The ever-changing landscape of legislation, court rulings and administrative policy require that a firm actively manage a collection of resources and tools, both digital and print, to deliver information that is timely and accurate. Wendel Rosen's library assets include print and electronic resources to support our legal team's research needs in various fields, from court decisions to industry trends. Subject areas in the on-site collection include materials covering real estate, intellectual property, antitrust, labor and employment, corporate and securities, environmental, land use, estate planning, tax and intellectual property, among other areas.
In addition to maintaining the collection in a cost-effective way, the firm's librarian is an information specialist, responsible for managing many types of information -- truly the most important resource in a law firm. The librarian frequently conducts research, including case searches, codes and statutes, regulations, and other case matters using on-line legal and non-legal databases and tracking down resources at off-site locations, when they do not exist within the current collection.
