American Law Reports – RIP for Lexis Users

Information Today – “The move by Thomson West’s Westlaw legal information service to pull its ALR content from competitor LexisNexis will not be a popular one with Lexis users—especially this Lexis user and her patrons! LexisNexis plans to offer new and upgraded services in response (see below), so the one-upmanship battle between the last legal information empires left standing grinds on. In its wake lie the customers, reeling from the never-ending cycle of having valuable information pulled out from under them again and again and again.”

I used ALR twice today. :-(

    I just re-read my comment, and realize it could be taken in a sarcastic way. What I really meant to say is, thank you for pointing this out so that we are aware of it!!

    Cheers,
    Connie
