ARK GROUP – Legal Libraries 2017

September 28

The role of the librarian working in a law firm has always been a central support role. In today’s increasingly competitive market, this role is evolving to encompass more responsibility, more opportunity for collaboration, and crucially, a chance to add more value to your firm.

While recognising the important role of technology, this year’s conference will examine how market demands are calling for a modern and embedded librarian. The new librarian works more closely with key stakeholders to drive value; technology is embraced as a powerful tool, enabling quicker and more easily accessible information and the profit-generating abilities of an information services function are fully realised and prioritised.

How can you evolve with your role? What tasks and priorities will increase the value your role brings to your firm? And how can you further raise the profile of the information services function to your fee earners?

Get the answers to these questions and more at Legal Libraries 2017.
