Webinar on the Future of Law Libraries

On June 10, 11:30 a.m. EDT, American Association of Law Libraries is sponsoring a webinar with Stephen Abram entitled Interpreting the Tea Leaves: Thinking about the Future. LLAW's own Laura La Rose of Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren S.C. in Milwaukee is also one of the speakers.

Here's more about the webinar from AALL:

The world is constantly changing, and few years have brought as much change to law firms and their libraries as the past year. Join us as we interview Stephen Abram, named by Library Journal as one of the top 50 people influencing the future of libraries, and find out how this visionary thinker gathers information, formulates predictions, and identifies what it all means for libraries. Plan to leave the session energized, and armed with ways to see more clearly into the future.
