On November 20-21, 2008, the Law School and the Coleman Karesh Law Library held a conference entitled, The Law Librarianís Role in the Scholarly Enterprise. Approximately 50 law librarians from around the U.S. attended and discussed how law librarians can improve and support legal scholarship in light of technological advances. Stanley Katz, Professor at Princeton University, delivered the Keynote address focusing on the librarianís core intellectual skill of selecting materials and building collections (both electronic and print) to support faculty scholarship. Other presentations focused on the use of bibliographic management software to manage scholarship, the instructional role of librarians in improving information competency in the age of the internet, a call for a formal institutional scholarly role of a ďprofessional research associateĒ within law libraries, and a discussion of librarian status within the academy.

Video of the presentations are available on this web page. Selected papers will be published in a future issue of the Journal of Law and Education.
