  1. At Courthouse Libraries BC we have experimented using social media to tag and redistribute legal information. Another account of ours, @BCLex, ‘listens’ to the RSS feeds of dozens of law blogs relating to BC practice, and appends a topical hashtag (#clbcFAM, #clbcLIT, #clbcPI, etc.) to tweets about them.
    It’s allowed us to offer a window into fresh content by practice area, since we also draw in these #clbc hashtags into our Practice Portals. Next time you tweet on a legal topic, amplify your reach by adopting a CLBC hashtag—your tweet will automatically appear on our site. (Our Twitter guide is here: http://www.courthouselibrary.ca/practice/twitterguide.aspx)
    Other legal orgs have dabbled in hashtags somewhat, and I’d be very interested to know whether ones like #bclegal are too general, or whether it’s all people feel they need.
    Thanks for putting all the major BC law org Twitter accounts in one list!
