Description

In the blink of the eye, the information landscape that we work in has changed profoundly from information scarcity to information abundance, from mediated services to self service, from print to digital, from serving baby boomers to millennials. We all know change is happening and have taken time to explore online sites like YouTube, MySpace, Facebook, Flickr and others, but what does this mean for info pros? What is just hype or entertainment value and what is actually transforming the way legal professionals work or want to work if they could? What should we be doing as information professionals to provide services today and tomorrow? If the sky is the limit, what should we pay attention to and be doing now?
