N E L L C O L a w L i b r a r y C on s o r t i u m COLLABORATE V A L U E COMMUNICATE INNOVATE EDUCATE It all adds up. A s I begin my 2-year term as NELLCO President I am excited at what lies ahead for us Legal education and information are transforming before our eyes and law libraries must respond in new ways. Through the power of collaboration NELLCO members are able to minimize duplication of effort across libraries and devote more time and money to serving the unique needs of their own communities. Over the past two years the Board of Directors focused on planning for the future of collaboration among member libraries. Using a process called scenario planning we established these six areas of strategic focus for NELLCO in the coming years Find Common Ground Provide Training Incubate Innovation Broker Expertise Expand Service Broaden Collaboration These will serve as our guideposts during my presidency and beyond. NELLCO members already collaborate on projects and programs in each of these areas many of which you will read about in this report. We welcome your participation in these endeavors and look forward to continuing to serve our members A L E TT E R F R O M O UR P R E SI D E N T Sarah Hooke Lee President of NELLCO Associate Dean for Research and Information Services Northeastern University School of Law N ELLCO is an international consortium of law libraries. By working together through this unique consortium our member libraries are able to achieve much more than they could independently. Over the course of our 30-plus-year history NELLCO has proven its value to members in four vital realms collaboration communication innovation and education. NELLCO member libraries collaborate to make the most of their fixed resources communicate It all adds up. effectively using the most up-to-date technologies innovate by undertaking cutting edge projects and programs and educate our members by helping them to discover and disseminate new ideas. From our origins as a regional cooperative network of just 15 New England law libraries NELLCO now has more than 120 member libraries across the United States as well as in Australia Canada and the United Kingdom. A nimble dynamic member-driven organization the NELLCO whole adds up to much more than the sum of our parts. Whats in Our Name NELLCOs value to members has increased exponentially as weve grown from a regional to an international consortium. The NELLCO nameoriginally New England Law Library Consortium Inc.has been an ongoing subject of discussion for some time. In the mid-2000s the Board of Directors approved a subtle name change adopting NELLCO as the consor- tiums doing business as DBA name. In 2014 following a series of member sur- veys the NELLCO Board of Directors unanimously approved a formal legal name changefrom New England Law Library Consortium Inc. to NELLCO Law Library Consortium Inc. Our new name retains the acronym upon which our reputation was built while relinquishing the regional identification that threatens to limit our current scope and identity. The Whole is Greater NELLC 1 C O L L AB O RAT E Collaboration is NELLCOs raison detre. Its at the heart of everything we do. NELLCO libraries collaborate to maximize resources and support the missions of our institutions. Were at the front lines of collaboration between and among law libraries. N ELLCO was established to help member libraries save money through resource sharing and collaboration. In the early days cost avoidance came in large part through reciprocal interlibrary loan agreements. Those agreements remain in effect today but the technology and electronic information boom of the last 20 years has created new opportunities for library collaboration. Group acquisitions on behalf of member libraries are a significant piece of consortium work today. Aggregating buyers allows us to negotiate the best possible prices on information resources and other library-related goods and services. But the value of collaborative acquisitions goes beyond the negotiated discounts. Savings also come from efficiencies related to human resources. An enormous amount of staff time is saved for both consortium members and information providers publishers and vendors by centralizing the work establishing a trial negotiating price negotiating license terms and conditions billing and renewals and creating a single point of contact at the consortium level. NELLCO members collaborate beyond the group purchasing function to realize even greater benefits. We are constantly scanning the horizon and our members are keenly attuned to activities and technologies that are ripe for collaboration. All of the projects that NELLCO undertakes create opportunities for members to realize NELLCOs core mission of collaboration. Buying power and beyond. 2 NELLCO is collaboration. Law librarians have always worked together to improve access to legal information and NELLCOs accomplishments demonstrate how we can achieve so much more through our collective efforts than we can working individually. Paul M. George Associate Dean and Director of Biddle Law Library University of Pennsylvania Law School Philadelphia PA NEW YORK March 19 2014 The New York Times and NELLCO an international consortium of academic and government law libraries have come together to offer unlimited digital access to NYTimes.com to law schools around the country including Harvard Law School University of Pennsylvania Law School Yale Law School American Universitys Washington College of Law and The Brigham Young Universitys Law School. In what is The New York Timess largest education digital access agreement to date all 110 U.S.- based academic NELLCO members have an opportunity to provide unlimited NYTimes.com access to the entire student body faculty and administrators on campus at the NELLCO group rate. Participants will receive their own personal log-in granting them one year of access to New York Times content on the web and across smartphone apps which include The Timess core news apps on iPhone Android Windows Phone and BlackBerry10. This collaboration with NELLCO marks a major milestone for The New York Times as we continue to expand our digital offerings to individuals at an organizational level said Yasmin Namini chief consumer officer The New York Times. Access to The Timess world-class journalism on our expanding digital platforms provides the participating students and faculty with the insight and analysis they need to enrich their curricula and overall learning experience. NELLCO is thrilled to be working with The New York Times to make affordable digital access available to law schools across the country. This is a win not only for NELLCO member institutions but also for members of the Mid-America Law Library Consortium MALLCO said Tracy L. Thompson executive director New England Law Library Consortium NELLCO. Together NELLCO and MALLCO represent more than half of the law schools in the U.S. The New York Times remains an important resource for our students faculty and staff and we are proud to be part of the effort to connect the next generation of readers to the next generation of The New York Times. Yale Law School Among Participating NELLCO Consortium Members to Offer Unlimited Digital Access to NYTimes.com Web Smart Phone Apps THEN Early collaborations were focused on reciprocal resource sharing and access agreements. NOW Those early efforts built a foundation of trust that allows todays members to collaborate on many fronts. 3 PRESS RELEASE t h en N o w C O m m u n i cAT E Information overload has made communication a double-edged sword. NELLCO works diligently to curate information and deliver it to members and stakeholders efficiently. Interest Groups O ne way NELLCO members communicate with one another is through their participation in NELLCO Interest Groups. There are four primary Interest Groups loosely aligned with typical library infrastructures Acquisitions and Collection Development Reference Interlibrary Loan and Informational Technology. Library staff members at NELLCO institutions self- identify and are free to participate in any or all of these groups as their needs and interests dictate. All of the groups have the opportunity to meet face-to- face at least once each year at the Annual NELLCO Symposium. Technology Between symposia NELLCO facilitates communication between and among members by using communication and collaboration technology solutions. Web-based meeting software Webex is available to members to support their online meeting and learning needs. NELLCOs website supports social media functionality and integrates with Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Youtube and most other social networks to make sign on and updates simple. Members can also use the NELLCO website interface to chat in real time email or message members or groups and participate in blogs or forums. Communication leads to community and only through community can collaboration happen. Communicate Value NELLCO establishes strong partnerships with a variety of legal information vendors and publishers. We convey the value of working through a consortium to save time and money. The list to the right shows just a few of our industry partners. Collaboration requires communication. 4 THEN NELLCO began in the pre-email days. Communication meant phone calls and letters. NOW Communication is ubiquitous and NELLCO embraces social media. As a NELLCO member I benefit from the ability to communicate with a broad spectrum of law libraries. As such we collaborate to work on projects of mutual interest to achieve cost savings andor quality products to utilize in serving our diverse patron communities.

We dont stand still and wait for change to move us. Were change leaders in the law library community. T he importance of the law to the human endeavor to a civil society and to democratic principles makes legal texts ... among the most important examples of what needs to be preserved ... Nothing less than transmission of the permanent accurate record of legal knowledge to future generations is at stake. Margaret K. Maes Executive Director Legal Information Preservation Alliance 2011 PALMPrintPreserving Americas Legal Materials in Printis an exciting collaborative pilot project aimed at developing a shared circulating collection of primary U.S. legal materials in print form. Working with the Legal Information Preservation Alliance LIPA the two organizations have jointly committed to underwrite 120000 of the total cost of the three-year project. The remaining costs are shared by the more than 60 participating law library members from the two organizations. Our project partner W.B. Meyer Inc. a library moving and storage expert houses the collection in their Windsor CT high-density storage facility. NELLCO and LIPA are delighted to support this project and hope it will serve as a model for a collaborative solution to print retention allowing libraries to make better decisions about the use of library space and resources at the local level. In this way libraries can continue to be responsive to the changing needs of their users secure in the knowledge that primary print materials are within reach and under the stewardship of the collaborative. Preservation as innovation. 8 The PALMPrint Process l to r Pulling print legal texts at Quinnipiac Law Library for shipment to Meyers climate- controlled high density storage facility. THEN In the early days NELLCO innovations included reciprocal interlibrary loans and securing grants for library fax machines. NOW Through PALMPrint were exploring innovative ways to preserve print materials while embracing the shift to digital technologies. NELLCO provides support which I truly consider to be invaluable. As a law library director committed to providing excellent services for faculty and students I can count on NELLCO not only to negotiate the best terms for e-resource subscriptions but also to provide a forum for creative and collaborative resource sharing and innovation. FEMI CADMUS Edward Cornell Law Librarian Associate Dean for Library Services Senior Lecturer in Law Cornell University School of Law Ithaca NY 9 Some of our past innovative projects include Union Catalog Resource Sharing Database LAWLINE Virtual Reference Service NELLCO Legal Scholarship Repository Universal Search Solution You can learn more about these and other efforts by visiting our website at www.nellco.org. NELLCOs History of Innovation t h en N o w 10 E d u c a t e Education is a NELLCO core value. Were a community of educators and lifelong learners. NELLCO thrives on the robust exchange of information and ideas among our own members and with those outside of the consortium. We come together in many ways to share our knowledge and learn from one another. I learned more here in two days than I have at three separate industry conferences AMAZING Attendee at 2014 Symposium From survey Gathering to learn. I n 2012 NELLCO held its first Annual Symposium in Albany NY. The Symposium is a two-day meeting created by and for member law librarians. It provides a venue for true exchange and collaboration as well as hands-on skill building. The goal of the Symposium is twofold to provide professional development and continuing education opportunities and to create a centralized annual gathering for all NELLCO Interest Groups Acquisitions Interlibrary Loan IT and Reference. Each of the NELLCO Interest Groups has a half-day on the Symposium agenda to share with and learn from their colleagues and to explore and expand upon existing collaborations. Holding Interest Group meetings during the Symposium allows attendees to participate in more than one Interest Group without having to attend multiple meetings throughout the year. The NELLCO Symposium also offers opportunities for NELLCO product and service providers to connect with NELLCO members. NELLCO vendors can exhibit in a small conference environment and have meaningful interactions with current and potential customers. In 2015 the NELLCO Symposium will move to Boston. Please plan to join us at the Social Law Library on March 19 and 20. Visit the NELLCO website www. nellco.org for more information. THEN Continuing education and professional development were fixed by place and time. NOW Members learn and teach continuously using synchronous and asynchronous virtual and face-to-face formats as appropriate. The NELLCO Symposium provides excellent opportunities for exchanging ideas that help our libraries succeed even in challenging times. Whether meeting with the interest groups or having an informal chat not only do I get to share what works for us but I also learn how to get things done more efficiently effectively and saving money. At the last symposium I learned about a time management tool a new way of thinking about work new methods for faculty outreach new marketing ideas and how other schools are teaching Advanced Legal Research. A lot of good information learned over a two day meeting Raquel M. Ortiz Assistant Dean for Library and Information Services Associate Professor of Law Roger Williams University School of Law Bristol RI 11 We support continuing education and professional development in many ways including NELLCO Symposium Grant writing workshops Fellows Program Free access to Informed Librarian Online Free access to Internet Guide for the Legal Researcher Do you want to know more Call us anytime at 518-694-3025 or e-mail tracy.thompsonnellco.org.
