                    CHICAGO   ASSOCIATION   OF   LAW   LIBRARIES

Number 31                                                                May. 1961


                          ANNUAL MEETING - A. A. L. L.

          We're off to Boston--the land of the bean and the cod. The Annual Meet-
ing of the American Association of Law Libraries will be held at the Sheraton-Plaza
Hotel in Boston from June 26 to the 29th. The committee is very busily preparing
a program that will be of interest to all. We hope that we shall have a very good
representation from Chicago.

          The American Association of Law Libraries will convene at Harvard for a
week prior to the Annual Meeting (June 19-23) to participate in their form of con-
tinuing professional education--the Fifth Biennial Law Librarians Institute. The
topic of the 1961 Institute is of interest to librarians and lawyers--THE LITERATURE
OF THE LAW--TECHNIQUES OF ACCESS. General lectures and demonstration sessions will
cover:

          Legal Research--An Historical Perspective
          Literature of Law--Contemporary Law Book Publishing
          Access to Law--Data Processing and the Future
          Access to Books in the Law Library

          The general sessions will be supplemented by a series of more intensive
discussions of specific problems relating to sources of the law and research tech-
niques. You or your librarian may direct inquiries about the Institute or any
resultant publications to Earl C. Borgeson, Harvard Law School Library, Cambridge 38,
Massachusetts.

          Also prior to the A. A. L. L. Annual Meeting, the two-year-old Interna-
tional Association of Law Libraries will meet at Harvard, June 24-25. Delegates
to the meeting will consider the role of the Association in facilitating the ex-
change of foreign publications and will hear about a variety of subjects including:

          Establishing and Developing World Law Libraries
          Improving American Law Collections in American Libraries Abroad
          Foreign Law Collections in American Libraries

ant Law Librarian, has been invited to attend the Annual Meeting of the Association
of German Research Librarians at Munich, May 23-27, where he will read a paper on
