For this new handbook BIALL (British and Irish Association of Law Librarians) has brought together a team of respected experts with many years' experience of the subject on which they write. The BIALL Handbook of Legal Information Management offers authoritative and up-to-date best practice guidance on the key legal information issues for every type of service, focusing particularly on the balance between electronic and printed resources, free and charged services and electronic and on site access.

Beginning with a survey of the growth of law librarianship, and an analysis of different types of services and users, the Handbook goes on to discuss research techniques for hard copy and electronic information, giving tips on how to 'know it all and find it fast'. Subsequent chapters describe how to source and organise different types of legal information; how to choose and purchase library management systems; and how to manage budgets and financial demands.

A chapter on staff management, training and professional development looks both at practical day-to-day staff concerns and future skills issues. Other chapters cover copyright, data protection and ethical issues; knowledge management; and virtual learning environments. T he Handbook concludes with examples of a variety of legal information services which describe the particular professional demands and conditions that they present.
