All interested librarians are invited to participate in the annual LEXIS-WESTLAW
Vendor Roundtable on Monday July 16 from 5:15-6:15. Less time scheduled this
year necessitated a change in format. There will be no extended presentations
by LEXIS & WESTLAW personnel.
We will begin with a brief look at key issues raised by librarians in the LEXIS-WESTLAW
use surveys done by Nancy McMurrer of the University of Washington. Approximately
half of the program will be devoted to discussion among the librarians of issues
related to administration of LEXIS & WESTLAW in the law schools, such as
training, equipment support, printing, and support by academic and student representatives.
Then Timothy List of Lexis Law Publishing and Gerald Johnson of West Group will
join us for a Q & A. session. Timothy List is the Vice-President, Law School
and Federal Courts Markets for LEXIS Law Publishing. Gerald Johnson is the Vice-President,
Academic & Librarian Relations for West Group.
If you have any ideas for the roundtable, there is still time to make suggestions.
Please contact any of the members of the Vendor Roundtable Committee: Nancy
Gordon Russell, firstname.lastname@example.org, April
or Rosalie Sanderson, email@example.com.
