Movie Night with GPLLA and Jenkins

Hello Everyone,

Please join GPLLA at Jenkins for Movie Night on April 22nd from 5pm to 7pm!

Popcorn, snacks, and beverages will be provided. We will be viewing  The Hollywood Librarian:A Look at Librarians through Film.

Here is a small blub about the film and the film’s website:

The Hollywood Librarian is the first comprehensive treatment of the subject of librarians. A vivid blend of factual documentary, feature film, and storytelling, it reveals the history and realities of librarianship in the entertaining and appealing context of American movies. Interviews with actual librarians, intercut with film clips of cinematic librarians, examine such issues as literature, books and reading, censorship, library funding, citizenship and democracy. For the first time, we see and understand the real lives and real work of American librarians who for decades have been a cultural force hiding in plain sight.

http://www.hollywoodlibrarian.com/

Jenkins Law Library is located on the 12th floor of the 833 Chestnut East building, on the northeast corner of 9th and Chestnut Streets.  You will need your Jenkins Membership card to enter the elevator or be required to show ID and sign in with the guard in the building.

Please send RSVP to astetler@morganlewis.com by April 16th.

Hope to see you all there!

Save the Date:June 5th,GPLLA 2009 Annual Institute

The GPLLA Board is pleased to officially invite you all toour 2009 Institute, on Friday, June 5  at  Temple University School of Law, Schusterman Hall.    

                Shusterman Hall 1812 N. Broad Street Philadelphia, PA 19121

        

        It is located north of the main law school building (Klein Hall).  Pass Klein Hall walking north on Broad Street and turn right immediately at Montgomery Avenue.  Turn left on Liacouras Walk and proceed north past the Student Services Building.  It is located on the left, in a historic stone building.  Click here <
http://www.temple.edu/maps/documents/TUMain_map.pdf>  to view a campus map, where it is listed as building 45.  

        

        The program, which is generously sponsored by West, will feature a morning presentation by  Adam Ayer of  LicenseLogic . See the attachment for a full description of  Adam ’s program. Here’s a snippet:        

        There’s always been a spectrum of different types of uses of copyrighted works. At one extreme  there’s clear infringing activity, and at the other

extreme clear non-infringing activity.  But there’s a wide range of activities in between these extremes that occur on a daily basis that may or

may not implicate one or more of a copyright owners exclusive rights.  Many of these activities may be covered by the fair use defense, but what exactly

is considered a "fair use" is not always clear. …


        Also, a  AALL Board Member(TBA) , will speak at the Institute.

        

        This year’s afternoon program will be a one-hour interactive program  on "WhatOld is New Again" ,  moderated by Scott DeMaris, GPLLA Vice President  and Nikki Shenk, Manager, Librarian Relations at West and Dan Giancaterino, Internet Librarian at Jenkins Law Library.  All Institute attendees are requested to stay for this program. 

What’s Old is New Again

 

Nowadays, most of us are feeling pressure to keep library spending at an absolute minimum. As we’re forced to cut back on less used library resources, it’s important to get the maximum benefit from the print and electronic materials that we retain. That means it’s time to get creative! Join Scott DeMaris, GPLLA Incoming President,  Nikki Shenk, Manager, Librarian Relations at West and Dan Giancaterino, Internet Librarian for Jenkins Law Library, as they host a forum discussion about stretching library budgets to the max by instituting new uses for existing library resources. Included topics include hidden secrets in Microsoft Word, free sources on the Web and subscription extras that you didn’t know existed (and weren’t using). We encourage attendees to contribute suggestions to this open and fun discussion about getting the most mileage out of our library dollars.

         

        Admission for this program is $50 for GPLLA members/$55 for non-members/$20 for student,retired or between jobs. Breakfast and lunch will be served.

        

        If you plan to attend, please RSVP to me by Monday, May  25 . To reserve your place, we’ll need payment in advance. No payments will be collected at the Institute.

        

        Hope to see you all there!
