Practical Educational Resource for E-Discovery Community Available for Download from EDRM
St. Paul, Minnesota – May 2, 2016 – EDRM, the leading standards organization for the e-discovery market, announced today the release of a downloadable PDF version of its EDRM Glossary, a comprehensive glossary of e-discovery terms. At more than 330 pages, the download is the industry’s most comprehensive listing of electronic discovery terms. The glossary, in searchable PDF format, lists terms in alphabetical order with definitions and includes attributions where available.
“Experienced legal and e-discovery professionals have developed a fairly broad understanding of the processes and terms related to our craft,” says George Socha, EDRM co-founder, “but none of us knows it all, and the technologies and language surrounding e-discovery continue to advance. Our goal with the glossary is to provide a tool that will enhance e-discovery knowledge and understanding, and evolve with the industry.”
First launched in 2006, the EDRM Glossary includes terms from specialized glossaries on collection, metrics, search and information governance, as well as glossary content on search and predictive coding from Herb Roitblat, and the Grossman-Cormack glossary on technology-assisted review. Specialized glossaries are also available on the EDRM website.
The complete EDRM glossary is available as a free resource to EDRM members and the e-discovery community, and may be downloaded in PDF format from the EDRM site.
The glossary is a collaborative resource that will be continuously updated by EDRM as well as by contributions from e-discovery industry members. Readers may submit a new term with definition, or a new definition for an existing term, online at the EDRM Glossary Submission page.
