Law Librarians: Indispensable Digital Stewards of Legal Information

  • DIgital Law Librarian

Recently I read this blog post about digital law librarianship. It has a great closing paragraph:

"In a world where the legal landscape is rapidly digitizing, law librarians have not become obsolete; instead, they have evolved into indispensable digital stewards of legal information. They continue to provide essential support, education, and expertise to legal professionals in navigating the vast and ever-expanding digital realm of legal information. We should bring awareness to society that there may be an absence of a physical library, but the role of the law librarian remains to turn the wheels of justice and legal scholarship forward in the digital age."

While AI hallucinations and threats of disinformation grab the headlines, law librarians continue to be trusted curators of legal information.
