  Westlaw - Best of NLJ
 

There is a lot going on in today's digest. We've got a veritable cacophony of really cool content for your Wednesday reading pleasure. From reviews of the latest research tools to posts tackling those issues we deal with time and time again, the highlights below offer a little something for everyone. Today, we are talking about Bestlaw, copyright, records management, and the emergence of the new social media czars in our firms and organizations. So pull up a chair, slide on up to your screen, and wrap you head around some of these great articles!

When Thomson Reuters launched it new WestlawNext platform, it was looking to turn legal research on its head. By all indications, WestlawNext definitely shook up the field and has been an early success. Innovation, however, is not always about the big guys. Stosh Jonjak of iBraryGuy is back with us today with an excellent review of Bestlaw - the self-proclaimed "browser extension to add the feature Westlaw forgot". In addition to his review, Stosh asks an even more important question by looking at the implications of third-party innovation such as this. Do not miss The Implications of Bestlaw.

Over at FreePint, Sophie Alexander reminds us of the importance of staying copyright compliant. Though her article, Keeping Control of Copyright Compliance, is focused on UK law, the message she is driving home applies to us all. She writes, "With the dramatic increase in the emergence of digital information over the last 20 years, the challenges presented are far-reaching." What are you doing to meet those challenges? Sophie has some excellent advice. Be sure to give it a good, hard look.

Don Lueders has a bone or two to pick with the concept of "in-place records management". Writing for the SharePoint Records and Information Management Blog, he makes it quite clear that he does believe it is a valid exercise at all. In Don's words, "The truth is, in-place records management is not really records management, at all. It is simply changing a few properties on a few documents and declaring them 'records'." Before you agree or disagree, check out his well-argued rationale at More on In-place Records Management. He makes quite the case for rethinking our practices in this area!

And finally, there is a new type of chief office in town. Meet the social media savvy "chief engagment officer". EContent's Keith Loria introduces us to the new exec who "has responsibility for all listening at all touch point as well as all marketing, engagement, and customer support." That sounds like quite a job if you ask me! Learn more about this emerging opportunity for social media mavens at Moving Beyond the Chief Listening Officer. Times, they are indeed a'changing!
