The nation's leading guide to the purchase of legal information in all formats, the Legal Information Buyer's Guide & Reference Manual is the recipient of the American Association of Law Libraries' highest award for legal bibliography. It was also cited by Legal Information Alert (September 2004) as one of the top 20 innovations in the field of legal information in the past ten years. This annual 720-page, soft cover compendium provides detailed information about thousands of print, CD-ROM, and online legal information products, accompanied by critical cost-saving advice and strategies. Unlike standard bibliographies, it provides complete cost and supplementation cost information to help customers avoid financial pitfalls, including a detailed spreadsheet of more than 1,400 legal specialty titles with five year's supplementation cost data. An absolutely essential tool for any lawyer, law firm, or law library buying legal information from the highly concentrated legal publishing industry. The author, a former state law librarian, is the country's leading authority on cost-effective law library acquisitions. Guaranteed to save any lawyer thousands of dollars over the course of his or her legal career. Annual editions published in May.
