PLI Content No Longer Available Via Westlaw

From November 1st, 2012 onwards, no PLI content will be available on Westlaw.

After a twenty-five year partnership with Westlaw, PLI content will no longer be accessible via the Thomson Reuters Westlaw site. PLI was unable to reach an agreement for ongoing distribution by Westlaw of PLI content, including both PLI Course Handbooks and PLI Treatises.  Presently and in the future, you may continue to access all PLI Treatises on Bloomberg Law.

PLI continues to offer access to our Course Handbooks, Treatises, Answer Books, Legal Forms and Program Transcripts via the Discover PLUS eBook platform. Please feel free to contact your PLI account manager, Library Relations at libraryrelations@pliedu or (877) 900-5291 or Customer Service at (800) 260-4754 with any questions or concerns.

Things Other Than Westlaw

The ABA recently released the 2008 Legal Technology Survey Report, which showed that the number of lawyers doing online research is larger than ever, and the majority of them are using free online sources, rather than the traditional Westlaw and Lexis.

Which leads the Law Librarian Blog to ask law school and firm librarians: Are you showing these lawyers how do to these things? Come on now, where else did they pick this kind of behavior up?
Are Librarians Training Lawyers and Law Students in the Use of Alternatives to LexisNexis and Westlaw?
