LexisNexis Increases Legal Ebook Access

LexisNexis signed an agreement with Follett Higher Education Group to offer more ebook access to law students and professors. Follett joins LexisNexis’ stable of ebookstore partners in offering students codes for LexisNexis ebooks in Follett’s brick-and-mortar stores and online at efollett.com. Students redeem their purchased codes and download the ebooks at the LexisNexis Store.

“Today’s law students were born digital and eBooks are simply ‘books’ to them, and that is why our strategy is to meet and exceed their expectations in the media format they want,” says Susan Slisz, LexisNexis’ VP of research. “Law professors are also embracing eBooks and increasingly need a fast and reliable way to find and review eBook titles for possible inclusion in their class curriculum.”

To meet this need, LexisNexis launched the LexisNexis Digital Library for Professor Review Copies. While browsing the LexisNexis Digital Library of more than 1,900 legal titles, students can check out ebooks for their mobile devices from LexisNexis’ distribution partner OverDrive (where they can also search the OverDrive Marketplace for content) or read ebooks in their web browsers. With LexisNexis Digital Library for Professor Review Copies, law school professors have restricted access to the core collection of LexisNexis law school etextbooks, study aids, and teachers’ manuals for review.
