LEGAL REFERENCE FOR PUBLIC LIBRARIANS

Mary S. Searles, NH Law Library
Kathy Fletcher, UNH School of Law

Ever had a distraught person standing in front of you looking for legal information NOW? What about the tenant or landlord who wants to know all about evictions? Two New Hampshire law librarians offer tips and techniques for handling those tricky legal reference questions. Focus will be on handling difficult questions and being aware of the potential pitfalls involved when providing information to patrons.

MARY S. SEARLES is the director of The John W. King New Hampshire Law Library, the state’s only public law library. Prior to becoming a librarian, she was coordinator of the New Hampshire Bar Association’s Lawyer Referral, Reduced Fee and domestic violence programs as well as the Bar’s public information pamphlets and Pro Se Divorce Book.

KATHY FLETCHER has been a law librarian for almost twenty years. She joined the University of New Hampshire School Law in 2004 and prior to that worked at the New Hampshire Law Library. She also was a law librarian in Wiggin & Nourie, PA, in Manchester, one of the state’s oldest and largest law firms.

THE HISTORY OF GUNSTOCK: SKIING IN THE BELKNAP MOUNTAINS

Author CAROL LEE ANDERSON tells the little-known story of the development of winter sports and skiing in the Lakes Region, from before the construction of Gunstock through present-day efforts to preserve the resort’s rich history. Included will be stories of skiing greats Torger Tokle and Penny Pitou as well as coaches Gary Allen and Bill Trudgeon. Anderson’s book won the 2011 Skade Award from the International Skiing History Association. She is currently writing a book about the life of cartoonist and Archie creator, Bob Montana, and his life in the Lakes Region.

  1. show me the verse … show me the verse where it says we are all sons of God. if your used your own mind instead of the words of Alan you could see the truth. Alan was part of the Luciferian movement that wanted to degrade God. He was an alcoholic that was dependent on the bottle till his death. I think if his theories were correct he come easily kick the bottle. Was this answer helpful?

  2. What a wonderful post! These tips are very useful and I will definitely be implementing them! Headlines and I don’t get along very well- so the day I can get them under my belt will be awesome!

  3. Hi Gary, I have not personally used Adapt, but I have seen the interface. My sense is that it is pretty good tool for campaigns under $50K/month of spend. Generally speaking I recommend Adapt or Clickable for advertisers under $50K/mo.

  4. To produce an article on such a critical subject has needed to be done for years. I’m glad you took a stand to put your beliefs and ideals right here.

  5. Oups…Au début s’tait écrit publié par Antoine…Mais c’est « publié » par Prune Quellien alors c’est « Rendez-moi mon couple » qu’il faut acheter…Pas casé en une semaine

    “Thinking about it, this is clearly a great failure of propaganda on the part of the Catholic Church: They should explain that the celibacy of their priests is a measure for voluntary extinction or eugenia, and thus perfectly in line with the most progressive thinking.”Mr. Andreassen, we may not often agree, but I must say I admire your devious cleverness here. You are truly “my kind of scum,” to quote from the shining glory of sci-fi series.

  7. it is possible to eat a healthy diet without any dairy, gluten, and sugar. Mine goes further and includes no meat, no soy, and no pasta other than brown rice pasta. You would be amazed at all of the foods that are still left after eliminating all of those. Sure you can’t eat fast food anymore but why would you to begin with.

    This is so cute and we’re adding a baby boy to our family in July. With 2 girls I managed to tell myself I didn’t need this set (even though it works for girls too) but now I think I might just HAVE to get it – especially after seeing this adorable card! TFS
