You Should “Categorically” Remember to Use Our Blog as a Knowledge Base: eDiscovery Trends

As a daily blog that has been around for over 5 years, eDiscovery Daily has published over 1,310 posts to date. We’ve covered a lot of different categories related to eDiscovery over that time.  But, do you know how to take advantage of the “Categories” feature on this blog to check them out?

We have yet to remove any posts that we’ve published from our site – as a result, we have developed quite a knowledge base resource about eDiscovery topics. Even though I’ve written most of the posts on this blog, I find myself using it from time to time, because, honestly, my brain can only retain so much.  It’s only a matter of time before I post something I’ve already posted without realizing it!  :o)

One of the useful features that our site provides is the Library section. You should see it on the left sidebar underneath the Subscription Center. There are two sub-sections that can be useful, Categories and Monthly Archives. As the name implies, Monthly Archives provides an entry for each month’s set of posts – all the way back to the launch of the blog in September 2010. It’s a great way to catch up on topics if you’ve missed them.

As for the Categories sub-section, you may have noticed at the bottom of each post under the Disclaimer, there is a “Filed under” section to show the categories that the post is filed under. Most posts relate to at least a couple of categories (for example, this one relates to Electronic Discovery and Industry Trends; not surprisingly, almost every post relates to electronic discovery because, after all, this is an eDiscovery blog).

The Categories drop down in the Library section enables you to see the classification categories that we use and select a category of interest. So, if you’re interested in viewing the posts related to eDiscovery Case Law (440 (!) of them to date, including yesterday’s post), simply select ‘Case Law’ from the drop down and the site will display a listing of post summaries, starting with the most recent post.

Do you have an interest in activities within the EDRM (198) or want to know more about Information Governance (148)? Want to know more about Federal eDiscovery Rules (82, including the rules newly adopted just last week) or State eDiscovery Rules (35)? Would you like to review cases where Sanctions (189) have been applied, or at least considered? How about articles related to Searching (281) and searching best practices?  One simple click is all it takes to get there.

Feel free to not only read each daily post, but also to use this blog as a knowledge base resource. If it’s a significant eDiscovery trend, key case law decision or best practice over the past 5+ years, we probably have it here.

So, what do you think? Are there additional categories that you’d like to see us track? Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
