Product Review

  • Discussed possible options and came up with three possible themes for product reviews: Major databases (like WPSA); Ebook vendors; and data products. 
  • Decided first complete a review of ebook vendor options.  Other reviews will be undertaken after this one is completed

List of Databases and Help Links

  • The committee will also create a list of links to major PS and Law databases with help links. 
  • The group will see this as an evolving project, where additional items and information will be added.  Feedback will be sought from LPSS to help the list evolve.
