New York-based Primary Research Group has released a Survey of Law Library Database Licensing Practices
"The 105-page report gives
detailed data about the acquisition, licensing deployment and
management of online databases by law libraries in the United
States and Canada. The study helps its readers to answer
questions such as: How do law libraries value and
evaluate different vendors of online databases? How much
do they spend and plan to spend and on what kinds of products
do they plan to expand their collections? What do they
think of the training provided by database vendors and what
are their feelings about the rate of price increases?
How do they feel about eBooks? What are the most
valuable sources of free legal information and how have these
sources – such as Google Scholar and FindLaw –
impacted legal information use?"
Print and PDF versions are available for $135(US). Site licenses are also available.
