Switching Library Settings

Switching Library Settings Recap

On Wednesday, January 25, CALL’s Mentorship and Continuing Education Committees jointly hosted a lunchtime event at Jenner & Block LLP entitled “Switching Library Settings.”  Moderated by Ben Brighoff, the event featured a panel of CALL members, including Annie Mentkowski, Valerie Carullo, JoAnn Hounshell, and Katie Leonard.  Each of the panelists shared their experiences and advice on transitioning from one law library setting to another, whether it be from academia to government, academia to legal information vendor, academia to law firm, or law firm to legal information vendor.  Although each of the panelists shared unique insights, a common sentiment expressed by each was the value, when considering a move, of networking and being involved with professional organizations.  Including the panelists, 26 CALL members attended the event, including several members new to our organization and the law library profession.
