West Group and NextPage Inc. announced a strategic alliance that will enable NextPage users to retrieve and display Westlaw content and services within the NextPage framework and associated Web-based applications. Through the West Group/NextPage alliance, researchers can retrieve documents from across their enterprise – and related content from Westlaw all in one operation. The NextPage framework provides access to a wide array of sources, such as local and remote firm document collections in Microsoft Office, PDF, Lotus Notes or other formats, as well as third party content such as publishers, partners, supplier or customers. When NextPage users access Westlaw from within this peer-to-peer architecture results will be displayed in an integrated fashion with those from their other content sources. This alliance will also allow users in the UK to access the same functionality when they use Westlaw UK from Sweet and Maxwell. www.west.thomson.com, www.nextpage.com
