LexisNexis Legal and Professional has introduced a new digital platform meant to help law professors access legal electronic books in order to prepare class materials.
The Digital Library – Professor Review Copies is built to provide professor-only access to more than 1,900 legal eBooks that can be viewed on a Web browser or on mobile devices, LexisNexis said Thursday.
Susan Slisz, vice president at LexisNexis, said law professors have started to use eBooks as a means to develop their class curriculum and the company aims to provide a platform to help search and look through legal eBook titles.
The company and eBook distributor OverDrive first introduced LexisNexis Digital Library last year with the aim of giving a virtual eBook library for students to view books of their choice on mobile gadgets.
LexisNexis also recently partnered with Follett Higher Education Group to offer law-related eBooks in Follett’s physical stores or online.
