Challenge: Keeping informed on changes and additions to the LexisNexis® products and services.
Solution: Coffee Break Webinars and Meetings
Coffee Breaks are quick 20 minute presentations to help refine research skills. These Webinars concentrate on practice areas, jurisdictions, or tasks. The Coffee Breaks are not specifically geared towards information professionals, however, many librarians have provided positive feedback on the sessions. Also, encourage your attorneys and paralegals to take advantage of this quick and powerful tool.
Just for information professionals LRCs provide information and demonstrations on products and services. To make sure that you gain the most benefit from new content and enhancements we provide one-on-one update sessions and larger presentation-style seminars. Check out our Upcoming Events page for sessions near you.
