“Vincent has saved the library staff at our law library hours of research when searching for “something like this” or the proverbial needle in a haystack. Whether library staff are helping our members research to write a factum, memorandum, an article or a book, Vincent significantly reduces our members’ research time. Research that would normally take hours now takes minutes.”
Library Manager & Executive Director, Waterloo Region Law Association
MARC files and integrations
All vLex content has been catalogued using MARC 21 standards (.mrc) which can be directly incorporated into library catalogues. MARC 21 records are available for all books, journals and magazines. A variety of integration tools are also available on vLex, including the citation management tool, Refworks, as well as COUNTER, EndNote, a Google Chrome extension, and much more.
Link directly to other sources
vLex links to over 100 other online commercial and free sources, including Westlaw and Lexis*. This means that you only need to search on vLex to search across your other case law subscriptions.
