Lexis Nexis Starts Library Express For Public & State Libraries

At the end of last month Lexis Nexis started Library Express, a brand new product designed to help customers of public and state libraries with their business, legal and news research

Library Express provides access to more than 6,000 news, business, and legal sources. News and business coverage encompasses newspapers, periodicals, television and radio broadcasts, newswires, blogs, corporate directories, and financial information. It features national and international news sources that date back to the 1970s, depending on the paper. Business sources include financial information, market research, industry reports, and SEC filings. Legal content includes case law, statutes, codes, regulations, patents, and law school directories.

The news sources include full-text of more than 350 newspapers US and international newspapers, more than 300 magazines and journals, over 600 newsletters, broadcast transcripts from the major television and radio networks and wire services, updated daily from Associated Press, Business Wire and PR Newswire.

Some of resources incorporated in the business file are Standard & Poor's Corporate Descriptions, Hoover's Company Reports, Disclosure Reports, International company and stock reports, and SEC filings and reports like SEC 10-Q Reports, SEC 10-K Reports, SEC 8-K Reports, SEC 20-F Reports, SEC Annual Reports to Shareholders.

Legal sources are also very well presented with U.S. Supreme Court decisions from January 1790 to present (searchable by majority opinion, minority opinion, concurring opinion, counsel, or headnotes) ; U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decisions;
U.S. District Court decisions from 1789 to present; decisions from Bankruptcy Courts; U.S. Court of International Trade; Tax Courts; Courts of Customs and Patent Appeals and Veterans, Commerce, and Military Courts.

This looks like a very thorough and interesting reference database, the question is whether public libraries will be able to afford it.
