Has CLE become a responsibility of the firm library? I'm not quite sure the form this would take yet but I would love to see how other firms manage CLE and how we can add value to this beast.
I'm thinking we need the workshop on how to design a disaster plan that I proposed for Austin.
In many places public law libraries are difficult to access or not open to the public at all. In those communities there is still a need for legal information and public librarians are in a perfect position to provide assistance if we help them learn the basics of legal research. This is an opportunity in A2J for any law librarian who wants to offer assistance, not just those in public facing positions.
Lawyers are statistically more likely to be problem drinkers than other professionals. They also face job stresses and firm culture that can normalize addiction and make it difficult to admit problems or perceived weaknesses. Librarians can help ourselves and our co-workers by learning more about the programs available from bar associations to help lawyers and legal staff to get help and support.
Recovery for research services remains a hot topic. Attorneys hate to charge for research and e-billing systems make it difficult to get paid even if the cost is passed through. How should we do cost recovery or is it time to let this one go?
Now that law firm librarians are getting involved in NBI how can we do it better? How do we get along with records?
