Blog - Improve your Current Awareness Strategy

Times are a changin’ for Linex

 The observant ones amongst you may have noticed things are looking a little different around these parts. We have been busy working on a number of projects here at Linex over the past few months and we are incredibly excited to now be able to share some of those with you.

Firstly, this week we launched our brand new website. The new site, as you can see, has a clean fresh look. Our aim here has been to simplify your user experience whilst providing easy to digest, valuable content for our site visitors. We hope that you enjoy exploring some of our new pages, and do feel free to send us through your feedback - we’d love to hear from you!

Our second announcement is even bigger. We are currently in the process of developing our new content automation platform, due to launch this winter. The new platform is very much a natural evolution of our current product, designed with our clients and their feedback at the forefront of our minds.

Creating a user-friendly product has been our focus throughout, and the new intuitive content automation platform is very much that, and so much more:

  • A new topics structure enable you to organise your content and information more intuitively
  • Natural language processing gives you access to semantic text analysis
  • Improved taxonomies enhance the quality of your searches, meaning you have better quality results

This is just a snapshot of what will be on offer. Our vision is to give back control to Librarians, placing you in the driver’s seat throughout the content delivery journey. We want to ensure that the content you send is the very best it can be.

Interested to find out more? Meet us for a chat at BIALL, SLA or AALL this summer and discover a new way to manage your content.

5 Ways to Supercharge Your Lawyers Through Content

We’ve heard it time and time again, we are living in an information age. Never before have we had so much information available to us, and so many different ways by which to consume it. Subsequently, the need to filter out the white noise has never been more relevant nor essential.

Free ebook: Striking the Balance Between Content Curation & Automation

We are living in a knowledge economy. In an increasingly competitive industry, the one true differentiator left between law firms today is knowledge. What one lawyer knows over another could be the deciding factor over who wins the case.

Why Our World Would End if Legal Librarians Disappeared

There is a common misconception that, as the online information age ploughs on everstrong, libraries are going to disappear forever. This sits in line with the perception that librarians require books in order to be needed and we are seeing the existence of print books steadily decline. Libraries and books are not one and the same. This concerningly common misconception is a manifestation of the lack of understanding of what a law librarian actually does - where they source their information from, how they manage and curate it and, ultimately, how it is delivered to their end users.

Information Specialists’ Biggest Blunder with Paid Content

We all know that in today’s society you get what you pay for. The more you pay, the better quality of product you tend to get, or at least one would expect so. Paying for content provides your end users with information and intelligence that free resources quite simply don’t cover - predictive intelligence, up to the minute legal developments, and high quality insights to name but a few. This we know.
