Dear Boalt Express Customers:
We regret to inform you that the Boalt Express service will close permanently on Friday, September 18. In the 24 years since BEX opened, the document delivery business has changed tremendously, due to competition from commercial services and the ability of customers to obtain documents from the web for free or by paying per document through publishers. As a result of these changes, there is no longer sufficient business to cover the cost of providing BEX services. Consequently, the Berkeley Law Library determined that BEX is no longer viable. Any orders submitted prior to noon on Friday, September 18 will be filled to the best of our ability by 4:00 PM. Final invoices will be sent out in the weeks after the closure.
We thank you for your support over the past twenty-four years. We have enjoyed working with you and hope the services we provided were useful. The Berkeley Law Library still remains open to the public for reference service and access to materials.
