IALS Library staff often contribute to the Associations journal "Legal Information Management" and compile a monthly current awareness column of recently published books and articles on topics of interest to legal information professionals. The library developed and hosts the Current Awareness for Legal Information Managers web database. The annual SLS/BIALL Academic Law Library Survey is conducted at IALS on behalf of the Society of Legal Scholars (SLS) and British and Irish Association of Law Librarians (BIALL), providing a snapshot of the staffing, expenditure on acquisitions, subscriptions to databases and range of services provided in the academic year by university and college libraries in the UK and Ireland
