Target Audience: Law firm librarians who are responsible for distributing information throughout their law firms
1) Participants will be able to evaluate the current awareness needs of their firm.
2) Participants will be able to identify solutions for organizing and delivering information in their firm.
"Infobesity" doesn't begin to define the current awareness problems facing legal professionals today, but there are new and evolving ways to meet the challenge of getting the right news to people in a less disruptive manner. Librarians and technologists can team up to find creative and effective ways to locate a good source, sift through it for relevant content, curate it, consolidate it with other sources, organize it, and deliver it in a variety of ways to reduce the interruptions and distractions caused by too-frequent emails and alerts. This program will help librarians evaluate the available tools to make informed decisions. Case studies will illustrate solutions in action, including ways to include internal content, and what mobile options can and cannot do.
