  • Last May, the executive team held a 2 day ADVANCE – and developed 3-year goals. Among the 6 goals identified was the need to “Identify & Sustain Funding sources.” In 2005, when I began at LA Law, we had just come out of a period of time where dollars were scarce and both collections and services had sustained reductions. Fortunately, the uniform filing fee act provided the opportunity to increase our filing fee portion by $6 dollars - $3 in 2006 and $3 in 2007. The library had requested an increase from $12 to $14 in 2001, from $14 to $16 in 2004 and from $16 to $18 in 2005. So within a span of 4 years, the filing fee increased 70%. This tremendous increase has sustained the library over past 4 years – and actually enabled us to generate revenues However, a number of reviews and restructuring has also taken place during that time. There have been changes in the collection, in personnel, in the development of partnerships and in reaching out to the users of the library. Before I briefly go into those changes, let me say that despite our size and the scope of LA Law, …Develop & implement the technology to support our internal / external needsCreate a tranquil atmosphere that encourages and promotes trust, cooperation and mutual support.Build and maintain mutually beneficial relationships within the community.Identify and sustain funding sources.Explore and define the standard for delivery of information in the future.Explore and optimize LA Law Library place in the evolving development of Los Angeles, particularly with in the Civic Center development.
  • we are all in this together – and both the increases and downturns in the filing fees have been extraordinarily similar.
