You will want to pay attention to this request from FreePint. Participants get a free copy of a VIP Report on Bloomberg Law. VIP product reviews are unmatched in the industry. I subscribe to VIP Report. It’s a great resource.
FreePint is conducting a survey of law libraries on their preferences and perspectives on major vendors and types of content. If you work in a law library, please take 10-15 minutes to complete this anonymous survey:
Provide an email address near the end of the survey (not associated with your responses) and you’ll receive a free copy of the resulting report, plus a preview copy of an upcoming VIP Report on Bloomberg Law.
Preview of interesting results to date:
* 100% of respondents report use of legal blogs in their firms; librarians are more likely to be using them than patrons (e.g., attorneys, paralegals), and librarians tend to go right to the source rather than accessing them via vendor platforms.
* Only 40% of respondents, however, use legal videos. When videos are in use, they are more likely used by the patrons than the library.
* Budget changes seem a bit more dramatic in the legal sector than in other sectors FreePint has studied recently: Only 10% report that they expect next year’s budget to remain flat (compared with 35% of respondents in other sectors), and 70% expect some decreases.
Will your responses shift the numbers? There’s only one way to find out. Complete the survey now: http://digbig.com/5bbxdj
