At times, I weary of surveys and the lack of "new" that stems from those surveys. Today we offer up comments from two veteran information professionals. In one we get a distinct look at the results for "Best New Products and Features" of Jean O'Grady's Hits and Misses survey. Co-editor John DiGilio offers further insights into law firm research and librarianship. While neither may offer fresh insights both are discussing important trends and analysis that legal information professionals should note.

Worthy Mentions

Jean O'Grady provides insights into her Hits and Misses Survey results in a corrected post. In short the best new products and features top out with Westlaw Edge, Cheetah, Practical Law Automated Documents and Manzama Insights. Read the full results in Corrected: Hits and Misses Survey Part 2: Best New Products and Features Released in 2018.

One Survey: Two Views

John DiGilio's More thoughts on law firm research and librarian presents insights from a survey of internal LAC information professionals and respondents working in law firms and law firm libraries. Questions about the essence of "librarian" and "library" spark some interesting food for thought. From my perspective, some of this feels a bit old hat. However it has merit as information professionals in a competitive market seek to be a part of the winning formula. So read on and find your valuable takeaways in this insightful response to survey results on Legal Librarianship in 2019-2020.
