Scholarl-ly Research

Case searching on Google Scholar has come a long way since its debut. With enhanced search functionality and growing collection of content, it has become a frequent go-to resource for many legal researchers. Mark Giangrande shows us that with a little know-how, we can unlock its hidden potential. He also leaves us with this bit of powerful insight. He writes, "Google is hardly a substitute for any of the commercial databases as it does not have the value-added features such as secondary sources and others. At the same time, anyone searching Scholar's case law database can do so with a good amount of confidence in my opinion." Do you agree? Read his tips and takes at: Google Scholar Case Law Evolves.

Bloomberg Upsets Corporate Cart

Bloomberg BNA continues its strategic assault on the legal research market with the unveiling of its revolutionary Bloomberg Law: Corporate Transactions product. Touted as a "new web-based product that includes a patented technology-driven drafting workflow tool, analytics powered by Bloomberg's proprietary financial databases", it's goal is to enhance and improve the workflows of transactional practitioners. Dewey B. Strategic's Jean O'Grady got to preview this new tool and is first to market with an in-depth review. Do not miss: Bloomberg BNA Levels the Corporate Deal Landscape with Launch of Corporate Drafting Platform Leveraging Analytics and Enhancing Workflow.

Too Much Information?

Apparently having too much of a good thing really is a problem. As Nick Milton of Knoco points out, information overload has detrimental effects beyond mere headaches and frustration from the over-saturation. He writes, "an oversupply of knowledge (full databases not being used, loads of stuff filed and not read, loads of blogs with no readers, "knowledge lakes" and "knowledge mountains") devalues knowledge." It's a problem that really does demand our attention as information brokers. Tap into Nick's thinking in: The dangers of knowledge oversupply.
