Re: LexisNexis or Westlaw Campus Research Rentz, Paivi H 10 Aug 2007 15:31 UTC

My main issue with Westlaw Campus Research is that our AtoZ provider has
been unable to get coverage data from Thomson West. After Ebsco reported
that they did not receive any response from Thomson West, I have tried
multiple times to get a list. I get a response that my request is being
forwarded to another person... and then nothing. This has happened 3-4
times now.  If it is important for you to have these titles listed in
your AtoZ list, I would ask for the coverage data before you commit.
Otherwise it is a good product and more user friendly than LexisNexis.

My college is trying to decide which to purchase *- LexisNexis Academic
or Westlaw Campus Research. Anyone using Westlaw Campus Research, please
let me know how you like it. We're a community college and we don't want
to purchase anything that will be too far over our students heads.
