The Vibe

One of the challenges many lawyers face is keeping up to date with developments in their area of practice. Most are time poor and/or ‘mobile’ so don’t have time to sit and read emails on current awareness. Social media offers an alternative to the traditional dissemination of items through tablets and mobile phones.

The Victoria Legal Aid Library uses the Flipboard platform and has created an online magazine titled The Vibe. Although primarily aimed at our lawyers’ practice areas, it is accessible to the wider public.

We are interested in exploring other means of using social media to communicate with our lawyers and are wondering if any libraries use social media for their current awareness services. I’d be happy to share responses if anyone is interested.
