American and Canadian Law Librarians Share Instructional Materials
Contributions of instructional materials are sent in by law librarians from around the United States, including:
- course syllabi
- research guides
- lecture notes
- lesson plans
- PowerPoint shows
- basic instructional guides
- examinations and guided quizzes
- crossword puzzles and trivia quizzes
The RIPS website has a list of material from previous years. The first teach-in was organized in 1993.
On a smaller scale, the Courthouse and Law Society Libraries Special Interest Group of the Canadian Association of Law Libraries is asking for Canadian law librarians to share their instructional materials for listing in the Group's section on the CALL website. An e-mail request has already been sent out via the CALL listserv.
The idea is to develop as comprehensive as possible a list or database of tutorials on Canadian and non-Canadian legal research topics. Law libraries would retain any copyright in their material and have the option of determining how it could be reused.
