  Westlaw - ProView - eBooks

Welcome to your Wednesday Digest. Our goal today is to inject a little excitement into your mid-week. It may sound like that is easier said than done, but thanks to the dedicated bloggers and writers in this industry, it is a job that essentially does itself. Today we are talking about ramping up what we do, putting a little extra glow on our shine, and adding even more value to our performance. Also on tap today is some big news from the world of regulatory information. So buckle up and enjoy the ride.

Bringing Sexy (Presentations) Back

Technology has really upped the ante on how we deliver presentations. It is simply getting harder and harder to keep the attention of the people in the seats, let alone really ipress them. Sharon Nelson and John Simek write, "Let's face it - whether you are talking about securing your data or describing the functions of legal IT products, the average lawyer audience may regard your presentation as useful, but hardly as 'sexy'." Luckily, these seasoned presenters have some advice to make your presentations pop. Head over to the Slaw blog and check out: Twelve Tips for Effective Tech Presentations. Are you ready to stand and deliver?

LexisNexis' Latest Acquisition

Over on my iBraryGuy blog, we are sharing some big news for regulatory practitioners and the librarians who support them. The highly popular and once self-proclaimed independent information provider MLex is lonely no more. It is joining the RELX Group family. For those who have forgotten, RELX is the new name for the parent company of LexisNexis. It's a pretty big acquisition. Let's see how this shakes out in the long run. You can read my initial thoughts and access the full, official press release in: Ex-citing News - MLex joins RELX Group.
