One thing is certain: the practice of law is changing.
That's why Courthouse Libraries BC is asking you, the lawyers of BC, a few questions about your work, your information needs, and how change is affecting your practice.
We are changing too, evolving as an institution to support BC lawyers now and for generations to come.
Our watchword is "innovation" as we retool to meet lawyers’ new needs while witnessing the changing role of libraries. (Tomorrow's libraries will exist because today's libraries are working very hard to build value beyond their traditional brand identity as institutions.)
To this end, we ask you, the lawyers of BC, to give input about your own needs so we can design resources and services that anticipate them. A few minutes with this survey now will help us shape the Courthouse Libraries BC of tomorrow and identify:
- new products, services and approaches to curating, sharing and connecting legal information
- the main deliverables in our technological platform for supporting communities of legal practice
- the precise knowledge management needs of tomorrow's legal profession
Information you share will be anonymous, and we will report out on the big picture findings of the survey after it closes (November 25, 2016). BC lawyers who complete the survey or share the link (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DPPB9DJ) with their Twitter followers using the hashtag #CLBClawyersurvey2016 will be given the chance to enter a draw for one of five $100 gift cards to Chapters/Indigo.
Be part of the conversation. Have a say in the future of your law library. Help shape the resources we're building to support you. Please take and share the survey today.
