The LexisNexis Academic research database has a new look for the new year. LexisNexis is one of our best databases for finding current news from a variety of sources, information about legal cases and decisions, and basic business directory information. They’ve simplified their interface with a single search box to search all of their content. Use the ‘Search by Content Type’ to search in the major areas (News, Legal, Companies) and use the ‘Advanced Options’ below the search box to see further refinements based on the section that you are searching in. Additional help is available from the pop-out menu on the left side of the screen.
As always, results in LexisNexis Academic are full text of articles or transcripts, and can be exported to your e-mail. For additional assistance in searching LexisNexis Academic or any of our research databases, contact our reference librarians.
