Establishment of the AALL Archives

1950 AALL banquet attendees

For over a century the AALL has been involved with the promotion of law libraries and librarianship and has sought to provide leadership in the field of legal information. In order to preserve the history of the organization and promote the understanding of its role in the development of law librarianship, an agreement was signed in 1980 establishing the AALL Archives at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The Archives collects, arranges, and describes AALL records that represent the history of the AALL and its members. It includes papers of past presidents and association members as well as records and publications of committees, Special Interest Sections, chapters, and regional associations.
