On Monday, Hogan Lovells U.S. senior research services manager Emily Florio was formally elevated to president of the American Association of Law Libraries.

Last week, AALL held its all-virtual conference in lieu of its originally scheduled meeting in New Orleans. While COVID-19 caused difficult and laborious replanning, Florio noted the convention was a success with over 1,200 participants. But the novel coronavirus’s impact didn’t stop at in-person meetings. More broadly, COVID-19 has altered the perception of law librarians and highlighted the advanced legal research librarians can remotely perform, Florio argued.
