Blawgosphere and scholarship
An article today on Law dot com asks "Is the future of legal scholarship in the blogosphere?" The author, Margaret Schilt (faculty services librarian at the University of Chicago law library), takes a thoughtful look at law blogs written by legal scholars. One of her conclusions is that even if blogging will never replace traditional legal scholarship, blogs are where the scholarly dialogue increasingly takes place." She also suggests that law librarians need to figure out how to preserve this increasingly important online source of scholarship.
