Released on: Feb. 12, 2014
Running Time: 01:00:34

Please note that CLE credit is not available for this program.

Taken from the briefing Thinking About Changing from Two to One Legal Database Vendor: How Do You Make That Decision? recorded January, 2014.

Our new economic world continually requires cost savings as a constant standard. Law Firms, Legal Departments and Government Libraries have subscribed to major legal vendors since the 1980s. But currently there are questions as to whether this should remain the standard. If a choice has to be made, how will that affect the efficiency of legal research?

This briefing, featuring instruction from experts in library management, was conceived and created in cooperation with the Law Library Association of Greater New York (LLAGNY) and Practising Law Institute (PLI). This briefing was chaired by Janice E. Henderson, Patricia Barbone and Jill Gray.

Lecture Topics  [Total Time: 01:00:32]

  • Responding to the new normal: How many legal databases can/should we provide?
  • Learn what steps should be taken in making the decision to select one vendor.
  • Review your usage and content to maximize the offerings in your contract.
  • What issues may you face after the decision has been made to go to one vendor?
