The Private Law Libraries Group of LLSDC met on Thursday January 16th for a presentation by Christopher Raymond, the Digital Library Product Manager with LexisNexis.  Chris discussed the basics of eBooks, along with the features and benefits of the virtual library experience for both patrons and librarians.  He began the presentation with some eye-opening statistics, including that eBook usage has increased over time from 65% in 2011 to 79% in 2012, with work-related use growing as well.  Chris also discussed how the Lexis Digital Library offerings and Lexis Digital Principles address the legal library challenges faced by most law librarians.  Chris certainly showed that eBooks aren’t going anywhere and librarians should be aware of the options for use within their firms.  If you want more information or a trial ID, please visit www.lexisnexis.com/ebooks/lending or email eBooks@lexisnexis.com.
