I wanted to call your attention to an upcoming King County Bar Association CLE: The Cybersleuth’s Guide to the Internet. It will be held on November 14th, 2014 at the Convention Center downtown and is approved for CLE credit, as well. Attendees also get a free copy of the newest edition of The Cybersleuth’s Guide.
I’ve written about how helpful I think the Cybersleuth’s Guide is and I’m excited to attend the seminar and learn more tips and tricks. I’d love to see some other LLOPSters there! You might also want to let your attorneys know about it. Registration is online via the KCBA. I hear that previous programs have sold out so don’t delay!

Governor Jay Inslee has proclaimed October as National Information Literacy Awareness Month in Washington State! Thank you for your partnership on this important initiative. As stated by the National Forum for Information Literacy (NFIL): “As a member of the 21st century workforce skills movement, the practice of information literacy nurtures the development of a critical skill set needed so that any learner and/or worker can thrive and compete effectively in today’s global digital economy. As we move further into the 21st century, we are convinced that information literacy will become the standard-bearer for academic achievement, workforce productivity, competitive advantage, and national security.”
