Scott Nelson, head of print at Thomson Reuters, began a presentation on eBooks at the 107th annual American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) conference asking the audience if they used the phone book to find a repair service, referred to the newspaper for the movie directory or unfolded a map to get directions.

With technology advances, a majority of the paper-based resources people have relied upon are now all accessible through mobile devices. And as digital readers have become more commonplace in homes for recreational publications and the consumption of news, the audience noted by an informal poll that ereaders have yet to be fully embraced into the workplace.

More than an ereader, Thomson Reuters ProView is a platform specifically built for professional use with advanced features such as full-text search, secured notes and highlights, and content updating, as well as providing integration to materials on WestlawNext. ProView, which currently offers more than 650 titles and more than 350 titles coming soon, was developed to integrate the multiple reference resources from Thomson Reuters enabling easy access through a digital format in the professional environment.
