Please come and join our Legal Citation Workshop!

**The Continuing Education Committee has rescheduled the Legal Citation Workshop for Wednesday, February 5, 2014.  All other details remain the same (time and place).  Please be sure to RSVP using the link below, even if you had previously registered for the original event.  We apologize for any inconvenience, and we hope to see many of you on the 5th!**

When is it OK to cite to an electronic version of a statute?  How and when do we apply the new citation rules for Illinois?  What is ALWD, and how does it differ from the Bluebook?  If you have ever found yourself asking questions like these, you are not alone.  Legal citation can be a frustrating and daunting task for even the most seasoned law librarian.  Our next CALL Continuing Education event is intended to clear up some of the most common mistakes and misconceptions about legal citation.    Hope to see you there!
