GPLLA Fall Program

Greetings GPLLA members!

We would like to welcome you to attend our Fall Program, which will feature a narrative bibliography by John Cannan, Reference Librarian at Earle Mack School of Law’s Legal Research Center.

Topic:

A Legislative History of the Affordable Care Act

“Legislative procedure dictates what documents are available in legislative history. While the use of legislative procedures is dynamic (i.e., legislators continually develop new uses for old rules), traditional legislative history is static. As a result, legislative history researchers may be missing documents and looking for documents where they do not exist. This talk uses the health care legislation of 2009-2010 to show how legislative history is done now and how it differs from the traditional model.  It will also discuss resources law librarians need to know to understand and communicate modern legislative history.” –John Cannan

When:                  November 1,  5:30-7:30PM

Where:                 Jenkins Law Library Multi Purpose Room

833 Chestnut Street Philadelphia, PA 19107

 

Please RSVP to Sunita Balija at svb24@drexel.edu by Thursday, October 25.

 

We hope to see you there!

GPLLA Program: Copyright and You.

Please join your colleagues on Wednesday, October 19, at Jenkins Law Library for the program: Copyright and You: An Informal Round Table on Copyright and Your Library

This program will be co-hosted by GPLLA and Tony Landau of Reprints Desk.  Mr. Landolt has been in the document delivery world for over 25 years. In 2001, he started-up and ran a successful document delivery company called Pinpoint Documents.  In 2007, he sold his company to Reprints Desk, where he is currently a Sales Director.  Tony is an active member in many library organizations, including the American Association of Law Librarians (AALL) and the Special Libraries Association (SLA).  He is currently a part of the SLA leadership and the convener of the SLA Baseball Caucus. 

He will be leading an informal discussion about sharing our stories on copyright issues and how copyright affects us all in the law library field.  We will also be discussing solutions and ways to effectively prevent copyright violations. 

The roundtable is to take place at Jenkins Law Library. Located at 833 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA from 12pm-1pm.  The discussion will begin promptly at noon.  Beverages and dessert will be served, and brown bag lunches are encouraged.
