New scholarship: "Does WestlawNext Really Change Everything: The Implications of WestlawNext on Legal Research"
Thanks to Joe Hodnicki at the Law Librarian blog for alerting me to this article by Professor Ronald E. Wheeler, Jr. It's available on SSSRN here and soon to be published in 103 Law Library Journal _ (2011). Below is the brief abstract and following that is a link to an extensive review from the LLB.
First, the abstract:
WestlawNext, Thomson Reuters’ newest electronic research service, has been around for over a year now. Ron Wheeler shares his thoughts on how this service may impact various aspects of legal research, and he suggests further study and research are necessary to fully evaluate and comprehend the system.
Here's the link to the LLB commentary.
