Google group

To make good on my promise from the wrap-up session yesterday, I’ve established a Google group for LATCamp.  Anyone who is interested in continuing the conversations that started yesterday, who is interested in starting new conversations about legal information and technology, or who is interested in planning future LATCamps should join.  Spread word of this listserv widely, and maybe LATCamp will grow to have several regional camps next year!


What makes us different from one another and how do we compliment one another?  We wrap our services in the same technologies – the same skins, bells and whistles.  Stepping back away from the tools and books, how do we distinguish ourselves as professionals?  What is our frame of mind and how do we approach and use, or serve, information?

Technology KM

How do we manage technology knowledge?  This was the question that we attempted to answer by creating an Emerging Technologies Committee in the library.  In this short talk, I’ll talk about the committee, its membership, and how we are sharing our technology knowledge in order to stay on the cutting edge.

I am the Associate Director/Head of Research Services at Boston University’s Pappas Law Library.  As a librarian and adjunct faculty, I’m interested in how faculty are using technology for instruction and the impact of that technology on student learning.  I’m also curious as to what technologies students are adopting and using to their full potential.  Finally, I would like to learn about the role librarians are playing in their institutions to identify and vet technologies for faculty and student use.

I’m a librarian in the Harvard Law School Library Digital Lab, where we collaborate to build digital collections for research, teaching, and education. LATCamp is a great opportunity to learn more about use requirements for these collections and to meet other practitioners interested in designing and configuring technologies promoting the creation, preservation, discovery, delivery, and use of born-digital and digitized materials. Before joining the Harvard Law School Library, I managed the Harvard University Library’s Open Collections Program and served on the team that designed the Library’s Digital Repository Service.
