During the week of April 10-16, National Library Week, the Brooklyn Law School Library is conducting a Library Survey to measure library service quality and identify best practices. BLS students and other library patrons are encouraged to take the survey and add their input to help the librarians at BLS better serve them.
National Library Week began more than 50 years ago when research showed that Americans were spending less on books and more on radios, televisions and musical instruments. The first National Library Week was observed in 1958 with the theme “Wake Up and Read!” This year, noted lawyer John Grisham, author of many legal thrillers including The Firm (Call # PS3557.R53 F57 1991), is Honorary Chair. See the video featuring him talking about libraries at the ALA Annual Conference in Washington.
To commermorate National Library Week this year, the American Association of Law Libraries’ Research Instruction and Patron Services Special Interest Section published its 19th Annual Legal Research Teach-In Kit on a variety of topics including health and medical law, animal law and Google Scholar.
