UF Levin College of Law Library tour
This afternoon I attended a tour of the University of Florida's Levin College of Law's Lawton Chiles Legal Information Center Library scheduled by NEFLIN. I was actually really just glad that I made it there on time because I had to drive all the way from Newberry then, due to UF's parking situation (or lack thereof, rather) I had to park over a mile away from the library. It was renovated and expanded a few years ago and the library was very nice and plush. There were only a few people who attended the tour and most of which were from close by (actually, about half were from other UF libraries). I was the only one from the public library but there were two local school library media specialists, both of whom I happen to be slightly familiar with. Ms. Antony, the librarian at Eastside High School, made herself available for me to interview her for a project I had earlier this year about the use of Web 2.0 technologies in media centers. The other school librarian was Ms. Moore from Santa Fe High School for whom my little brother was a media aide when he was in high school. Ahh, small world in library land. In any case, the tour was interesting as I have not previously been in a law library and I miss just generally being on campus oh so much. Sigh...good times.
