Will Palfrey's Appointment Lead to Technological Innovations at HLS?
John Palfrey has been appointed Associate Dean, Library and Information Resources and a tenured professor of law at Harvard Law School. Bios here, here and here. John's name should ring a bell. He is Executive Director of the Berkman Center for Internet and Society and an accomplished author. Among his many works are Access Denied: The Practice and Policy of Global Internet Filtering (MIT Press, 2008)(co-editor and contributor)[Law Librarian Blog post] and Born Digital: Understanding the First Generation of Digital Natives (with Urs Gasser)(Basic Books, forthcoming August 24, 2008)[Amazon]. About technology in the law school curriculum, see his What is Technology's Role, an op-ed that was published in The National Law Journal on November 8, 2006. -- Joe Hodnicki

I am, of course, biased in this matter, but aside from my utmost confidence in JP's leadership and vision, what's particularly worth noting is his new title, which reaches beyond the traditional "library" to include "information resources." I think that John will be among the cadre of new leaders who will find the pivoting point to redefine the meaning of "library" for this century.
