Beyond Virtualization

Transforming the Law Library

The concept of library modernization is more than downsizing space, cancelling print and right sizing resources. It is a paradigm shift in the way law librarians and knowledge managers assess and deliver services within their organizations.

As clients demand efficiency of services and lower costs, firms have been forced to take a closer look at how they themselves do business. Library modernization requires a multi-faceted approach. To modernize, firms must assess the best approaches to delivering information while considering cost and work product.

With these changes, so does the role of library services within firm change. They become innovators and change agents as they assist their organizations in assessing and creating information strategies to improve workflow and cut expense.

In the modern law library, librarians become interdepartmental collaborators taking on new roles in competitive intelligence, client intake and knowledge management to name a few.
