In the current law firm environment of constantly shifting organizational structures, contracting budgets, and evolving user needs, the need to show and communicate value is ever-present. Whether it is through curating meaningful narratives from anecdotal feedback or by collecting and analyzing hard numbers, law librarians need to embrace what is referred to in the AALL digital white paper, Defining ROI: Law Library Best Practices, as the “value challenge.” While meeting the value challenge is neither a quick or easy process, it is crucial activity that law librarians need to take in order to survive—and thrive—in their institutions. The panelists will discuss the challenges and opportunities inherent in providing tangible law library ROI, and share real world examples and transferrable experiences and inspire others to embark on their own value challenge journey.
