Who is David Whelan?
My complete resume/CV
I use this Web site – and a number of other blogs and sites – to have hands-on experience with technology and content management, and keep focused on legal technology and information areas. Over the years, I have worked in academia and for non-profits wearing hats as diverse as library director, chief information officer, electronic services librarian, adjunct lecturer on networked library systems, and Web team manager. I frequently speak at professional conferences and write in law and information publications about topics that interest me.
If you’d like to contact me, e-mail is the most reliable way and I will do my best to get in touch as quickly as I can.
Looking forward to hearing from you.

Other Places to Find David
I contribute to the Slaw.ca blog with a regular legal technology column. It varies from specific, geek-oriented “how to” posts to comments about how lawyers and law firms can or perhaps might want to use technology.
I blog at Finding Legal Information (FLI) on research topics to help lawyers and their staff to find and manage information on the Web. The blog is an outlet for interesting tips and information that I come across as I try to keep my own search and information management skills sharpened.
I am experimenting with documenting the nature that appears in a very small area in Newmarket, Ontario. The photos are of wildlife and seasonal changes beside the Holland River. I am hoping it will help me to hone my skills of observation, increase my patience, and cause me to be more deliberative.
