  Westlaw - KeyCite 2014

I promised a bit of information about the new AALL exhibitors selling new products for today's digest but first I want to call out three posts that you may find interesting depending on what you do. Check out:

  • KM should focus on know-how - Nick Milton, Knoco Stories, explains what knowledge management (KM) is and isn't. Briefly, he says that their is confusion about KM and information management. In his words, the confusion arises because there is no "distinction between Know-How, and Know-What".
  • What is the Impact of a Low Cost Center When Law Firms Merge? - Ron Friedmann, Strategic Legal Technology, discusses a great article by Kevin Colangelo (formerly with Pangea and now with Elevate) on how law firms generally create their own back office service centers because they fear "a potential loss of control in relation to the activities if they were to retain a third party service provider to provide such services." He also discusses how recent and impending mergers may have an effect on existing centers.
  • Navigating Through the Noise of Big Data - IDG Connect provides an introduction to big data for marketers.

I really enjoyed speaking to the new exhibitors at AALL but especially to those introducing new legal information products or products just being introduced into the legal market. Check out:

  • ModioLegal - You won't see much in the way of marketing material on ModioLegal's site yet because the founder, Kevin Mitchell, has been too busy working with his team and initial clients to create a very interesting current awareness product that allows users to listen to the news rather than read it. He was at AALL 2014 to offer previews to attendees and will be announcing the launch of the product soon.
  • Boopsie - I'm very excited to have further discussions with this vendor who creates mobile apps to library databases, portals, etc., as there are so many ways we (LAC Group) can use Boopsie to work with our Library as a Service Knowledge Services Portal (KSP) clients to deliver their content on the go.
  • Darts-ip - Another very interesting product that they describe as a "Global IP Case Law Database"
  • ICLR - The Incorporated Council of Law Reporting which publishes the official law reports for England and Wales has developed its own online system and is pulling its content off of Lexis. Westlaw still has it. This could be significant for UK firms and US firms with UK offices.
  • Legal Media Group - Not a new vendor but they do have a new online service - Benchmark Judges, that provides rankings but more importantly, lawyer comments about the judges.
Other new exhibitors include those we may already know, including PacerPro, Ravel Law, Lexology, and File & ServeXpress. Additionally, their were new exhibitors that I didn't get to visit including Ntrepid and FiscalNote. A full list of vendors is available on the conference website.

Ah, the weekend. Enjoy!
