Isn’t it convenient when real life illustrates a topic?

I doubt that it’s news to the Canadians in the audience, but for our American cousins,  Canada Law Book announced that it intends to remove its content from LexisNexis Quicklaw with the expiry of its license agreement on March 31, 2008, with the aim of expanding its own suite of online offerings. The implications of this decision are unclear at this moment – by next spring, we’ll have a better sense of what this means for libraries.

The announcement serves to highlight the timeliness of the Friday morning plenary, Pipe Dream to Pipeline : The Future of Legal Information and Law Publishing.  For me, this session has gone from a “nice to have” to one of the most important items on the program. Does the Canada Law Book announcement presage a fundamental shift in the marketplace, or is it a one-off? The legal marketplace seems to segmenting into mega-firms and boutiques – are we seeing the same model emerge in publishing? 

 Join our panel of legal publishing insiders as we explore their opportunities and challenges. (I’ve been privately speculating about the future of the case law report, with the rise of the “LII” – Legal Information Institute).

Hein Goes Solid Gold

We are just tickled pink that William S. Hein, publishers of HeinOnline, have bumped up their sponsorship for our conference to the Gold level. They have been supportive of this meeting when we announced it over three years ago, so we are delighted they are making such a solid commitment. We will be moving them up on the sponsorship list very soon.

Thank you, Shannon et al!   We appreciate your support.

Cheers,
Connie Crosby
