SHAREPOINT AND LAW LIBRARIANS: SURVEY RESULTS This survey was conducted by Catherine Monte. Over 85 firms/organizations participated in the survey from both the United States and Canada. Does your firm currently use SharePoint? Most respondents, 70%, reside in the library, with 13% in KM and fewer numbers in other administrative departments. Which department do you work in? 60% of respondents have 250 or more attorneys, so there is definitely a correlation in terms of firm size. How large is your organization? (by number of attorneys) 13% 26% 28% 12% 21% 24 AALL/ILTA White Paper TECH FINDINGS Approximately 85% of respondents are using SharePoint in some form. The 2010 platform is used primarily, but 2003 is still being used as well. 72% are in the process of migrating from 2003/2007 to 2010. In terms of experience with the tool, 50% have been using the 2007 platform for 3-5 years, but a fair amount of respondents used 2003 as well. This experience is more extensive than I thought it would be. 5% of respondents report that they have also been dabbling in 2013 beta the last few months.
