It happens all too often. You get a call from someone higher up on the food chain in your organization, be it a director, faculty member, or partner, requesting that you give a presentation the next day about some specialized legal research topic.
Everyone knows how this scenario plays out. You run around like crazy trying to pull something together in time. But what if you didn’t have to spend the night before your presentation stressed? What if you had a collection of your law librarian colleagues’ instructional materials right at your fingertips to browse, adapt, and reuse?
This is not a fantasy—now this is reality. AALL offers two high-quality resources from which you can benefit. One is an innovative development from the Academic Law Libraries Special Interest Section (ALLSIS): the Legal Research Sourcebook. The other is a time-tested favorite: the Research Instruction and Patron Services Special Interest Section (RIPS-SIS) Teach-In Resource Kit.
