LexisNexis Academic – New Interface & Features

LexisNexis RedesignUsers of LexisNexis (LN) Academic are in for some changes! The redesigned LexisNexis debuted in August. New features include:

  • An EasySearch Form allowing for natural language searching and the ability to search across multiple sources
  • PowerSearch form supporting full LexisNexis query language and the ability to create ad hoc combined sources
  • Ability to display results by categories, sources, subjects and additional options via the clustering feature
  • Enriched business sources including Company Dossier for a picture of a company’s structure, financial health, brands, competitors and more
  • Shepard’s Citations expanded to cover all federal and state court
  • Export citations to RefWorks

The redesign only applies to LexisNexis Academic. The other databases in the LN family, Congressional, Statistical, State Capital, etc. remain unchanged.

A tutorial overview is also available.
