JUNE 15—LexisNexis, an information provider in Dayton, Ohio, is customizing its content and changing the way federal agencies can search for information from the company's databases through a Library of Congress gateway, FedLink.

The Interior Department will use LexisNexis Intranet Publisher, a platform-independent application coming out later this month. It provides agency-specific content via an intranet.

'If it's online, everyone has access to it,' said James R. Rodden, chief of information services in the Office of the Solicitor at Interior. 'There's real potential here for a lot of benefit. You can create databases that don't violate anyone's privacy.'

Rodden said he began using LexisNexis' custom interface last October. It helps the department's attorneys sort through data faster by grouping information on particular topics in separate categories, he said.
