Lexis versus Westlaw: Goldman Sachs Wants to Know Your Professional Opinion
It’s been over two years since Stanford Law Library ran a survey on Lexis versus Westlaw and Goldman Sachs thought it would be informative to see how the results would fare two years on. (Especially given the launch of several new products by Lexis and West). Goldman Sachs is taking a survey in the same spirit as Stanford did earlier.
To gain a good sample, the investment firm encourages all librarians to take the survey so GS can gauge preferences. So do I because Goldman Sachs has much more "clout" than institutional law library buyers and their professional association. Remember, "investor relations" is what matters most to the CEOs of our major legal vendors (and their parent companies).
The survey should only take a few minutes to complete. You will find the survey at: http://gs.angel.net/gir/survey/?_id=x8b847730
When the results are compiled, Goldman Sachs promises to share its findings. If you have any questions, please contact Rakesh Patel, at Goldman Sachs International, rakesh.patel(at)gs.com. [JH]
