Do you follow 3 Geeks and a Law Blog? Well, if you don’t, you should.
While the focus is on the large law firm environment, articles related to legal education, technology and training will speak to all of us in law libraries in some form or another.
Two recent articles are worth your attention: Law Librarians + Legal Marketing = Successful Client Service and Law Firm Librarians: An Underutilized Resource.
Thoughts/comments from our law firm librarian readers? Do you have any successful client service stories you’d like to share?

Research in the Real World (RRW) was a huge success this year. The 76 summer students attending the program were very complimentary.

And thanks to those of you who have incorporated RRW into your in-house training program.

On this blog in June, we met ROSS.
Since then, there has been an interesting development. As reported by the Globe and Mail, ROSS has now joined the world’s largest law firm, Dentons.
The partnership is in it’s infancy, however the implications for law libraries and law librarians are worthy of discussion.
