Law Libraries & Librarians Ning Social Network Closing in September
In a message dated August 21, 2013, Connie Crosby explains:
"The network reached 800 members in August 2012, including law librarians from all over the world and who are active in law library associations such as AALL, IALL, CALL, BIALL, etc. Presently, there are 22 groups on the Ning including Information Literacy in Law, the Gen X Gen Y Caucus, Bloggers, Web 2.0 Challenge 2009, Second Life Law Librarians, Court Librarians, Sci-Fi Law Librarians, Ordainers of the Universe (catalogers/technical services), Law Librarians in Florida, Texas Law Librarians, NELLCO Acq/CD, and Scholarly Communications (...)"
"In the past two years, however, there has been little activity. It is not the social networking community it once was. It’s pretty quiet here."
"The renewal deadline is September 25. We therefore thought that now would be a good time to sunset the Ning network and give y’all a heads-up (...)"
"We thank Jim Milles [director of the law library at the University of Buffalo and creator of the Ning law librarians network] for making the network happen. We thank you all for joining us on this tech networking adventure, and look forward to seeing y’all on other social networks/media!"
