Court News Ohio has announced that the Ohio Supreme Court has purchased the Lexis Digital Library of ebooks. A browsable and searchable list of what the Supreme Court is purchasing can be found at this link. According to the Supreme Court:
"The LexisNexis Digital Library is a virtual library website that provides legal books in an e-book format.
The digital library allows Supreme Court employees to access the library’s complete Lexis collection from any location and from any type of electronic device such as tablets, smartphones, and laptops. All other patrons can access the complete collection from any computer inside the Supreme Court library.
Patrons can download the e-books for free, which include the legal volumes Page’s Ohio Revised Code, The Law of Professional Conduct in Ohio, Ohio Civil Practice with Forms, and Corbin on Contracts. Once checked out, Internet access is not required to read the e-book."
The Cleveland Law Library is also in the process of purchasing an Ohio collection of books from the Lexis Digital Library for our patrons. We hope to have this collection available by 1st quarter 2015. When we do, we will make a big announcement on this blog and though email communications to members.
