CONFERENCE APP (sponsored by Bloomberg Law)
AALL 2018 IN THE PALM OF YOUR HAND

You'll be able to:
  • Build your personalized agenda
  • Sync your desktop planning
  • Access detailed program, meeting, and event information
  • Use the search bar to easily find scheduled events, speakers, and attendees for programs; you can do a quick search by alphanumeric code
  • View interactive floor maps

See each day's schedule at-a-glance in a list view, or use the table option to see everything in a customizable matrix view. Remember to accept "push notifications" to receive important announcements, emergency notifications, and reminders while you're at the conference. Don't have a mobile device? You can still build your own schedule by visiting the app.

AALL'S ADVOCACY LEADERSHIP
CHAMPION LEGAL INFORMATION

Learn how to use your knowledge, passion, and research skills to champion legal information at Advocacy Leadership: Law Librarians Ignite Change during the AALL Annual Meeting in Baltimore. As a legal information expert and constituent of your elected officials, you hold the power to influence your legislators' opinions on the essential information policy issues that support our democracy. Find out how to protect the internet after the repeal of the Federal Communications Commission's net neutrality rules and how to fight for no-fee access to legal materials in the face of threats from Congress to eliminate print. You'll also have an opportunity to join AALL's Advocacy Team, a network of law librarians who are committed to championing legal information. This year's program will be preceded by the AALL Public Policy Update, which will inform participants about the Association's legislative priorities and activities.

BALTIMORE ACCOMMODATIONS
BOOK WITH ONPEAK

Discounted rooms are still available through onPeak--the only officially-endorsed housing company for the AALL Annual Meeting & Conference--but only until July 2. After that, unsold rooms must be released. Beware of offers you may have received from other companies posing as official travel vendors for this year's Annual Meeting. They are NOT affiliated with AALL in any capacity and cannot provide the same benefits and protection that onPeak offers. AALL only guarantees hotel room rates or availability during the conference dates for reservations made through onPeak, the official housing company.
