Back in 1995, Joni Cassidy wrote an article on the importance of cataloguing a law library entitled You Don't Really Own It If You Can't Find It. Many years later, many of the same advantages can be applied specifically to cataloguing electronic resources.
In this digital age, the convenience of being able to study and work outside of the library has become increasingly necessary, and users expect quality, authoritative information immediately. The best way to provide this service is to not only have all content for digital subscriptions cataloged, but to have it all cataloged uniformly and in one central location.
Today, the large law publishers' databases are available electronically and accessible through their respective websites. Taking these individual database records from each publisher and cataloging them within your catalog has multiple benefits for both the library and its patrons. Your researchers will receive numerous hits after only one search on a topic, instead of checking many different locations for the same results.
