Strategic partnerships with LexisNexis, Springshare and NELLCO kick start Boopsie’s expansion into the academic and corporate legal market
Sunnyvale, CA – January 27, 2015 – Boopsie, Inc., the leading mobile platform-as-a-service provider for libraries worldwide, continues to expand its footprint in the legal industry with the addition of two new customers and a partnership with NELLCO, a leading consortium of law libraries. The University of Colorado School of Law and the University of Georgia School of Law–both NELLCO members–join Boopsie’s growing roster of law libraries, law firms and law schools working with Boopsie to extend library services through mobile apps.
Boopsie’s partnerships with the industry’s top legal content providers ensures a seamless user experience, connecting users with the highest quality resources on a user-friendly interface. LexisNexis and Springshare have recently partnered with Boopsie, joining ProQuest, EBSCO and other aggregators and publishers that offer authoritative legal content to libraries around the globe.
“A recent survey by the American Association of Law Libraries found that up to 41% of recent law school graduates have a poor or unacceptable understanding of how to complete research tasks that are relevant to their work,” says Tony Medrano, Boopsie’s CEO and a Stanford Law School alum. “Recognizing the trend towards mobile access to information, and the importance of attorney and researcher efficiency we aim to lower this number by combining our innovative technology with the highest quality legal content to provide librarians with an easy-to-use mobile platform that puts legal answers in the hands of students before they leave the classroom and long before doing legal work for clients.”
Boopsie’s library-branded mobile app platform seamlessly connects researchers to ProQuest eLibrary and LexisNexis Digital Library, among other products and services that the libraries subscribe to or own. By streamlining access to legal databases like Congressional Universe, EBSCO Legal Collection, Law.com and more, Boopsie’s mobile apps meet law professionals at their point of need.
“Today’s legal researchers use their mobile devices, such as smart phones or tablets, every day for work,” said Tracy Thompson, Executive Director at NELLCO. “They want information delivered in an easy-to-use, familiar way. App usage is increasing every year, and we wanted to be ahead of the curve to offer our member law libraries the opportunity to work with Boopsie, a company that has both the expertise and experience to support our members and deliver top notch service.”
Libraries can contact Boopsie for more information about how easy it is to provide a best-of-class library-branded app to their users. Boopsie’s team has experienced legal researchers on staff, including the head of the business development team, Megan Vizzini, who also holds a JD. Boopsie will also be at the NELLCO Annual Symposium in March, and the American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) Conference in July.
