Law book publishers LexisNexis has partnered with ebook distributers OverDrive to make their law content available as ebooks for desktops and mobile devices.
The company says its LexisNexis Digital Library “is an innovative new service that offers legal professionals access to the largest collection of authoritative legal eBook content on all major mobile devices and desktop platforms.”
Organisations are able to share individual ebook titles among multiple users, purchase eBooks centrally and manage their library efficiently while reducing costs by eliminating the storing, filing and distribution of traditional print books.
“As today’s lawyers increasingly use tablets, smart phones and laptops as part of their everyday work, they need more flexible and cost-effective ways to use and share legal eBooks,” said Bob Romeo, CEO of Research & Litigation Solutions at LexisNexis®Legal & Professional.
“Working with OverDrive, we’ve created LexisNexis Digital Library so our customers have quick mobile or desktop access to more trusted legal eBooks than any other source, along with the ability to economically expand and manage their library.”
Books can be accessed on a wide range of devices including Windows and Mac computers, iPad, iPhone, Amazon’s Kindle, Android devices and Blackberry handsets.
Users can also add titles from other publishers to their library.
”We’re proud to work with LexisNexis and add law libraries to our growing network of more than 18,000 libraries worldwide,” said OverDrive CEO Steve Potash.
“Our proven system and large, diverse catalogue of eBooks will complement the LexisNexis offerings and become an asset to the legal community.”
