I was a panelist on one of the two American Association of Law Libraries sponsored panels at ALM’s LegalWeek. June Liebert, Cheryl Smith. Cynthia Brown and reviewed the life cycle of technology adoption from product selection through testing, marketing, training and measuring adoption. Lawrence Colletti, executive Producer at Legal Talk Network invited us to sit for an interview. Listen to the podcast below –
Many lawyers may not know they need a new product, but their support staff is always on the lookout for technology that will keep the firm running at its best. Laurence Colletti hosts this On The Road report with a panel of law librarians about their presentation about getting lawyers to use new tools. They discuss how they select products through research, testing, promotion, and review. Through demonstrations of use and data, they are able to show lawyers what tools will help them get the best results for their clients.
