As the legal community adjusts to the COVID-19 new normal
virtual work environment, law librarians face unique challenges. It is
vitally important for law librarians to be proactive in monitoring the needs of
the respective practice areas they support, including ensuring adequate
research is being performed in those hot Covid-19 practice areas and ensuring
alerts have been set up to monitor late breaking legislative and regulatory
changes. Additionally, now is the time to proactively communicate the existence
of virtual research tools and provide training when lawyers cannot fall back on

It’s National Library Week, and we at PLI are especially proud to celebrate this year. Access to information is never more important than amid a global health crisis.
