Dewey B Strategic, the blog of Jean O’Grady, Director of Research Services and Libraries at DLA Piper, and winner of the Public Law Libraries section 2014 Advocate of the Year award, is consistently ranked among the top blogs by the American Bar Association and was voted Best Legal Research/Writing Blog in the ABA Magazine Blawg 100 Poll, ABA Magazine, January 2015. Yesterday, the blog profiled the New York Law Institute. The post highlights NYLI’s legacy and its evolution as an increasingly digital library, providing access to an eBook library of over 75,000 titles along with seamless access to the NYLI catalog, widgets, SharePoint Web Parts, and federated search. NYLI has extended its global reach as well, now including members that have no attorneys or offices in the New York City area. As NYLI moves into the cloud, it provides for 24/7 access and avoids some of the problems of hosting locally, such as periodic building electricity shut-downs, winter storms, and hardware failure. The article concludes that NYLI will continue “to provide valuable new services, innovative technology initiatives, and essential collections.”
