BNA Services Get a Facelift

Although it’s hard to tell from the entry page, the Bureau of National Affairs online publications underwent a redesign earlier this week. BNA is a major publisher of services (also known as “looseleaf services” in their print incarnations), such as the United States Law Week and the Criminal Law Reporter. These services provide practitioners and scholars with information about the latest developments in a particular area of law, through case summaries and expert analyses. The redesign improves the general look and feel of the publications, in addition to providing more personalization options for repeat visitors.

To view the new and improved version of your favorite BNA publications, choose a title from the list. Some titles (such as the ABA/BNA Lawyers’ Manual on Professional Responsibility) automatically launch the redesigned version; others offer a link in red text to “Preview Our New Platform”. If you would like to offer your feedback about the new design, BNA is conducting a survey during the beta testing period.

You may not be aware that you can also receive updates by e-mail of your favorite BNA publications. View the brief slideshow below for the steps.
