Outsourcing the Law Library in the Private Sector
In Outsourcing Legal Information, Karen Sawatzky wrote
I tend to live in the future. I think about what it will be like when I’ve paid off all my debts, how I’m going to celebrate a significant event coming up next year, and what my next job will look like. So last December, when the legal outsourcing firm Integreon announced the first “Shared Information Service”, or outsourced law library services, I was very intrigued.
That post resulted in an interview with Integreon's Vice President, Knowledge and Business Development Services, Eleanor Windsor. The results of the interview are published at Law library outsourcing. Ah ... perhaps required reading for Gen X and Gen Y private sector law librarians.
Well, at least this is one thing we aging and decrepit Boomer law librarians don't have to worry about as we muddle through the closing chapter of our professional careers. Back to the spreadsheets for institutional budgets and vendor annual price increases. [JH]
