Title: Re-Engineering the Law Library Resources Today for Tomorrow's Users
Author: Russell, Gordon
Appeared in: Legal reference services quarterly
Paging: Volume 21 (2002) nr. 2-3 pages 29-54
Year: 2002-03-01
Contents: The emergence of rich and diverse digital resources requires re-visualization of traditional law library space design and usage patterns. The structure and form of extant libraries-architectural edifices that house our beloved information artifacts-serve our pedagogic purposes less well. The use of digital straw men to justify outmoded library space design impedes the timely arrival of the law library of the future. (Professor Hazelton posits that only 13% of her collection is available on Lexis and Westlaw as justification for a request for 50% of a projected new facility.) Building larger library space merely to house physical material should be reconsidered and a course of action planned and implemented that acknowledges technology's import today.
