA) – These cross-filed bills provide for access, authentication, and preservation of specified online state legal materials that have been deemed official. UELMA takes a technology-neutral, outcomes-based approach to ensure that official online legal materials will have the same level of trustworthiness as official print publications.
  • SB 587– Education – Libraries – Reorganization of Governance Structure – This proposed bill calls for the establishment of the Maryland State Library Agency and Maryland State Library Board. The newly established Maryland State Library Agency will, among other things, assume the duties and responsibilities of the Library Development and Services, which is currently within the purview of the State Department of Education.

Schedule:

8:00am – Continental Breakfast and Current Issues Briefing

Anne Arundel County Circuit Court Library

Enjoy breakfast, compliments of LLAM, as MLA’s legislative panel briefs participants on current library issues and talking points for senator/delegate visits. Briefing packets will be provided.

9:15am – Senate and House Presentations

State House (walking distance from Anne Arundel County Circuit Court Library)

Kathleen Teaze (MLA President), Irene Padilla (State Librarian), Cathy Dixon (CALD President), and Jay Bansbach (MSDE School Libraries Program Specialist) will present on the floor of the Senate and the House.

At the conclusion, participants are free to go to lunch and make delegation visits. A variety of restaurants are within walking distance of the State House and Circuit Court Library.

3:30pm – Citizens for Maryland Libraries Annual Meeting

Anne Arundel County Circuit Court Library, Large Conference Room

All are welcome to CML’s annual meeting.

UELMA 2017 – Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee Hearing

uelmahearingOn Thursday, January 26, 2017, the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee held a committee hearing on SB 137, the Maryland Uniform Legal Materials Act (UELMA). Sponsored by Senators Susan C. LeeBrian J. Feldman, and William C. Smith, Jr., SB 137 provides for access, authentication, and preservation of specified online state legal materials that have been deemed official. UELMA takes a technology-neutral, outcomes-based approach to ensure that official online legal materials will have the same level of trustworthiness as official print publications.

Thursday’s hearing at the Miller Senate Building presented the public with an opportunity to provide input on the proposed bill. Following an introduction by Senator Lee, four speakers testified in support of UELMA: Brian Lewis, on behalf of the Uniform Law Commission; Steven Anderson, on behalf of the American Association of Law Libraries; Joan Bellistri, on behalf of LLAM; and Mary Jo Lazun, on behalf of LLAM. Each speaker addressed how UELMA will ensure Marylanders’ access to the law. In addition to sharing their prepared remarks, the speakers answered questions from the committee. At the end of the hearing for SB 137, Vice Chair Delores G. Kelley complimented the panel on their preparedness.

SB 137 is cross-filed with HB 165. This week, the House Health and Government Operations Committee will hold its hearing on UELMA on Wednesday, February 1st at 3:00 p.m. We need your support! Contact your local delegates and senators to show your support for UELMA.

Please mark your calendar for Tuesday, February 14, 2017 for Maryland Library Legislative Day! Law Librarians are needed to visit their legislators to advocate for UELMA and other issues important to Maryland libraries. The Anne Arundel County Circuit Court Law Library will be hosting librarians and library supporters from across the state, and LLAM will provide participants with a continental breakfast starting at 8:00 am. We hope to see you there! (More details later.)

Upcoming LLAM Program: A talk with the creator of the Supreme Court Mapping Project, Colin Starger

10-19-16-llam-program-announcement-image

Access to Justice gets high-tech!

Colin Starger, University of Baltimore law professor and honoree of 2014’s Fastcase 50, will talk about his Supreme Court Mapping Project.

Starger’s SCOTUS Mapping Project has created an innovative and free online tool to aid Supreme Court scholarship. This sophisticated mapping tool graphically visualizes and organizes citation networks between Supreme Court cases so that researchers can track Supreme Court precedent over time.

This project is part of the Free Law Project, which aims to provide free access to legal materials and research tools for those who can’t afford expensive databases like Lexis or Westlaw.

Check the tool out for yourself @ https://www.courtlistener.com/visualizations/scotus-mapper/

Congratulations to Dr. Carla Hayden

The United States Senate today voted to confirm Dr. Carla D. Hayden as the 14th Librarian of Congress. LLAM President Charles A. Pipins II issued the following statement:

“LLAM thanks the Senate for confirming Dr. Hayden as the nation’s next Librarian of Congress. As CEO of the Enoch Pratt Free Library for more than 20 years, Dr. Hayden demonstrated her vision and commitment to serving the people of Maryland and bringing the historic Enoch Pratt into the modern age.  I am confident that under her exceptional guidance the Library of Congress will establish itself as a leader on information policy issues and provide cutting edge services and top-notch programs to Congress and the American People. LLAM congratulates Dr. Hayden on this historic achievement and we look forward to supporting the Library of Congress under her leadership.”
