There’s a lot going on with the Casemaker Web Library these days – but never fear, it is still doing the job it needs to do for members doing legal research online.

Casemaker use is growing significantly – jumping from an average of 253 page views per week in 2007, to an average of nearly 1,600 page views per week in the first three months of 2008. 

In early 2008, the improved Casemaker version 2.0 rolled out to NH Bar members, providing more streamlined access to the NH-library page, 50-state caselaw coverage, and cross-library searching capabilities.

Casemaker use by NH Bar members is growing significantly. Web usage statistics show that the initial Casemaker page was viewed an average of 253 times each week in 2007, and it has jumped to more than 1,600 times in the first three months of 2008. If you can’t wait, you also can check out the 4-page illustrated user guide published in the current issue of the Bar Journal, and also available on the Web site.

Also, Casemaker’s parent company, Lawriter LLC, was acquired in February by Collexis Holdiings, Inc., a South Carolina-based company that applies some advanced search technologies to medical research libraries. At the same time that it acquired Lawriter, Collexis (which has no connection to the Lexis-Nexis online publishing giant) also made some significant additions to the collection of caselaw documents (primarily in the federal library) available to Casemaker.

Now, Collexis is providing a version of its medical research library to lawyers in a product called Casemaker-Medical Search, on a free trial basis.

"Casemaker-Medical is an application that takes advantage of the next generation of search technology known as conceptual search," says Doyle R. Shea, Casemaker’s director of marketing. "You can retrieve the most relevant information from a repository of 18 million documents.  Use the same technology trusted by the leading researchers at such prestigious institutes as the National Institutes of Health, Johns Hopkins, the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, and Mayo Clinic."

Casemaker users are eligible for a 30-day free trial of Casemaker Medical, with discounts on access to this specific application after the trial period. There will continue to be no charge for NHBA members using the Casemaker Web Library for legal materials.

Also, be sure to read more about Casemaker’s enhancements in the latest issue of the Bar Journal, which is also posted online at http://nhbar.org/publications/display-journal-issue.asp?id=393.

Supreme Court Rule 42(9) requires all NH admitted attorneys to notify the Bar Association of any address change, home or office.
