Law Library Talk, circa 2009

I recently unearthed the following presentation notes, from a talk I gave in February 2009 before coming on board at Case Western. While the references to specific projects and initiatives are obviously dated, I was surprised how much of this I thought still seemed relevant.

This does touch on a few things that have continued to interest me over the intervening years. In particular it alludes to: the promise of free or low-cost primary material that could be collaboratively given structural queues by an engaged community of third party contributors that would include libraries; the broader role of libraries and librarians as communicators (and defenders) of interpretive structure that online search tools can erode; the broad definition of “teaching”; and the need for libraries to be active innovators in terms of their online presence.
