Legal Research: Attorneys vs Law Librarians

Written by Rebecca Gebhardt Wednesday, 09 July 2014

A couple of months ago I attended an ALLA panel discussion about "how to bridge the gap between what attorneys learn in law school and what they need to hit the ground running in practice".

A Comparison of Responses from Attorneys and from Law Librarians on Legal Research
Practices and Expectations for New Associates.

What are you reading?

Just like you probably do, we check back through the Linex Managed alert archives to see which articles and topics are the most popular. And of course we're interested in what's not being clicked through to at all. That helps us make sure we're picking the best and most useful articles and it's a great tool for evaluating which articles your end users are opening.

So what are you reading?

Recap of #BIALL2014

Written by Fiona Fogden, Sara Batts Thursday, 03 July 2014

Thank you to all those who stopped by our stand at the BIALL conference in Harrogate. Sara Batts and Fiona Fogden had a great time meeting customers, friends and colleagues. It is no secret we’re both still Law Librarians at heart, still using the Information skills built up over the years in our work with Linex.

So what were the main themes we heard from people?

A Mobile Tech Fair all for you

Monday, 30 June 2014

This is what the brilliant minds at the O'Melveny & Myers libraries devised for sharing expertise with their lawyers and colleagues. 

If you subscribe to the AALL Spectrum, you will have seen Debra Fisher and Holly Riccio's article in the June edition: Going Mobile. The premise is so simple and for that reason also oh-so-clever. We know people love their mobile devices. So give people more of what they love: an internal Mobile Tech Fair, targeted to your own office and apps you use (or should be using) every single day.
