Experiences and CLE: Save space while improving access to titles with a digital library strategy

With greater pressure on budgets—and an increased need to make books available from anywhere—organizations have taken proactive steps to offer more mobile and digital options. Many are choosing a convenient eLending approach using LexisNexis® Digital Library, which provides mobile access to primary law, deskbooks, code books, treatises and more.

This offering began in 2012 with a joint initiative by LexisNexis and OverDrive®, the digital library solutions provider chosen by 30,000+ libraries, schools and colleges worldwide. Since then, a range of practices and academic libraries have benefited in significant ways.

Greater mobility: Users appreciate compatibility with all major mobile devices, including computers, smartphones and tablets so they can read legal resources or prepare for class from anywhere.

Simplified library management: Libraries can buy, update and distribute publications electronically with easy access to title usage reports.

Space and cost management: Decision makers can optimize overhead and the library’s physical footprint by migrating a portion of titles to electronic resources.
