How do you seek information

There is new research on How College Students Seek Information in the Digital Age reported on at thought leader Stephen Abram's blog Stephen's Lighthouse. The report says that college students generally use the same trusted sources no matter what their research needs. I hope that people with research problems in my organization are not in that same rut.

Escape the rut:

Wikipedia used in Canadian judgments

The Stream which is a new blog from the BC Courthouse Libraries has some excellent coverage on Wikipedia used in Canadian judgments, and the relevance of Wikipedia as a legal research source.

There are also some very recent academic articles on this topic posted on SSRN.

I recently spoke to the CBA Research Lawyers South subsection on the topic of Social Media for legal research. My slides and the handout are available.
