In Jane Pribek’s most recent Legal Cents column, “E-readers gaining popularity in the legal community,” she discusses the prevalence of these devices and number of legal titles available in electronic format.
Well, as if to reinforce that these types of electronic devices are becoming commonplace, LexisNexis just announced that beginning Monday more than 100 new titles will be released in e-book format. Both .ePub and .mobi formats will be available, making the treatises compatible with both major e-readers (e.g. Kindle) and tablets (e.g. iPad).
LexisNexis states in the announcement I received, “LexisNexis eBooks offer you an exciting new medium to help (librarians) and your attorneys conduct research on the go, without having to be connected to the Internet! On a plane, on a train, in court, or at home, LexisNexis eBooks provide the traditional book reading experience in an electronic form.”
For more information on the titles currently available, check out the eBooks page on the Lexis website. Then you might want to check back in April.
