Today’s librarians are innovators acting as the information hub to support the everyday business of law whether competitive intelligence, client intake, knowledge management and more. But every library is different. Where does your firm fall on the innovation/modernization scale?

Feit Consulting’s has released its latest survey findings. The Library Modernization Survey Results share the questions and analyzed responses of 80 participants, with charts and direct comments. Gain perspective on how the Modern Law Library movement is being realized. You’ll learn what obstacles are holding back law libraries from fully modernizing, and which resources they are accessing to modernize.

Here are some surprises we found:

  • Half of the respondents indicate that firm management doesn’t really understand the role of the library.
  • Nearly two-thirds of law firm libraries surveyed operate using only some or none of initiatives of the firm’s overall strategic plan.

Consider the value of the resources and skills that you offer your firm. Does the library have the right tools in place to support the changing needs of the firm? Does firm leadership capitalize on the skills of your team to assess, implement and utilize new processes and technology to move the firm’s strategic vision forward?
