Carpino recognized as “showcase winner” in all three type-of-library categories

The American Association of Law Libraries’ (AALL) recently recognized BakerHostetler’s legal content services supervisor, Lindsey Carpino, for her role in developing “Review-it,” a crowd sourced review tool that shares feedback on legal resource tools to the community at large. “Review-it” swept all three type-of-library categories at the first-ever AALL Innovation Showcase.

“This award illustrates that Lindsey is a leader in the world of technological advancement,” said director of Legal Content and Research Services Katherine Lowry. “We are extremely lucky to have such an amazing team of innovators, like Lindsey, at BakerHostetler, and recognitions like this spotlight the importance of involving legal content and research services in data-rich projects.”

The AALL Innovation Showcase provides an opportunity for law librarians and legal information professionals to share projects that add value and improve productivity in the legal field. These innovative ideas come in many forms – new offerings, new ways of delivering existing services, applying technology creatively, a new operating model or a tutorial for process improvement, new solutions to a problem, or a new collaboration or special outreach to stakeholders.

“Review-it” was a showcase winner, the top prize awarded, in the government, law firm and law school groups. The tool provides anonymous resource reviews (electronic, print, software and other) to law library committees, saving both time and individual analysis.

“Lindsey is at the forefront of emerging and transformative technologies; she is not only an asset to our digital assets and data management (DADM) group, but to the entire firm as well,” said Ted Kobus, DADM practice group chair.

Carpino regularly supports BakerHostetler’s IncuBaker team that helps lawyers and clients navigate the intersection of digital business, technology and the law. Since its launch, IncuBaker has been a pioneer in the development, and assessment, of revolutionary tools that help our clients improve efficiencies and mitigate risk.
