Future Law Libraries, Generations of Lawyers

Interesting post by Bruce MacEwen, based on his keynote address at a conference on management of law libraries (firm): The Law Library of the Future?, Adam Smith, Esq.: An inquiry into the economics of law firms...., Feb. 21, 2007.

MacEwen discusses the different generations of lawyers and their approaches to legal information. He sees us in a shift from old model (information is scarce; librarians are needed in order to find it) to new model (information is ubiquitous; librarians are needed to help find the needle in the haystack).
