I expect it's because, faced with change, people - even lawyers - are more reserved than excited. What is sad is that this part of any transition requires pain to get us to the other side. If we only could think of the fascinating times we live in. Upon reflection, even this Scandinavian would crack a smile.

Mark Giangrande, Law Librarians blog, announces the retirement of Westlaw Classic on July 1, 2014. I'm guessing this is only for law school libraries?
