Canadian Association of Law Libraries Webinar Series
Thursday, January 21st, 2016
10:00am - 11:30am
Question for the cataloguers out there - how are you treating the CLE Course Materials and Webinar Archives?
We have been cataloguing to the individual paper level until now - this month and last month I noticed that there were often only 1 or 2 papers included in a course, whereas there are multiple sessions linked in the Webinar Archives (see the Expert Evidence - 2015 for an example: 1 paper, 7 webinars).
As the webinars are very well indexed, I see a value in cataloguing to the individual webinar level as well. Is anyone else doing this?
Any thoughts, suggestions, and opinions are welcome. And thank you!
The following content is now available on the BC Laws site:

Please join VALL for our November seminar “The Art of Speaking for Success” where guest speaker Dorothea Hendriks will cover the topic of effective communication and delivery of our message to management, peers, lawyers, in training, and with vendors.
In this workshop we look at:
- Engaging your listener without handcuffs
- Basic body language dos and don’ts
- Art of asking questions
- Communication styles
- Attitude and action
Dorothea Hendriks provides professionals with the tools they need to increase their confidence levels, express ideas with greater clarity and impact others with their message.
An educator and former instructor at Vancouver Community College, she has presented to over 5,000 people, delivering workshops, keynotes and coaching sessions focused on speaking and presentation skills.
Dorothea is the owner of Art of Speaking for Success and Presentation Skills Inc. and passionate about helping people experience the benefits of becoming more effective communicators.
This seminar will also be the last of 2015 so we encourage you to come see some old friends and new colleagues before the rush of Christmas descends.

The rate at which information is created in the modern world is astonishing. 90% of the world's data has been generated in the past two years! This explosive pace is quickly exceeding our ability to manage legal information using traditional management models. The need to collaborate around the preservation of and access to legal information has never been more apparent.
