Westlaw Collections

Make your library's catalog the centralized stop for anyone seeking information in Westlaw. Whether your patron is in the bricks-and-mortar library or accessing the online catalog from any other location, you want them to receive the most relevant hits possible for any query. Your users will find the hits for these electronic resources right alongside the print versions or, in some cases, in lieu of them. Why not promote your library's electronic resources with Westlaw by adding high-quality MARC21 records to your catalog?

What makes our records "high-quality"? Our records are created in partnership with Westlaw and feature deep-linking; meaning a click of our URL takes your researchers directly to the content after a login/password...NOT to another search screen. All Cassidy records are created by humans with MLS degrees and decades of experience - NOT machines - and are given specific Library of Congress subject headings and notes packed with all the relevant information. After all, the real value of a catalog record is for its information.

Our Westlaw E-Treatises and Law Journals were both winners of the AALL Best New Product Award in 2008.

As with all Cassidy Cataloguing record sets, records are fully customizable and as long as the customization spans all records in the set, there is never an extra charge! Sample records for any and all record sets are always available free and with no obligation to buy.
