A Research Tip

  • Research & Writing

Through opportunities presented by the Canadian Association of Law Libraries and through my firm, I was able to attend the American Association of Law Libraries conference this year.  I learned some things and met a bunch of great folks, including Sarah Mauldin, Director of Library Services at Smith, Gambrell & Russell LLP who inspired this post.

I have talked about “Phone a Friend” in past tips, more than once.  While I haven’t specified reaching out to contacts in other jurisdictions, it is worth a research tip mention.

You can find excellent contacts, and make friends who like Karaoke, by attending conferences.  You can also make contacts by following the Contact Us links on websites that have teaser information or published writings that look promising.

Warm greetings to my AALL buddies.
