Associate Professor Knott Contributes to Books on Librarianship

Associate Professor Christopher Knott has recently been asked to contribute to two important projects. Professor Knott has been asked to contribute a chapter to an Aspatore/Thomson West book called Inside the Minds: The Changing Role of Academic Librarianship, which will be written by several academic law library directors. He also has been asked to contribute an article on teaching advanced legal research for a Legal Reference Services Quarterly symposium issue on the role of librarians in the law school curriculum. Both the book and symposium issue are scheduled for publication later this year.

In addition, Professor Knott was recently asked by the ABA to join the group of faculty members serving as ABA site team members for law schools undergoing the sabbatical accreditation process; he will serve as a site team member beginning in Fall 2008.
