Abstract
Traces the early developments, in 1967, that were to form the foundation of today's LEXIS-NEXIS services. Originally built on a text retrieval system designed for the US Air Force by the Ohio based Data Corporation, LEXIS-NEXIS began life as a text retrieval system for private use by the Ohio State Bas Association. Describes the subsequent acquisition by Mead Corp., its launch as a commercial online service and its later purchase by Reed Elsevier. Outlines the changes and acquisitions that have taken place over 30 years that have led to LEXIS-NEXIS becoming the world's largest onlien host. Describes the current activities of the service, in particular its activities in Europe following the formation of LEXIS-NEXIS EUROPE Ltd., and work done to adapt the service to the Internet. Notes some of the competitors to LEXIS-NEXIS: Dialog; Data-Star; FT Profile and MAID
