The Evolving Roles of Law Librarians as Education Specialists - Part I
In U.S. law schools, librarians have been among the vanguard seeking to bring evidence-based teaching methods and cutting-edge technology to the legal academy. When the spread of COVID-19 forced law schools to abruptly shift to remote operations, law librarians were poised not only to adapt their own teaching and services but to play a crucial role in supporting the work of their institutions as a whole. Law libraries provided the technical expertise and information resources needed to keep students and faculty on track, while also modeling what innovative, engaging, and adaptive teaching could look like in law schools.

As law schools look to a post-pandemic future, librarians should be prepared to consolidate these gains and further extend their reach into advancing law school teaching and technology, both inside their individual institutions and the legal academy at large. The first half of this panel will discuss the ways in which law librarians have deepened their engagement with law school teaching and curricular design before and during the pandemic and provide suggestions for how to broaden their impact going forward. The second half of the panel will discuss how to provide the most cost-effective and efficient virtual reference services, while simultaneously creating a more interactive, welcoming atmosphere to library website users. This interactive program will ask participants to reflect on their own innovations in teaching and technology and engage as a group to share ideas.
