Andrew Martineau’s Reinforcing the ‘Crumbling Infrastructure of Legal Research’ Through Court-Authored Metadata, Law Libr. J. (Forthcoming) “examines the role of the court system in publishing legal information and how that role should be viewed in a digital, online environment. In order to ensure that the public retains access to useful legal information into the future, courts should fully embrace the digital format by authoring detailed, standardized metadata for their written work product—appellate-level case law, especially. If court systems took full advantage of the digital format, this would result in immediate, identifiable improvements in free and low-cost case law databases. Looking to the future, we can speculate on how court-authored metadata might impact the next generation of “A.I.”-powered research systems. Ultimately, courts should view their metadata responsibilities as an opportunity to “reinforce” the structure of the law itself.”
