Welcome David Whelan to the Great Library, to Slaw and to Canada

While the Law Society and Great Library websites are unusually silent on the topic, the American library blogosphere is proudly proclaiming that David Whelan has been appointed Manager of Legal Information for the Law Society of Upper Canada Pause to note that Great Librarian was a wonderful and hallowed title – why would it have been abandoned?
He has written High Octane Internet Legal Research, recently published by the Ohio State Bar Association, 2007 and is obviously dynamic and talented.
From a Slaw perspective his most interesting accomplishment is his work as Director of the American Bar Association’s Legal Technology Resource Centre in Chicago, which acted as a clearing house for information on how technology could be deployed in the practice of law. He took over LTRC from David Hambourger and handed it on to Catherine Sanders Reach.
Welcome David.


  1. Welcome indeed. Let’s talk about Slaw, David — when you have a moment.

  2. It’s great to be returning to Canada! Thanks for the kind words. I’m looking forward to joining the Canadian legal information community and working with SLAW denizens.

  3. Welcome to Toronto, David! We look forward to meeting you.
