The Law Library as Business

Nina Platt over at the Strategic Librarian has written an interesting post on how increasingly Law Libraries are being thought of as businesses in their own right.

This is unfortunate as engaging Librarians in planning, even if the need for research hasn't been identified, will improve outcome. It's been said, information is power. A firm that expects the Library to operate as a business entity, will realize the value it can provide"
