Well, the wait is over. Just in case you haven’t been watching, Maritime Law Book is now Compass and Compass introduced vLex Canada. There are some interesting and useful delighters with vLex Canada Open.
Delighter #1 – No barriers to entry
It is easy to sign up with no cost via two clicks by selecting your Google or Facebook credentials. Some content, like the ability to search using the MLB topic number, is available for paid subscriptions only. This makes sense. It highlights that there is value to adding information.
Delighter #2 – Look and feel
A clean screen with obvious search functionality which recognizes that searching and browsing are different activities. The service appears easy to use and indeed, I found what I was expecting to find.
Delighter #3 – Functionality
Folders, favorites, filtering, annotations, advanced searching, clear source lists, retained history. Really, I can’t think of anything that is missing – and all of that is base functionality with no cost access.
