Sunday, January 1, 2006 - 00:00

Thomson West recently announced that statutory citations on NetScan will now link directly into Westlaw, providing government affairs professionals with powerful new tools for in-depth research of legislative and regulatory information.

Linking from NetScan's legislative text to statutes on Westlaw provides legal and government affairs professionals insights that expand their knowledge of current and pending legislative and regulatory actions. Users can click on the statute link while using NetScan and they are automatically directed to the respective documents on Westlaw. The integration of the services also enables customers to leverage many of the features on Westlaw, including StatutesPlus, Keycite and Legislative History.

"We know that government affairsprofessionals work with tight time lines, often multi-tasking several high-priority projects at one time," said Tim Wahlberg, vice president of the Corporate Segment for Thomson West. "By linking NetScan and Westlaw together, we've created a unique resource that allows researchers faster access to the most authoritative resources available."
