Our markets

We have served a variety of organizations, including universities and non-profits, but most of our expertise and experience lies in these major industries:

“I think [LAC’s services are] working, and we’ve gotten great feedback from those that have used the service. I think it might end up saving us money in the long-run, not having a library staff and just paying for what we are using in the way of research on-demand. Our accounting person is happy because he is our purchasing person, and he was the one who used to print out books and standards and research because he owned the subscription. He’s now saving a couple hours every week.”

Kim Wickens
Knowledge Management Manager, PACCAR

"I recently learned we had people doing CI on healthcare. I asked LAC if it made sense for them to do this. Sometimes we divide responsibilities based on time; if we have a CI request that’s a short turnaround, we use LAC."

Jodie Collins
CMO, Manatt, Phelps & Phillips LLP

"If a firm isn't considering the Library as a Service model, it may be limiting its options as well as its library's future role."

George Wolf, Jr.
Former Managing Director, Herrick Feinstein LLP

"I wanted to take a moment to say thank you to you and your staff. We recently had a request that I felt was out of my realm of knowledge. We sent this request to LAC Group and you and your staff did the extra digging and contacting that was required to get the information we were seeking. I greatly appreciate LAC’s extra effort on our behalf."

Dawn Higgins Perry
Economists Incorporated

"I’ve been outspoken critic of these types of services in the past. However, I was impressed with the strategic advice and support we received throughout this process. The savings we’ve achieved as a team spoke for itself. LAC’s [spend management] division helped us achieve a great outcome."

Mark Gediman
Director of Information Services, Best Best & Krieger LLP

"Within a very tight deadline of six weeks, LAC Group and their partners thoroughly investigated all aspects of the Library’s operation and our role within the NHM. They questioned and tested all our assumptions, expanded our ideas and crucially helped us to present proposals for future development of the Library and its spaces to the Museum’s Directors. All those involved in this project and senior colleagues were impressed by the professionalism and expertise throughout the project and with the excellence of the final report. The time given by all the partners to understanding not just the Library but the whole Museum was impressive and ensured the success of the project."
