I've been subscribing to the Virtual Chase for several years and thought
it was about time I told you how great and useful I think it is. I am a
business librarian for a state government agency, not a law librarian. I
want to keep up on law librarianship, copyright, and other current
subjects. I find TVC to be of enormous value in keeping myself current.
The annotations are great. I read every issue and route them all to my
staff. I often find information I need to retain permanently. Thank you
for a very useful and valuable service.

informative, timely and the best in this area.

Coverage is great and there

presentation. And it was obvious the audience

What an excellent resource for both legal information and
Internet search tips! I'm finding it invaluable as I gather
resources for our new paralegal and criminal
~Michelle Bing, Miller-Motte Technical College
I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy
TVC Alert. Like most busy lawyers who try
to keep up using the electronic sources available to us,
I invest quite a bit of (my) time looking at e-resources and a
fair amount of (client) time using them to
background facts and research law. TVC Alert
almost always has a couple of links I can use or which
lead to other resources useful to my practice as a trial lawyer.
~Colin E. Kaufman, Greenhill Partners, P.C.

take a minute to tell you how *great* this resource is!
I often find links that are very useful to us. Being a newspaper,
our subject interests are pretty eclectic.
~Tim Rozgonyi, Assistant Technology Systems Editor,
I highly value the TVC
Alert. It quickly synthesizes most of what I need to know about
technology, the information industry, our profession and the Internet
on a daily basis. I feel like I'm on top of most issues which affect
information retrieval and administration in law firms these days. It's
a monstrous task to keep up with all of it but the Alert focuses on
the most important aspects of our changing information world.
~Harriet Day, Director of Library
Services, Arnall Golden Gregory LLP
I am writing to thank
you for your amazing web site. It really keeps me current and
introduces me to high quality online resources. I have also
appreciated receiving xerox copies of excellent articles. TVC Alert is
absolutely the best -- I don't know how anyone in the information
can live without it!
