LexisNexis Launches LexisNexis Legal Content Insider
New Site Aggregates Marketplace and News, Info and Multi-Media Content on
Legal eBooks, eLending Technology and Print
July 14, 2014 — NEW YORK – LexisNexis® Legal & Professional, a leading provider of content and technology solutions, today launched a new online news & information resource offering access to materials and tools on legal eBooks, digital library technology and print titles.
Called LexisNexis® Legal Content Insider
, the new resource was unveiled at the American Association of Law Libraries
(AALL) annual meeting
in San Antonio, Texas. The site provides legal professionals a one-stop destination to stay connected and up-to-date on the evolving landscape of legal publications. Built on the LexisNexis® LexTalk
platform, the site is also connected to a network of community forums where legal professionals such as law librarians can connect with one another on issues of the day.
“There is a lot of information in the market about legal eBooks and print titles, as well as digital library technology, but this information is typically hard to find and time-consuming to research, access and use,” said Scott Meiser, senior director, Research Information – eBooks & Digital Library at LexisNexis. “LexisNexis Legal Content Insider gathers this valuable information – from LexisNexis and the market – to make it easier to understand key trends and emerging issues in this important area.”
The site features recent news, in-depth written and video pieces, links to influential blogs, and legal news feeds from Law360® and LexisNexis® Mealey’s®, as well as connection to the full LexTalk network of forums for legal professionals. Users can register and learn industry opinions via surveys, and there are links to community sites for further conversation. The site also features “spotlight” areas where news, info, links and other content is available on specific practice areas. At launch, LexisNexis Legal Content Insider includes spotlights on IP law and Banking Compliance. In the future, the site will also include other content, such as guest posts and commentaries, white papers and more.
The site is the latest example of the LexisNexis strategy to enable customers to “go beyond the book” by offering innovative technologies to help them better use legal publications, as well as providing resources to assist them in managing their collections.
Last month, LexisNexis announced an agreement with Courtroom Connect to offer video and audio content within law school eBooks, launched an innovative role playing game within select law school eBooks, and announced that eBooks from the American Bar Association will be offered within the LexisNexis® Digital Library e-lending solution. Created in conjunction with OverDrive and launched in 2012, LexisNexis® Digital Library offers access to and management of legal eBooks from the most popular mobile devices and computers.
