Welcome Back

As we start a new week - the last one of July already - I am coming to you live from Minneapolis. Still fired up from this year's SLA and AALL conferences, I take great comfort in the fact that I am a librarian whose office is anywhere he needs to be. I am rapidly approaching two major milestones in my career. This fall, I will mark 30 years of working in libraries, followed this winter by the 20th anniversary of my professional career in law librarianship itself. I have seen a lot of challenge and change in our industry over that time. Still, I am excited to say that I am as optimistic about our profession today as I was when I wandered into my first firm library. Here's to embracing change and meaningful reinvention. Here's to newer times and newer priorities.

A Matter of Priorities

Ron Friedmann recently hosted a virtual roundtable for ILTA that took a look at the state of priorities in the knowledge management field. Today he reports on that panel as well as the findings of a survey that was conducted in advance of the presentation. The results were interesting and Ron puts them into perspective. Check out: Changing Knowledge Management (KM) Priorities.
