The American Association of Law Libraries' 108th annual meeting and conference saw 1,450 attendees gather from July 18 to July 21 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia. At the opening session, keynote speaker Terry Gross (host of NPR's Fresh Air) drew parallels between the conference's theme of The Power of Connection and her own work to dig deeply into the lives of the artists she interviews. Technology Skills Law Librarians Need to Thrive was an interactive session moderated by Deborah Ginsberg (educational technology librarian at Illinois Institute of Technology's Chicago-Kent College of Law). She walked around the room encouraging attendees to share their real-life examples of the broad topics the panelists discussed. One of the conference's Hot Topic sessions, Net Neutrality and Law Librarians: It's a Good Thing, gave an overview of the history of the fight to maintain an open Internet.
