The Conference is the key education and networking opportunity for law librarians to discuss issues and innovations in the legal information sector. And of course, at the conference, we were able to introduce conference attendees to Liberty, our ILMS, and our research management product, illumin.

Live demonstrations showed attendees Liberty is a modern, cloud-based library management system with the flexibility to suit their organization’s needs, with the following features:

  • Clean, contemporary look for patrons

  • Staff and administrators can access a powerful management and analytics interface which allows the easy management, tracking and control of resources.

Attendees also found out how they could manage their organization’s knowledge with illumin. It’s the perfect tool for knowledge and research management as it collects, records, quantifies and précis’s queries and answers provided to staff and clients. illumin features a flexible, customizable request and response management interface.
