LexisNexis® Legal & Professional today announced Suffolk University Law School has chosen LexisNexis® Digital Library solution to transform its law library into a mobile, highly accessible and more comprehensive resource for users, as well as a more cost-efficient asset for the university.

Founded more than 100 years ago, Suffolk University Law School in Boston is the seventh-largest law school in the United States. By complementing its existing physical library with the LexisNexis Digital Library solution, the law school provides students and faculty with 'anywhere, anytime' access to more law library titles than ever before, including electronic versions of course materials at no additional charge.

“Suffolk University Law School is a recognized leader in the use of technology to prepare students for the modern practice of law,” said Andrew Perlman, dean of Suffolk University Law School and previous director of the school's legal technology & innovation program. “The Digital Library platform from LexisNexis furthers this commitment to students by enabling them not only to access and use materials faster and in more convenient ways than ever before, but also by preparing them for a practice environment that will increasingly rely on digital publications.”

Ron Wheeler, director of Law Library & Information Resources and associate professor of legal research at Suffolk University Law School, led the charge for digital change, driven by a number of factors: a 50 percent reduction in the law library's budget over a two-year period, the need to reduce the library's physical footprint, a desire to increase access to its collections, and the ambition to create a modern library experience for students and faculty.

“Technology offers the opportunity to convert libraries from static repositories into dynamic resources that increase access to content, provide cost-effective ways to expand collections, and position librarians as experts on technology as well as titles,” said Wheeler. “A solution like LexisNexis Digital Library breathes life back into the very idea of what a library can be, and helps deliver 21st century value.”

To make this bold transition, Wheeler sought a platform that could host a diverse collection of eBook and electronic publication formats from different publishers, as well as a provider team willing to collaboratively create a customized solution for his library's unique needs.

“It has been rewarding to work with Ron and the team at Suffolk University Law School to help them build a state-of-the-art digital law library,” said Susan Slisz, vice president, Print & Digital Solutions at LexisNexis. “Their implementation of LexisNexis Digital Library is a great example of how a customizable, format-agnostic approach to e-lending can dramatically open up access, reduce costs, and help students get the materials they need to be successful in their studies.”

Through the implementation of Digital Library, Suffolk Law Library increased the number of volumes available, while simultaneously meeting budget challenges by purchasing fewer hard copy books and consolidating the library's physical footprint from three floors to two.

“Not only is it great to have electronic and traditional book options to accommodate different styles of students and faculty, but there are practical benefits to eBooks and digital publications,” said Sharmila Murthy, professor of law at Suffolk University Law School. “For example, students or faculty who forget a hard copy book on campus or are cut off from campus because of a snow storm can easily get the same title online helping them continue studying or preparing for a class.”

Notably, the Suffolk law librarians are now well-versed in lending technology and less encumbered with managing a large physical collection, giving them more time to engage students and answer practical questions.
