Updates from the State Law Library of Mississippi

The State Law Library of Mississippi has signed a Preservation Steward Agreement with the United States Government Publishing Office.  Under this agreement, the Library pledges to permanently preserve its print collections of the United States Reports, Statutes at Large, and Public Papers of the President.  The Preservation Steward Program was developed by GPO to support continued public access to historic government documents in print in the digital era.  All depository libraries are invited to participate in the Preservation Steward Program.  GPO also welcomes the opportunity to discuss possible partnerships with non-depository libraries.  For more information on this and other preservation opportunities, visit https://www.fdlp.gov/preservation/preservation-at-gpo

The Southeastern Chapter of the American Association of Law Libraries (SEAALL) has selected Jackson, MS as the host city of its 2020 Annual Meeting.  Stephen Parks, State Librarian at the State Law Library of Mississippi, submitted the proposal in late 2017 with the announcement of Jackson’s selection being made in early 2018.  The SEAALL Annual Meeting was last in Mississippi in 1990 when Oxford hosted the program with the theme of “An Anthology of Issues Facing Law Librarians.”  Comprising over 500 individuals from eleven Southeastern states and Puerto Rico, SEAALL is an official chapter of the American Association of Law Libraries with its members coming from court, law firm, corporate, and academic law libraries.  The three day conference, to be held in April 2020, will involve education sessions, workshops, library tours, and receptions.
