The Quest for Law is a study addressing the future of law libraries and legal information management. Three different aspects provide starting points: the impact of information technology (IT), the internationalisation, and the growth of legal information. The study analyses a number of factors affecting the possibilities of efficient legal information management. In addition, regulative aspects of legal information management are addressed, such as copyright, freedom of information, privacy, etc. The book also provides extensive references to Internet resources of relevance for legal research.
