Upcoming in February, Feit Consulting will present on Beyond Virtualization: Transforming the Law Library at the Ark Group’s 12th annual Law Firm Library, Research & Information Services conference.

What is the Modern Law Library? The role of library services within firms and organizations has shifted. Rather than being a target of downsizing or outsourcing, librarians need to move beyond traditional research roles reinventing themselves to support the business of law. Administration needs to be open to the new roles the modern law library can play. Without this support, library modernization cannot be fully realized.

Feit Consulting’s program addresses the steps firms need to take for maximum efficiency and delivery of legal information resources and the role of the Modern Library. Feit Consulting’s Michael Feit, President & Founder and Monice Kaczorowski, Vice-President of Library Strategy and Innovation will lead the program by sharing their research on library modernization and how this is defined. A panel discussion with key experts from the field will speak on the “Big Picture” of Librarians as disruptors, how to change the stereotypical image of the librarian, how to run the Library as a business and the importance of interdepartmental support and technology. Panelists include

  • Shabeer Khan, Director of Research Services with Morrison & Foerster LLP sharing his views on the Value of Running the Library as a Business.
  • Greg Lambert, Chief Knowledge Services Officer with Jackson Walker sharing his view on The “Big Picture” of Librarians as Disruptors and their Role in the Modern Library.
  • Nancy Rine, Director of Research Services and Conflicts with Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP sharing her views on the Importance of Interdepartmental Support & Technology – Tenets of the Modern Library.

The conference is taking place in New York this coming February 22, 2018.  For more information, click here for the conference details.
