Law Firm Library and Information Technology professionals share similar goals, needs and in a flattening world, struggle with the same issues. As we are all asked to do more with less, the skills that both of these groups bring to the table can be leveraged to increase value and produce results that are not only more effective, but more efficient.
Please join Scott Preston, CIO with Fulbright & Jaworski and Sarah Clark Kavanagh, CEO of Cable & Clark for a program that will review perceptions, barriers, and discuss opportunities to collaborate and find common ground to achieve effective results for our firms.
This webinar will discuss:
- Perceptions of the law firm library (from technology point of view)
- Perceptions of the law firm technology (from the firm's library point of view)
- Discussion of barriers between groups, common goals and needs
- Discuss methods of effective collaboration

This is the fourth in a series of five programs moderated by PLL members to provide a primer in law firm management from the view point of firm managers and administrators. The series is part of a two year program undertaken by the Private Law Library Special Interest Section (PLL-SIS) of AALL. The goal is to identify significant changes taking place in the legal world, to understand how these changes provide opportunities for assuming leadership roles, and to develop concrete plans for librarians to become leaders within their organizations. The culmination of these efforts, the Change as Action Summit, will take place in Philadelphia on Saturday, July 23, 2011.
