LMU law school denied ABA accreditation on appeal

LMU law school denied ABA accreditation on appeal | Tennessee Libraries | Scoop.it

The ABA is rather clear in what they consider a proper law library, it is not an electronic library, it is physical law books, and I agree with the ABA."

Featuring: Jamie Powell Sheppard | Library as Incubator Project | Tennessee Libraries | Scoop.it

After several years of photographer’s block I started photographing my own library, as well as others in our consortium. This morphed into a Christmas gift from our consortium to the founders of LSSI, who helped us break away from a large system who had little interest in our varying needs."
