Reminder: Lexis eBook Follow-Up Questions Due to CRIV by Jan. 4
Later this month, CRIV will be conducting a conference call with LexisNexis representatives concerning the Company's plans to replace CDs with eBooks as companions to their pBooks. Details and contact info on the CRIV Blog. For a little background, see Becoming Mini Me to Doctor Evil (Nov. 28, 2012) and Lexis to Migrate pBooks with Companion CDs to pBooks with Companion eBooks "Over the Next 18 Months" (Dec. 17, 2012) on LLB.
Based on the number and specificity of questions law librarians are or intend to submit to CRIV, this could be one very long conference call. My hunch is there will be some questions, LN representatives may not be prepared to answer immediately, even if they are all submitted in advance of the conference call. However, I hope CRIV submits all the questions to the Company for a final follow-up to this forthcoming follow-up. And hopefully, Lexis will provide detailed responses to all questions unlike the sort of responses we typically receive from the folks in the Land of 10,000 Invoices.
Let's not receive the sort of responses which tend to remind many law librarians of Coneheads trying to live amongst the Blunt Skulls until they are rescued. [JH]
