LexisNexis Canada is a leading provider of information and services solutions to professionals in law firms, corporations, government and academic institutions.
LexisNexis Canada provides "Total Practice Solutions" that serve the changing needs of legal professionals and help them achieve excellence. LexisNexis® offerings include:
LexisNexis provides customers with access to five billion searchable documents from more than 40,000 legal, news and business sources.
LexisNexis Academic Plus is an educational database. Quicklaw is used in legal practices.
We cancelled many print (hard-copy) legal resources, some of which were quite expensive. See the list in box below.
A new subscription to LexisNexis Academic Plus is set to begin in January 2014.
We also have a trial for HEINOnline until January 10.
These changes do not save any money, but they almost balance out. The online database(s) should make the material more accessible.
The Trent Library purchases some legal material in print format. We don't believe they're getting much use, and the staff time required to maintain them is considerable. If we cancel them, it could cover the cost of most of a subscription to a LexisNexis database.
Trials for LexisNexis Academic Plus and Quicklaw were available for the month of October, 2013. We received almost no comment on whether you support this change. We decided to move ahead.
The following hard-copy legal resources have been cancelled.
Know of other resources that could be replaced by one of the trial databases? Please add your comments at the bottom of this box.
