I’m in the free wi-fi zone and thought to make a little update prior to writing something more comprehensive. This is the first library conference I have attended and have found it to be enlightening, busy, exciting, and fun. There is so much challenge being tackled these days that it has been difficult to decide which events to attend.
The one event that I will mention for now is titled: Knowledge Management Staffing Structures in Law Firms. Catherine Monte with Fox Rothschild LLP gave her presentation on her organization’s KM shift. One progressive piece that struck me was the fact that instead of the traditional role of a librarian being posed with a question first and then going out to seek the answers, their research analyst will collect analogous information and compile it into digestible forms, securing information for current and future needs.
