The FCCJ has begun offering members a substantial discount on subscriptions to LexisNexis' news database service, Nexis.com, and already a number of members have signed up for the comprehensive news and information database.
Nexis provides access to news and information from more than 34,000 sources, including Kyodo News, Jiji, Yonhap, Xinhua, AP, Reuters, AFP, all major world newspapers and specialist news sources. Also included is a database of U.S. and international company information, biographical databases, country profiles and a U.S. legal database.
The members-only deal allows for flat-rate access at 7,900 yen per month - offering big savings on a service that normally costs 126,000 yen per month.
To assist new users to the database and for those with an interest in learning more before subscribing, LexisNexis staff will hold training sessions at the Club on Wednesday, February 26. There will be two sessions so that members can learn both in English and Japanese. The first training session starts at 3pm and will be held in English. The second will start at 4pm and will be in Japanese. To help the staff with preparations, please call reception (3211-3161) in advance and let them know if you are planning to attend.
