And so a page is turned

As a group of information workers catering specifically to the legal and information professions, we have experimented with various vehicles to make information accessible quickly and easily to those who need it. More of that on the KwaZulu-Natal Law Society Library's website : http://www.lawlibrary.co.za

News articles have frequently provided details that make the tracing of legal references so much easier, sometimes listing locations or identities that direct researchers to the source of judgments or other authoritative documents.

The choice of name for our blog, Know-Go Zone, is indicative of our aim to provide a one-stop information service to our target audience and anyone else who is interested in legal and IT developments.

With no more ado, to today's links . . .
