Published online by Cambridge University Press:  31 July 2008

Loyita Worley
Loyita Worley is Head of Library & Information Services at Richards Butler which is a large international law firm. Her information experience has included jobs at the British Standards Institution, Civil Aviation Authority and the Law Society before she joined Richards Butler nearly fourteen years ago. More recently she has become involved with Richards Butler's knowledge management initiatives and is Project Manager for their know how database. She has been an active member of BIALL for many years and was Membership Secretary and then Chair in 1997/98. She has contributed to conferences and seminars and is also the author of several articles on legal information topics.


Whilst preparing for my talk at the BIALL Conference and bearing in mind the session during which I was speaking, it struck me how many things had changed since I started out in law librarianship. The foremost of these is definitely the development of information technology, which has had an immediate and prolonged impact on how we provide services to our users in both law firms and in academic libraries. This is something of which we are all aware – the shift from paper, firstly to CD Rom, then online and latterly to internet based services.
