SharePoint’s greatest advantage is that it can be used in so many ways, from collaboration to workflow to document management to creating intranets. Yet these general capabilities can also be a drawback, because features go broad but not deep. Using SharePoint for very specific requirements – as in law firm libraries – usually requires third-party add-ins or customization.
The 2013 AALL conference, in Seattle July 13-16, will include what they’re calling a ‘Deep Dive’ session into SharePoint on Sunday, July 14.
At this session, you can see how SharePoint is being used in law libraries and by law firms. Nina Platt, who is LAC Group’s Senior Director of Legal Market Services and editor of the PinHawk Law Library newsletter, is one of the featured speakers at this session. She will provide some law firm library examples in her presentation.

If you are going to be there and you have an interest in SharePoint, I highly recommend the Deep Dive session. And I invite you to stop by the LAC Group booth to meet Nina and our other law library and legal information management professionals.
If you can’t attend the show, I’ll be writing about it in future blog posts.
