Abstract

The visit to American academic law libraries was conducted between 26 June and 18 July 1993 My itinerary included attendance at the American Association of Law Librarians (AALL) Conference as well as the workshop Moving Forward Reconceptualizing Resources and Services in Recessionary Times The university libraries visited included Hastings, Stanford, Berkeley, Chicago-Kent, Harvard, Northeastern, Northwestern and Chicago. The purpose of my visit was primarily to learn how academic law libraries are employing information technology in innovative ways, be it with respect to networking, scanning, the teaching of legal research, electronic communications and publishing Also I wanted to see how these changes are affecting library design, changing roles of library staff, services offered and how finances are being redirected.
