LexisNexis Legal eBooks Now Available in the Amazon Kindle Store
Legal professionals and law students now have yet another way to get eBooks from LexisNexis
August 23, 2012 — NEW YORK – LexisNexis® Legal & Professional (www.lexisnexis.com), a leading provider of content and technology solutions, today announced that a large selection of its legal eBooks are now available in the Amazon® Kindle® Store. Additionally, LexisNexis® eBooks on Kindle or through Kindle reading apps are also accessible through the recently launched LexisNexis® Digital Library solution.
“As legal professionals and law students steadily embrace and use eBooks, our strategy is to provide them a wide diversity of options rather than forcing them into one format, one reader type or one application,” said Bob Romeo, CEO of Research and Litigation Solutions at LexisNexis Legal & Professional. “Offering LexisNexis eBooks via the Kindle store and reading applications is an important new component of that approach, and we are pleased to offer our collection on one of the world’s leading eBook shops.”
LexisNexis eBooks on Amazon.com
Effective immediately, a collection of several hundred electronic titles from the LexisNexis collection is available for purchase in the Amazon.com Kindle Store in a number of categories within the Non-Fiction department under “Law.” For example, the initial offering of LexisNexis eBooks includes titles covering topics such as bankruptcy, immigration, tax and many more practice areas and jurisdictions. For law school students, textbooks, casebooks and study aids for many first, second and third year law students are now available, along with popular study guides such as the Understanding and Questions & Answers series – with more being added for the fall semester.
LexisNexis eBooks purchased via Amazon.com are readable using Kindle or any of the many free Kindle reading apps. For those studying or practicing law, this combines purchasing convenience with compatibility across the most popular tablet and mobile devices for an integrated and highly portable reading experience. As with all Kindle books, customers reading on Kindle or one of the free Kindle apps can sync their library as well as annotations they make to their books between devices—allowing for a seamless research experience from desktop computers to mobile devices and tablets.
Additionally, regardless of how they are acquired, many LexisNexis eBooks now also feature embedded links to valuable primary and analytical legal content on Lexis Advance for users who have a subscription, with more titles offering links going forward. Prices for LexisNexis eBooks in the Kindle Store vary depending on individual publications, and more titles will be added over time.
Kindle Available to Private Law Libraries via LexisNexis Digital Library
LexisNexis eBook titles on Kindle or via Kindle apps are now also available to borrow from private law libraries using LexisNexis Digital Library. Launched by LexisNexis earlier this year, LexisNexis Digital Library offers law firms, corporations, government and academic institutions a single solution to buy, manage and efficiently distribute eBooks among multiple users from the full inventory of more than 1,400 titles from LexisNexis regardless of eBook format or devices used by a reader. With the service, organizations can significantly reduce the costs associated with storing, filing and distributing traditional print books. Additionally, because the new LexisNexis Digital Library is publisher agnostic, users can also add titles from other publishers and centrally manage their loan – eliminating the inefficiency of using multiple platforms or sites to manage an entire collection.
In addition to their availability in the Kindle Store and via the LexisNexis Digital Library, eBook titles from LexisNexis are available at the company’s online store.
