It occurs to me that reality has finally come to Emerald City. (The here and now.) I think that Lexis and Westlaw have actually finally become the extensions of treatises. Think about it: The Great Treatises, Wright & Miller, Wigmore, Thompson on Property, etc., are no longer affordable case-finding tools. Which actually was their original purpose, by the way. The treatises themselves represent the intellectual output of the author while the supplements are dated and outrageously expensive. The user is well-served by relying on Wexis for updating, not pocket parts!
Law books aren't dead: at least for now, their supplementation is!
