AALL gets first look at new eReader application: Thomson Reuters ProView
On Saturday night, right after the exhibit hall ribbon cutting kicked off this year’s AALL conference, we had a kickoff of our own, as Dan Bennett, senior director, Mobile Technology Strategy, showed the new Thomson Reuters ProView eReader application. As attendees looked on, Bennett ran the new app through its paces, showing how it allows researchers to view, annotate and search texts anywhere, anytime.
Thomson Reuters ProView is the first professional-grade eReader software application, with advanced features such as Boolean full-text search based on the familiar Westlaw search, links to WestlawNext content and automatic content updating.
Thomson Reuters is showing ProView at AALL to get feedback and input from the librarian community. Thomson Reuters ProView will be a free downloadable software application for the iPad and web browsers. It will be available first through our Carswell business in Canada next month, and available to U.S. customers later this year.
