    July 20, 2011 – State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE Books UnBound has added a host of new tools and features that makes research even more productive.

    “We added new tools and features based on user requests,” says PINNACLE Director Bill Connors. “You will enter a whole new era of legal research when you access your trusted online library of resource books on Wisconsin law and Wisconsin and federal procedure. You’ll save time with links to case law and statutes directly from the digital text through Fastcase™. The power of Google search now takes you directly to the content you need to answer your legal questions.”

    With these new tools and features you can customize your research experience:

    “I use Books Unbound more frequently than I thought I would, and the set-up is fantastic. Easy to read, easy to move around, and so much handier than traditional books.”
