My trip began bright and early at the Chapter Summit program. Some of the day’s events involved member recruitment, retention, and engagement, and why change is an opportunity. Setting the stage is the AALL Mission:

AALL Mission

“The American Association of Law Libraries advances the profession of law librarianship and supports the professional growth of its members through leadership and advocacy in the field of legal information and information policy.”


Task Codes

A program on law firm pricing featured this slide, law firm librarians were in stitches.


The Thomson Reuter’s member appreciation event was a hoot. A live band played whilst instructors lead librarian line-dancing. Apparently in all the years of teaching they had never had a group take the initiative and start dancing before the instructors were ready. We were labelled “over achievers”.


The look of determination and fun as librarians dance. Can you spot the LLOPSter?

Post-Dancing Events

Post-dancing events included the National Anthem, barrell racing, and fireworks.

Chinese Lion Dance

Lexis’ appreciation event also included dancing, at Institute of Texan Cultures, where a Chinese Lion Dance entertained the crowd.


Live soccer was found in multiple booths at the exhibit hall. Moreover, program presenters paused mid-lecture to announce scores.


I can’t remember what this building is.


Our table with treats dubbed “LLOPS Pops”. Hindsight being 20/20 a Seahawks theme would have been perfect!

What better way to spend the last day than with your colleagues from home.

Kelly's Poster

Kerry’s poster is not only educational but it is designed well, holding a modern art feel.


Inspired by Seattle’s Space Needle (1962), San Antonio constructed the Tower of the Americas (1966) for their 1968 World’s Fair.Tower
