The Legal World under pressure

This is the title of an article in the May 2007 edition of Managing Information the article discusses how pressures and circumstances affecting the legal profession as a whole will impact on the way legal libraries and information management services operate.

These changes are broadly described as either being threats to the services we provide or opportunities, the impact of Web 2.0 is described as an opportunity and as having "greater and greater influence" There isn't anything new in the article as such (apart from a plug for the BIALL Conference) but it is worth reading if you subscribe for an understanding of how the legal world as a whole affects legal library services.
