As you may recall, Westlaw is no longer supporting the stand alone Westlaw printers found in the computer lab and in the library. These printers are no longer operational. All Westlaw print jobs will need to be sent to an attached printer should users want a hard copy of a case, statute, etc. Printing costs will be born by the user. Any cites that you have on your TWEN pages that are linked to Westlaw will incur a printing charge for the student should she/he choose to print out the cite(s).
To circumvent these printing charges Lexis, which still provides free printing, has come up with a way of linking cites on your TWEN course pages to Lexis. The information on how to do this is what is contained in the attached letter. Our Lexis rep., Tim Broms, is available to assist, should you wish to take advantage of this option.
