The eBook Experience

The LexisNexis eBook experience requires two elements: the LexisNexis eBook file and a software program or e-reader device that can display that file. First, you'll need to determine which device or e-reading application you would like to use to view your electronic publication. If you are a novice to eBooks, we recommend you try Kindle® reading apps (these provide superior functionality for desktop computers, as well as e-reader apps for major mobile devices) or Adobe® Digital Editions for desktop computers.

Most LexisNexis eBooks are available in epub and mobi formats. Newsletter and bulletin publications are produced electronically in PDF format. The eBook format you choose will depend on the e-reader software you are using. For example, epub eBooks are compatible with Apple® products, while mobi eBooks are compatible with Kindle applications.

Once you have an e-reader application downloaded to your desktop or mobile device, you will be ready to access your LexisNexis eBook. For more information, check out our FAQs page.

Migration Efforts

In our changing legal environment, LexisNexis continually develops more efficient ways for you to access current and comprehensive information—creating research solutions that fit the way you work and live. To accomplish this, we routinely evaluate new formats that will best meet customer needs as the legal publishing industry evolves.

Over the next 18 months, LexisNexis plans to migrate select CD and newsletter titles exclusively to eBook format to improve timeliness and reduce our impact on the environment. CD technology has become out-of-date, and CD drives are no longer standard features on laptop computers. Newer technology offered by e-readers allows users to highlight, make notes, print and bookmark—enhancements that LexisNexis eBooks utilize to improve your research experience.

In instances where a single product is shipped on a CD, we feel eBook format provides a better option for customers. We do not have plans to migrate CD libraries, prison solutions and DVDs, or forms CDs to eBook format at this time.
