Grants, Law Books List, Webinar Training … oh my!

Yes it’s that time of year again: the LawMattesr grants offers will be going out in March to the directors of your library systems … I will also be sending out the updated Law Books for Libraries (LBL) list! For those of you who may not be familiar, the LBL list is your guide to help make collections decisions.

Speaking of collections decisions … I am trying a little something different this year –

With the release of the grant offers and the LBL, I am also offering a webinar:

“Legal Collections 101"

March 8
12:30pm-1:30pm

Whether you have been handling your library’s legal collection for a while, or you are new to collecting legal materials, tune in to learn more about:

  • Using the LBL
  • An overview of what you can expect from different legal publishers
  • Tips for selecting legal titles

I will also be producing a couple more collections guides to help get you started!



As part of LawMatters, I want to make sure that you have the choice in deciding what legal materials are right for your library and your community – and that you have the tools to make these decisions. I hope that providing these guides and this webinar will help make using the grant and collecting legal materials easier!
