SLA Conference – award winner

I’m delighted to announce that I have won the Special Libraries Association, Legal Division’s early career award this year. As a result I shall attend the SLA annual conference in Phoenix, Arizona. I’ve been to the States a couple of times, but never to a conference there, so I am very much looking forward to networking with our colleagues across the pond.

I took a chance applying for the Legal Division award as I am not a traditional law librarian – however, I went for it as I believe that I can bring a unique perspective of legal information training and management from an academic library perspective. I plan to fly the flag for copyright and intellectual property! I hope also to learn a great deal from law librarians from a variety of backgrounds.

I shall post more in due course, and in the meantime I wish to thank the SLA, SLA Europe, and the Legal Division for this wonderful career opportunity.
