I did not attend the American Association of Law Libraries conference this year, but from what colleagues tell me and from articles read in the past few weeks, legal research is a concern to not only law librarians but also supervising attorneys and judges.

My general impression of the concern is that finding information is so easy — Google — that law students and young attorneys do not think about what it is they are doing. Type in a few keywords, and information is found. Lexis and Westlaw are essentially treated as legal versions of the Internet. Type in a few keywords, and information is found.
