The big news this week is that Westlaw rolled out its new legal research platform on Monday - called WestlawNext - that is supposed to provide users with a more "Google-like" search experience. I haven't yet had a chance to give it a test drive but plenty of others have and we've got the links with the skinny below.
But first a promo video from West (which was also shown in Times Square yesterday):
Our good buddies at the Law Librarian blog have done a lot of the leg work for us by collecting several links that feature WestlawNext field tests and other commentary such as this one: "WestlawNext and the future of legal research instruction." There's also this from West's parent corp. - the Thomson Reuters blog - that collects reports from around the Blogosphere. And there's even more field reports here at law.com.
We'll keep on top of this story.
In the meantime, i am the scholarship dude.
