Bicknell talks about how digitized content has been integrated into information services at the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority. Santos-Ong discusses the advantages of digital library services for the Philippine legal system which is a unique combination of civil (Roman), common (Anglo-American), Muslim (Islamic), and indigenous peoples' law. Digitization of this information has facilitated legal research and has improved library services by providing easy and accurate access to the information at the exact time it is needed.
