Social networking for law librarians and friends of law libraries
We have so little time with our students in first year LRW, that we can't cover much of the basics. We try to give a little bit on tours, a little in journal training (we have 1L's doing cite-checking here - and that's a whole other issue!), a little in class, and put research guides on our website that they probably never read. Of course we teach it over and over again at the desk - not the most efficient way to cover it, but probably effective for those who take the time to ask. We are currently working on implementing online quickie video tutorials (2-3 minutes) that will cover these topics. We're using camtasia and captivate to produce them. However, since we are a) switching to Vista and b) migrating our entire website to a CMS this summer, I suspect these may not be ready to launch for fall - though I really do hope for the best!
