Susannah Tredwell over at Slaw, "Canada's Legal Magazine," has an interesting article in which she discusses the changes law libraries have undergone during the Covid pandemic, and whether these changes will stick. How will library services be affected post-Covid? She covers several topics:
- Death of the looseleaf?
- Greater adoption of digital library resources by users, in which she points out the dramatic increase in print resources now available online as well.
- Library space continues to shrink (or disappear completely?)
- Greater flexibility in how publishers licence (Canadian spelling) products?
- Increase in library staff working remotely.
