Recruiting The Right Candidate, Cynthia Bassett

Faculty Publications

The market for hiring a law librarian has changed significantly over the last few years. Those on both sides of the equation are a little uncertain about the whole process, wondering when the job search should start, how much to expect in pay, and what aspects of a position are up for discussion. The challenge of a limited pipeline of law librarians requires new approaches to recruiting.

The 80/20 Rule For Legal Research, Olivia R. Smith Schlink 2023 Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law

The 80/20 Rule For Legal Research, Olivia R. Smith Schlink

Library Staff Online Publications

A few semesters ago I was discussing the value of secondary sources with a student when they paused to think, then described secondary sources as “kind of like the 80/20 Rule, but different.” I’d never heard of the 80/20 Rule, but I jotted it down onto a Post-It note to look into later. Fast-forward to today and I now introduce my students to what I’ve dubbed “the 80/20 Rule for Legal Research” in all classes about secondary sources.

New school year, new organizational strategy!—that’s how the saying goes, right?

I’m one of those people who finds unending joy in starting a new organizational scheme. Particularly if there’s a pretty, flowery, probably too-expensive paper planner involved. And at the beginning of the school year? *chef’s kiss*

Discussion Dens are consistently among my favorite programs at the AALL Annual Meeting, and Leslie Street’s Book Bans, Academic Freedom, and the Academic Law Library discussion was truly a highlight of AALL 2023.

As seems to be the new normal, there is a lot happening in the news (*gestures vaguely around*).

But there is one issue that keeping tabs on feels like a professional obligation: book banning.
