Patron Privacy in Law Library Websites and Resources

Librarians have a reputation for protecting patron privacy. But as more library services and content move to the web, librarians relinquish control to vendor privacy policies and technologies over which neither librarian nor patron has control.

Digitizing Historical Documents

You've got a lot of useful material, but its format makes it difficult to use. You decide to digitize! Do you do it in house? Send it out? Where will you store the files?

Steam locomotives would ultimately triumph over mule-drawn canal boats; by the mid-1800s railroads ...more »
