The latest BIALL newsletter is now available to members at the BIALL website!
Former BIALL Blogger and President Elect James Mullan give us an account of his time at the Annual Conference of the Australian Law Librarians Association (ALLA). I deduced from the article he had a good time at the conference but less so on the plane...
An account of A Day in the Life by Sarah Wheeler of the Supreme Court Library is a fascinating read. Find out what it is Sarah tries not to spill her tea on!
Stephen Wheeler from Pinsent Masons - editor of the BIALL newsletter - guides us through his career in his Library Routes.
Finally the Co-BIALL blogger Sally Peat answers questions in On The Spot. It gives us a revealing insight into what can go wrong when you go for a run...

The BIALL conference has enriched my life in many ways.
Whenever I go on holiday I put my tickets, insurance documents and passport in my BIALL 2006 (Brighton - Face the Front) leather folder - it’s the perfect size.
I never found a use for the Lawtel Travel Mug I picked up possibly back as far as 2004 at the Edinburgh conference (Changing Times - New Challenges). When I married, however, my teacher wife found it perfect for carrying cups of tea whilst removing any danger of spilling on the children.
I’m not sure where I picked up the bespectacled Westlaw Bear that sits on my desk but if it didn’t come into my life through the conference it really could have.
I have pens from various legal publishers on which to jot thoughts down on notepads which they also thoughtfully provided.
When it rains I use my Wildy’s umbrella which I picked up free from this year’s Newcastle BIALL conference. Sadly it broke on Friday … but never mind I’ve got a Kluwer blue and white stripy one I picked up last year.
The next BIALL Conference is in Belfast in 2012. Who know what you might pick up.
