So You Want to Be a Law Librarian

Morris Cohen

NYTimes – “MORRIS, the name of the online catalog of the Yale Law School Library, is not an acronym. It’s a tribute to Morris Cohen, the school’s longtime librarian and law professor, who died in December at 83 and was one of America’s great scholarly librarians.”

Thomson Reuters cutting 60 jobs in Eagan

TwinCities.com – “Thomson Reuters, the New York-based publishers of Westlaw and other legal information services, will lay off 60 workers at its campus in Eagan. The company is restructuring and creating jobs while eliminating others in Eagan, which is home to its legal division, Thomson Reuters spokesman John Shaughnessy said today. "Once the entire process is complete, we expect to have around 60 fewer employees on the Eagan campus," he said. The company did not say when the layoffs would take effect.”

They also cut many librarian relations positions this week.

Superheroes in Court at Yale Exhibition

NYTimes.com – “You might think that a rare books librarian at a prestigious institution would be displaying something like Magna Carta. Or maybe the original publication of the opinion in Hawkins v. McGee, the 1929 contracts case filed by a surgery patient whose botched skin graft left him with a hairy hand. (The case is often taught in contracts classes and was made famous in “The Paper Chase.”) And of course the collection does have its medieval tomes and papers of esteemed jurists — it is, after all, considered to be one of the finest collections of rare law books in the world. But the library also has its playful side, and has archived, for example, an assortment of bobblehead dolls representing members of the Supreme Court of the United States.”
