Law Librarian’s Paper Hits Top-Ten
Law Librarian’s Paper Listed on Top-Ten Downloaded List
A research paper co-written by Leslie A. Pardo, Head of Access Services in the law school’s Ross-Blakley Law Library, has been listed on the Social Science Research Network’s (SSRN) Top Ten downloaded list for “Legal Education.”
The paper, “The Evolving Nature of Faculty Publications,” was jointly written with Jan Ryan Novak, Assistant Director for Public Services at Cleveland-Marshall College of Law Library.
The paper explores the library’s role in managing, preserving and facilitating access to scholarly publications as new technology develops.
According to the paper, as more scholars use digital publishing to disseminate their ideas in a timely manner and to a wider audience, librarians must help develop systems that provide easy access for research and are flexible enough to accommodate new forms of technology, even those not yet imagined.
The authors also examine the benefits of electronic repositories and archives available without a subscription.
The paper will be published in the Spring 2007 issue of
Legal Reference Services Quarterly
and as a chapter in an upcoming book,
Public Services in the 21st Century
