While technology has rapidly impacted legal collections and the volume of available information, patron services in libraries serving the public have essentially remained in their classic format. With COVID-19 restrictions forcing greater reliance on remote technology, libraries and legal assistance organizations are exploring new and improved ways to better serve library users near and far. This session will highlight innovative projects using virtual presence devices, legal kiosks, and other virtual delivery methods to demonstrate how virtual access can enhance library services and increase access to justice in our communities.
Recorded at the 2022 AALL Annual Meeting & Conference. Please note the opinions shared during the programs represent the views of the speakers and not of AALL.
