In addition to her responsibilities as the Director of Information Resources, Carol continues to provide legal and business research to Reinhart attorneys and clients alongside her staff of experienced information specialists. Carol provides research assistance to attorneys in the firm in order to bolster their arguments, increase proficiency, and provides cost-effective and proficient research. As a trained and experienced research specialist, she provides a full spectrum of research and investigative services ranging from answering general reference questions, conducting detailed research projects, and locating difficult to find or obscure information. Her in-depth knowledge of print and electronic resources allows Carol to provide Reinhart attorneys with comprehensive information relating to the subject matter.
Carol recognizes the value of providing specialized research; therefore, she created the IRC Liaison program, which enables her team of researchers to immerse themselves in particular practice groups. The liaison program allows the IRC staff to provide proactive and focused research as each member gains expertise in designated areas of law.
With years of experience, Carol frequently shares her knowledge through presentations to both local and national organizations. Most recently she spoke to the National Business Institute on “Find it Fast and Free on the Net,” but she has spoken to the ABA, Marquette Law School, Paralegal Association of Wisconsin, State Bar of Wisconsin, Wisconsin State Law Library, American Association of Law Libraries, Special Libraries Association, and many other audiences over the course of her career.
