About Us

Formed in 2011, the ERC is a group of law librarians interested in empirical research. Our group's goals include:

  •   
  • Encouraging law librarians to expand their knowledge of trends in empirical research and methods and resources that can be used to support empirical research;
  • Facilitating librarian instructional efforts to increase information literacy about statistics and empirical methods; 
  • Encouraging law librarians to engage in empirical research on topics important to libraries;  
  • Maintaining a list of publications by librarians about empirical research;
  • Partnering with AALL Special Interest Sections, including ALL-SIS,PLL-SISandCS-SIS to support and publicize programming and professional development opportunities on empirical research; and 
  • Providing a forum for sharing knowledge related to empirical research, including the development and archiving of data, availability of existing data and requirements for institutional review boards.
