Law Librarians Featured in Google's Tips of the Trade Campaign

The latest edition of the Google Librarian Newsletter is now available.

Featured is the "Tips of the Trade" campaign in which Google invited librarians to send them tips, ideas, and stories about innovative ways they've used Google tools to help patrons find information. Google produced a short movie which was featured at the ALA (American Library Assoc.) annual meeting.

One of the librarians in the movie is Joy Hanson of Duke University School of Law Library. She shares how she earned a "You rock!" from a cite checker for finding a document in five minutes using Google after the student had searched for hours to no avail. I love it when that happens!

LLAW's own Mary Koshollek (Godfrey & Kahn, Milw.) is also featured on the Tips of the Trade web site. Mary describes how Google Alerts can be a great tool for current awareness and competitive intelligence.
