Knowledge Management in the Legal Setting

Monday, June 18th, 2012

by Connie Crosby

I was fortunate to have been invited to teach a session in the Canadian Association of Law Library’s New Law Librarians Institute 2012 earlier this month. The focus of the one-week program is substantive law, but my session was of a more practical nature, entitled “Knowledge Management in the Legal Setting.”

I was asked to provide a paper related to the content of my discussion, and am pleased to share it here with everyone (click the image to download the PDF document):
