In case you missed the announcement elsewhere, the much-anticipated 2014 RIPS Teach-In Kit is now available.
The Research Instruction and Patron Services Special Interest Section is proud to announce the release of the 22nd Annual RIPS Teach-In Kit! Each year, in conjunction with National Library Week, RIPS creates a Teach-In Kit containing fresh materials for use in your institution’s promotional and instructional activities. We are pleased to celebrate the 22nd anniversary of the Teach-In Kit with a variety of new materials including research exercises, PowerPoint presentations, guides, handouts, and games that can be adapted to suit your needs. Materials cover a wide range of topics such as statutory law, secondary sources, empirical legal research, federal legislative histories, local government law, administrative law, cost-effective legal research, and much more. Notably, this year’s Kit also has a more tech savvy focus. We received materials about cloud computing, legal apps, and mobile technology which will surely have great utility in your course or presentation planning.
A big thank you to all of this year’s contributors, we would have no Kit without you! Thanks also to the Teach-In Kit Committee: Laura Ax-Fultz, Kerry Lohmeier, Shawn Nevers, Gail Partin, Becka Rich, and Anupama Pal. Special thanks to the RIPS webmaster, Maribel Nash.
