In the blink of the eye, the information landscape that we work in has changed profoundly from information scarcity to information abundance, from mediated services to self service, from print to digital, from serving baby boomers to millennials. We all know change is happening and have taken time to explore online sites like YouTube, MySpace, Facebook, Flickr and others, but what does this mean for info pros? What is just hype or entertainment value and what is actually transforming the way legal professionals work or want to work if they could? What should we be doing as information professionals to provide services today and tomorrow? If the sky is the limit, what should we pay attention to and be doing now?

Plenary Session at:
The Canadian Association of Law Libraries/L'Association canadienne des bibliothèques de droit (CALL/ACBD) Conference, May 25-28, 2008 Saskatoon, SK

  • fichter Darlene Fichter, Librarian This slide only shows the first 7 of 18 steps so here are the 18 that scroll by to the tune of Supertramp's Take the Long Way Home.

    Finding Journal Articles / Legal Info
    #1. Go to Library home page
    #2. Where is the link to online legal info …?
    #3. Guess which link to click to find x
    #4. Dozens of databases in an A-Z list
    “What were they thinking?” 
    #5. “Which one should I try? What does this stuff mean? HeinOnline, LegalTrac, Decisions on CanLII, Index to Legal Periodicals & Books”
    #6. “I have no idea what database to pick.”
    #7. “Where is LegalTrac– I’ve used that before.”
    #8. Okay, picked it but does it have “online” stuff?
    #9. Enter some keywords.
    #10. Cross fingers, feel lucky.
    #11. No results aaargh! OR 1000 results …
    #12. “Why can’t I limit to Sask/scholarly?”
    #13. Sift through the results one by one.
    #14. Here’s a result that could work! 
    #15. Click on “Find It” – “aarrgh” no full text
    #16. Try again – Yes - this could work!
    #17. If lucky, repeat #9-#11 till done.
    #18. Otherwise, repeat #4 to #11 till done.
