The latest issue of the Minnesota Association of Law Libraries’ MALL Newsletter contains a number of announcements. Most notably, the Publications Committee is beginning a project to update a history of MALL and collect oral histories from both long-time and new members. This project is in preparation for MALL’s 60th anniversary in 2015. The Publications Committee also produces two online resources, A Guide to Major Law Library Collections in the Twin Cities and the Internet Guide for Minnesota Legal Reference.
A column on upcoming events lists a number of interesting professional development opportunities, including National Information Standards Organization webinars on acquiring and preserving e-books and making sense of usage statistics. The Association of College and Research Libraries is also holding webinars on virtual reference services and improving Google Scholar indexing of institutional repositories.
