Key takeaways from this DipLawMatic Dialogues Blog post (besides that foreign and international law librarians rock...:)):

"As organizers, we wanted to ensure that participants would continue to contribute to a network for African Law Librarians. To that end, we established several online forums after the workshop for participants and organizers to engage in virtual and practical collaboration with international colleagues. The forums included:

  *   an email group hosted through Google Groups ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>),
  *   a website hosted through Google Sites (, where slide and paper presentations from the workshop have been uploaded,
  *   and a What'sApp group for commentary and discussion amongst participants on topics tangentially related to librarianship"
