WestlawNext concerns continue
As an academic law library, Barco is somewhat insulated from the ongoing pricing skirmishes between law firm libraries and the big legal database providers. But apparently there is a lot of concern out there about pricing for the new WestlawNext, regarding which ThomsonReuters hasn't been terribly forthcoming. Joe Hodnicki over at the Law Librarian Blog has written a detailed and blistering post about the WestlawNext pricing structure, which he describes as "psychedelic". He also includes a link to Greg Lambert's blogpost at "3 Geeks & a Law Blog" that is titled WestlawNext Pricing - Up to $3400 Per Hour!!
