GPLLA Program: Finding the Knowledge Lost in Information

Please join your colleagues on Wed., April 27th for the program, Finding the knowledge lost in information: How to provide an as-it-happens update service for major legislative and administrative initiatives.

In the autumn of 2008 the financial sky began to fall and legislators began to Act. A group of Pepper Hamilton librarians created a system for tracking, spot-analyzing and delivering news of these developments as they occurred to an eager audience. They have since used this model several times – most recently on the Dodd-Frank bill.  Hear how to find the knowledge that is lost in information – and deliver it to patrons who need that knowledge – now!

The program will be presented by Leslie Proffitt, Research Services Librarian, and Robyn Beyer, Library Director, from Pepper Hamilton.  The event will take place in the Reed Smith cafe from 5:30-7:00PM, with the actual program beginning at 5:30 and running approximately 1 hour.  There will be time at the end of the program for Q & A.

R.S.V.P. to Kristen Rook (krook@morganlewis.com) by Friday, April 22, 2011.
