In this economic climate, it seems like more people are taking it upon themselves to find answers to their legal questions. If you’re a reference librarian in need of a refresher on legal resources, we have a great program for you on March 4!
Attorney Teri Ross will demonstrate the features of the Illinois Legal Aid website and show librarians how to assist their patrons in accessing legal information. She will also provide a brief explanation of the legal services delivery system in Illinois and discuss ethical considerations when providing legal information to the public. In the second part of the program Steven Jablonski of Skokie Public Library will speak about other online resources that every librarian should know about for locating legal cases and codes, looking up attorneys, and finding user-friendly explanations of the law.
More information about this program can be found on the upcoming programs page.
Make sure you register online now!
