A Blog’s Life at the Marian Gould Gallagher Law Library, UW

August 17, 2006

The new Law Library Journal issue has an article by Mary Whisner about a blog she writes as Assistant Librarian for Reference Services at the Marian Gould Gallagher Law Library, University of Washington School of Law.  The blog is Trial Ad Notes, and the article is A Blog’s Life, 98 Law Libr. J. 559 (2006).  It is a fascinating read!  We follow Mary from the concept of starting a blog as a way of providing a current awareness service to “an untapped market,” the law school’s trial advocacy instructors, to execution, evolution, and beyond.  Interesting to see that she faces the same challenges that we face in the law firm market. The brevity of a blog post is appealing; the challenge is getting the attention of your patrons…and keeping their interest.  By the way, Footnote 5 mentions a blog by Trevor Rosen at a Baltimore law firm: Maryland Law.
