New LexisNexis Product Compiles Business Resources

By Chelsey Levingston, Dayton Daily News, Ohio

Jun. 25--MIAMI TWP., Montgomery County-- LexisNexis announced its new product Library Express, its first product for public libraries, Tuesday June 24.

Library Express will be available to the public Monday June 30 and will allow businesses to track competitors, industry announcements and themselves through its compilation of news, business and legal sources, said LexisNexis spokeswoman Marina Azariah. "If you're a larger company, sometimes there's news about you that you didn't know," said Azariah.

Library Express features national and international news sources that date back to the 1970s depending on the paper. Business sources include company files and SEC filings and can be searched by ticker number and location. Legal sources can be searched by case number, judge and date range.

"This is particularly helpful for people looking for jobs because they can research the company they're interested in," said Azariah.

Sources can be searched by "easy search" in natural language, like how searches are conducted on Google or Yahoo or by "advanced search" with specific times and dates.

LexisNexis developed Library Express by focus groups, demos and feedback with libraries over a year and a half time period.
