Upcoming Canadian Association of Law Libraries Webinar on Free Content for Current Awareness Services

The Canadian Association of Law Libraries (CALL) will host a webinar entitled Staying Alert: The 411 on Free Subscription Based Content on October 23, 2013 from, 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. EDT.

The speakers will be Martha Murphy, Head Librarian at the Ontario Workplace Tribunals Library, and Kay Samuels, library manager at WeirFoulds LLP:
"Are you looking for some new sources to add to your existing current awareness service? Are you planning on a new media monitoring strategy for your library? Does your firm require daily updates on news, legislation, case decisions, and journal table of contents? Are you tired of the complaints from staff of the 10 article limit on some news sites? Then you will be interested in hearing how current awareness services are rolled out in a private law firm library and a government law library serving multiple tribunals."
"The Law Library plays a critical role in tracking and disseminating news, legislation, case law, securities and research. There is a proliferation of sources from legal and media monitoring vendors to blogs and wikis. Library staff can filter and customize content in a number of ways to best suit our clients and disseminate using SharePoint Corporate Intranets, Library webpages, wikis, emails and newsletters."
The webinar costs only $45.20 for members and $67.80 for non-members. A recording will be available to registered participants. There is an online registration form on the CALL website.
