Current Awareness Services in Law Libraries

Susannah Tredwell has written an excellent overview on of the kinds of current awareness services law libraries are providing to their clients:
"This service lets lawyers know about new or proposed developments in legislation, case law of interest, and articles relevant to their practice. It can also function as a business development tool by keeping lawyers up-to-date with what is happening in a specific industry or by letting them know if a client (or competitor) has been mentioned in the news."
The article covers journals and newsletters, legislative tracking, case law, and news alerts.

Tredwell is the Manager of Library Services at DLA Piper (Canada) LLP in Vancouver.
