by Ashley AhlbrandFor over twenty years, the National Legal Research Teach-In Kit has served as a source created by law librarians, for law librarians, on instruction, assessment, and other patron outreach activities. RIPS is a beautifully diverse SIS, and we’d like the Teach-In Kit to reflect that: whether you’re at an academic law library, a firm law library, a court law library, or somewhere else entirely, we all provide services to patrons, and we can all find inspiration from each other! Perhaps you offer training to summer clerks, students on journal, or research assistants; maybe you offer lectures in introductory or advanced legal research courses, or even to students outside of the law school. Your materials might be handouts, lesson plans, or today’s hottest topic: assessments! In the past we’ve had games, tutorials, and research guides. The Teach-In Kit provides an excellent channel for sharing with your colleagues and benefiting from the wealth of material colleagues have contributed in the past; and we would like to see the Kit become as diverse as our membership. But we can’t do it without YOU!
To allow more time for people to submit materials, the RIPS Teach-In Kit Committee has extended the deadline for submissions to next Friday, February 24th. We invite you to send submissions as email attachments to Annmarie Zell at ZellA@mercury.law.nyu.edu.
We thank you in advance for your contributions to this great resource!
