Law Library Outreach

I love reading about library outreach, a topic critical, in my opinion, to the survival of any library.  As I was scanning through the AALL Spectrum issues sent to me in my welcome packet from AALL, I came across this article about Northern Kentucky University’s Chase College of Law’s outreach efforts.  Staff here acknowledged what I think is easily forgotten: law libraries are not always the first place patrons go for legal research questions.  Therefore, the librarians at NKU’s law library provided a series of outreach programs to library staff at surrounding public libraries, to great success.  I will leave it to you to read the article, but what a fantastic, and worthwhile, outreach endeavor, one that will hopefully inspire copycats the country over!
