Registration is open for SharePoint: A Look Inside One Law Firm

SharePoint can improve work processes and streamline team-related tasks, adding value to your firm/organization. Please join Catherine Monte, chief knowledge officer at Fox Rothschild LLP, and Misti Conway, director of library services at Fox Rothschild, for a webinar on February 28 at 11 a.m. (CST). Learn how to harness this technology for creating custom pages without coding experience. Panelists will share examples of how they are directly involved with intranet development, not only in creating research pages, but also in creating team sites to increase efficiency for collection development, competitive intelligence, general project/task management, and reporting/ROI. Find out how you can do the same – register by February 21.

Submit Your Photos for the 2013 Day in the Life Photo Contest

The AALL Day in the Life of the Law Library Community Photo Contest is now accepting submissions! Through February 28, AALL members are invited to take a wide range of photographs of law librarians working, meeting, teaching, and doing all that law librarians do in a given day.

Entries will be judged online through membership voting in April. Winners will be recognized on AALLNET, in the July issue of AALL Spectrum, and during the AALL Annual Meeting in Seattle.

As in past years, the contest is being conducted on Flickr, so you can see submissions as they are posted by other members. Visit the site for complete contest rules.

AALL2go Pick of the Month

AALL’s Continuing Professional Education Committee presents the AALL2go pick of the month: Glass Half Full? Explore Techniques for Putting Optimism to Work as a Management Tool in Difficult Times.

Law librarians have been dealing with some difficult times at work, in the profession, and on the homefront for the past several years. These economic times have prompted us to have more management discussions than ever before. This presentation by Gail Warren and Jean Holcomb helps prepare the library director/manager to deal with pessimistic focus. The program helps identify three elements of the “explanatory style” after completing a model assessment tool. Learn some techniques for challenging pessimistic thinking and building a positive operating framework. You will discover strategies for strengthening your personal resilience and decision-making skills, leading to a happier and more productive life in the office and at home.
