New RBsource and RBsourceFilings enhancement: Download entire acts and regulations in one step

A new download feature on RBsource and RBsourceFilings lets you create a single document from a large section of a law, rule, or regulation. You can then upload the document to an IPad, Kindle or other mobile device to view offline at your convenience. To further boost productivity, multiple documents are processed in the background, and a link is sent via e-mail when the download is ready—allowing you to continue researching while large files are processed.

To see the new feature in action, go to the www.rbsourcefilings.com Home Page and select Statutes or Rules and Regulations.
