While acknowledging that much of what librarians do is research focused on answering specific questions, Ms. Whisner suggests that there are virtues in being a "just looking" shopper of legal information. Browsing through resources such as blogs, Web sites, and newsletters allows librarians to build knowledge about what's available and to identify items that can be shared with patrons, colleagues, and themselves.
