RSS, Courts, and Screencasts

It sometimes takes me aback when I realize how different information sharing has become from even just a few years ago.  One of the things that I do differently is to create small video screencasts to answer questions that start “how do I …”.  A good example of this came in from a librarian who wanted to show her lawyers how to follow the Ontario courts to be alerted about new opinions.  The librarian wanted to show them how to use the court-provided RSS feeds but wasn’t sure how to get them started. I’ve written and given presentations about RSS in the past but this needed to be something very focused.

I improve information access and lead information teams. My books on finding information and managing it and practicing law using cloud computing reflect my interest in information management, technology, law practice, and legal research. I've been a library director in Canada and the US, as well as directing the American Bar Association's Legal Technology Resource Center. I speak and write frequently on information, technology, law library, and law practice issues.
