New LexisNexis interface

The database LexisNexis changed its searching interface on December 23.

LexisNexis searches hundreds of full-text newspapers and also contains business and legal information, and users will find the new interface a better way to search all of this content! LexisNexis wrote wrote the following in its wiki:

“The bold red Academic Search box shown above is now the unmistakable place to start research.

“The Academic Search box defaults to a combined search of news, business, and legal content. In the current version of Academic, a large content search like this would typically return a ‘Your search has returned over 3,000 documents’ message. The new interface will automatically return the 1,000 most relevant documents that meet your search criteria.

“The expandable elements are one of our favorite things about the new interface. We’ve kept the three top widgets from our current interface, just in an expandable format. They’re there if you want them to be, and not when you don’t. ”

In addition, L-N released new Curriculum-Based Research Guides – five downloadable guides covering common legal, news, business, political science, and first-year writing assignments.
