ProView eLibrary initiatives announced at AALL Annual Meeting
This post was written by Lise Freking, director of ProView product line strategy and marketing
The Thomson Reuters booth at the AALL Annual Meeting in Philadelphia this past week was abuzz with action as the ProView marketing and strategy team announced two new eBook solutions for law libraries: A Library Management Solution (LMS), powered by EOS; and Internet Protocol (IP) authentication access.
Thomson Reuters recently announced a partnership with EOS (SirsiDynix) to provide an integrated ProView Library Management Solution (LMS) offering. This integration will provide end users with faster, more convenient access to ProView titles through check-in/check-out means within a larger library setting – similar to how print titles are used and managed.
Under the IP authentication access model, users can sign on to the ProView browser and access eBooks via a URL link on a firm’s intranet website.
With either the LMS or IP eLibrary solution, users who create a ProView account registered to their OnePass profile can access the eLibrary using any ProView app – iPad, Android, Windows, or Mac – whether online or offline. They can then create highlights, notes, and bookmarks in the eBooks. Additionally, ProView’s “Create & Share” functionality lets users select text and create a PDF document to print or email to a colleague.
While at the AALL Annual Meeting, customers were able to see booth demonstrations of these ProView eBook features and functionality, attend Exhibitor Showcase Theater sessions, browse over 1,040 ProView eBook titles, and attend a client reception co-hosted with EOS-SirsiDynix and Thomson Reuters.
“These new ProView eLibrary solutions are exciting developments for our larger enterprise customers,” said Scott Nelson, head of Print and Advanced Media at Thomson Reuters. “The AALL Annual Meeting was the perfect opportunity for us to connect our customers with these new solutions.”
Demonstrations on the larger than life “Padzilla” (a working device) also added to the booth excitement. One customer responded after viewing the Proview
demonstrations by saying “Wow, you’ve just given me the best news this year!”
Customers were even treated to a free ProView-branded iPad case – customized to look like a U.S. Supreme Court Reporter.
Overall, the conference provided customers with the opportunity to see how ProView eBooks can make their practice more mobile, efficient and current. For more information on ProView eBook eLibraries, visit LegalSolutions.com.
