UGA Law Library’s longstanding newsletter Amicus Briefs first saw circulation in 1984. At that time it was solely in print and included no more than a couple of items about new additions to the library collection and upcoming library instruction. More than 30 years later, the newsletter has evolved significantly. This session will share the many lessons learned over the years by looking back in time at the newsletter’s rich history of content.
