Technology in Legal Practice

Written by Rebecca Gebhardt Thursday, 17 April 2014

Last week I had the great pleasure of speaking to Thomas Sneed's Technology in Legal Practice class at Emory University. (You have seen him mentioned on this blog before, in particular as part of the panel discussion of Why Can't I Just Fire These People?). Throughout the term he has had a series of guest speakers join the class to discuss real world applications of technology tools as well as concerns. 

My topic was, of course, current awareness and the Linex Systems platform. These sessions were a great opportunity to introduce the students to the variety of technology tools available and their different applications in practice. As a fairly new company in the US, it was a pleasure to see everybody anxious to learn about a new product and asking questions about our functionality. 

We did, however, discuss much more than that.

A Way With Words

You know I am an avid listener of podcasts on various subjects, as I have written about the Podcast app in the past. Coffee and a news podcast go hand in hand first thing every morning. Different times and activities throughout the day call for different podcasts and subjects.  

Some time has gone by since my previous post, and I have a whole list of new podcasts to which I now listen. Unsurprisingly they deal mainly with language, statistics and quizzes. 

Collaborating in a Virtual Environment

Collaborating in a Virtual Environment

This is the title of a recent talk from the SLA GA Chapter Lunch & Learn series (bring a lunch, learn a topic). The speaker was Stephanie Dunn, off-campus librarian at Shorter University. 

"Off" is the important part of the "off-campus librarian" title. Stephanie is responsible for libraries, research and bibliographic instruction at three satellite campuses in and around Atlanta. Making her highly qualified to tell us about managing virtual communication and collaboration. 

Human Calendar

Friday, 11 April 2014

I was reading Library Boy's excellent post about blogs as legal research sources, and I noticed he is using Human Calendar on his blog. It is the first time I am seeing it actually in-page and I must admit, it's quite clever. 

See the original site to give the whole calendar a shot of espresso and watch the individual panels "rock out".
