Button, Button, Who’s Got the Hurricane Button?

Last year the Gulf Coast was devastated by three category 5 hurricanes–Katrina, Rita, and Wilma. Courts, law firms and law schools were in many cases forced to go on the road for significant periods of time, trying to maintain services even when the devastation occurred over a large geographical area. Many law librarians were, and still are, affected by these events. Those librarians who are willing to discuss their experiences will be wearing a button with the hurricane symbol and the words "I was there." The buttons may be picked up at the hospitality area, at the same place where you pick up the sticker to show that you will be attending AALL in New Orleans in 2007. Thanks to Catherine Lemann, Law Library of Louisiana, for coming up with this idea. (Posted for Barbara Fritschel)
