Stepping Out of the Library: A Visit to UChicago

To end the year on an amiable note, a group of our PLRC law librarians visited the University of Chicago’s Law School in early December.  We met with UChicago’s law librarians to discuss pressing issues facing our resources and special collections, creative solutions for patron needs, and future innovations.  Dialogue between professional peers allows for the informal transfer of ideas, resulting in an enhanced understanding of common challenges and improved user services through knowledge sharing. Several years ago, a group of UChicago law librarians visited Northwestern to begin this collaboration, and at the conclusion of 2016, the conversation continued.

“It was a pleasure to spend time with our law librarian colleagues from Northwestern’s Pritzker Legal Research Center.,” said Sheri Lewis, Director of the D’Angelo Law Library, University of Chicago Law School. “The morning produced great communication and the opportunity to share ideas on collections and services for our patrons.”

Director of Northwestern’s Pritzker Legal Research Center, George H. Pike, agreed: “It was a great visit and a great opportunity to learn from and share with our friends and colleagues.  The break-out groups were a lively and incredibly helpful forum for the exchange of thoughts, challenges, and ideas.  Thanks to Sheri and her team for being great hosts!”

After small and large group discussions, we toured the D’Angelo Law Library, Law School, Regenstein Library, and state-of-the-art Mansueto Library. The facilities were impressive, the company informative, and most importantly, open lines of communication were affirmed as we move into 2017 and the future of law libraries.
