Digital content is in demand. Call them ebooks, digital books, or electronic files – as laptop use continues to increase at law schools – students have begun to search for digital content that is portable, searchable, and reasonably priced. VitalSource has been working with both Thomson West and Wolters Kluwer for over two years to develop these types of content solutions for law students. This lecture will explore feedback gathered from both students and faculty about digital content, the current challenges involved in delivering the content to students, and the features and benefits of the current version.
