E-casebooks and e-study materials for students

Cross-posted to CS-SIS and Teknoids:

 

We recently received an email from West about e-casebooks
and Law School Exchange.  Normal marketing stuff, but it got us wondering
if law students were now starting to use these kinds of products.  Law
school techies and librarians: are your students using e-casebooks either from
publishers like West or even self-created texts?  Also, are your students
using the newer e-study guides such as the materials in Westlaw Exchange or the
Aspen Law Study Desk?  Thanks for your feedback.

E-casebooks and e-study materials for students

Deborah,
Did you in fact get much feedback on this? Many of the companies at
Educause had interesting product as well, but were only just beginning to
pop into the grad (including law) arena.

RE: E-casebooks and e-study materials for students

I didn't get a lot of feedback. There isn't very much available from
legal publishers yet, and what's available can be expensive and read
only on certain devices with certain programs. Did you see anything new
from Educause which might open up e-books for law students?
