I was recently honored to have been featured in the newsletter of the Southern California Association of Law Libraries (SCALL). I have been thinking quite a bit lately about the overall future of our profession and the fear that seems to have gripped many within it. Times are changing, no doubt. But be that as it may, I am as optimistic about law librarianship today as I was on the day I landed my first firm gig. Yes, there are some really big challenges ahead. But they are opportunity-laden. The highest hurdle is simply seeing the possibilities.
My advice in the article “The Box is Dead: Don’t Think Outside It, Transcend It!” is this:
Do not fear or overlook those opportunities that truly challenge your conception of what it means to be a librarian or to offer library services.
