Well, the day has finally arrived! Ned Potter (aka thewikiman) and I will be presenting our talk on Escaping the Echo Chamber this afternoon, from 2.30 to 3.30 pm, at the CILIP Yorkshire and Humberside Members Day. We really want this to be an interactive session, so we’d like to invite anyone who’s online this […]

NPC 2010: my impressions

My fellow presenters and delegates from Monday’s New Professionals Conference have already been blogging up a storm, so I’ve decided not to do a full write-up of everyone else’s talks. Instead, I’m just going to jot down a few impressions and ideas inspired by the talks I saw. If you want to see some good […]

Taking Charge of your Continuing Professional Development

I am delivering my paper on “Taking Charge of Your CPD” at the New Professionals Conference today. I’ll be blogging more about the whole experience once it’s all over, but in the meantime you can see my presentation below: In case you’re looking at this at work and Slideshare is blocked (it is on my […]

The final talk from BIALL I want to write about was Amanda McKenzie’s tremendously detailed talk on the Legal Services Act 2010.

The IS/KM team at Field Fisher Waterhouse wanted to introduce a wiki for various purposes: increased collaboration, cross department/office working, knowledge sharing, project management, and drawing together content.

I went along to Harriet Creamer’s presentation on Knowledge Management not really knowing what to expect. I’ve never had any involvement with KM at my firm, and I’ve never really been that clear on what it entails, so I was looking forward to hearing what Harriet had to say about it. I wasn’t disappointed – this […]

BIALL 2010: Integreon talks about outsourcing

I had high hopes for the next session – Chris Bull and Michael Maher from Integreon discussing “Emerging Alternative Models for Managing Information Resources in Law Firms: Outsourcing, Co-sourcing, Offshoring”. Outsourcing is a pretty hot issue in law libraries at the moment. A few firms have outsourced their libraries and other support departments to Integreon recently, the latest […]
