Libraries and Access to Justice Webinar Series

2012 September 26
by Christina Manz

ProBono.net presents the Libraries and Access to Justice Webinar Series, a 4-part series of free Thursday webinars to develop librarians’ abilities to serve their communities with access to legal resources.

With a surge in the number of people seeking assistance for issues with a legal dimension, partnerships between access to justice organizations and the libraries in their communities are more important than ever. With funding from a Legal Services Corporation Technology Initiative (TIG) grant, Pro Bono Net is producing four national training webinars for librarians. The goal of the series is to increase awareness among librarians and community stakeholders about online access to justice resources that are available to them, how librarians can access and utilize those resources to better educate and assist their patrons with legal needs, and models for legal aid-library collaborations to connect people with legal information.

The webinars are free, and attendees are welcome to join for the entire series or attend individual webinars on topics of interest. The webinars will be recorded and made available online afterward, along with all presentation materials.
