Canadian Association of Law Libraries 2012 Conference - Judicial Librarians Meet

Judicial libraries met over breakfast earlier this week at the annual conference of the Canadian Association of Law Libraries in Toronto.

Judicial librarians meet informally once a year at the CALL conference to exchange info about projects and concerns.

Some of the things we discussed include:
  • what kind of performance measures different libraries use
  • examples of special services we offer: examples include electronic journal table of contents services, online posting of practice notes for judges, bulletins outlining important foreign court decisions, bibliographies of academic commentary on judgments rendered, etc.
  • there was discussion of e-book trends in judicial libraries: it appears that most libraries do offer access to some e-books from different vendors but via the browser as opposed to devices of e-book readers - so far...
  • the group has been compiling a list of social media policies of different Canadian courts. This will be published later this year on the CALL website
  • During the rest of the year, I hope to post more detailed information about many of the issues listed above
