As of November 28th, LexisNexis Academic is now Nexis Uni. While the coverage is the same, providing business, news, and legal information, Nexis Uni offers a more streamlined search experience. New features include more intuitive searching in addition to highly relevant filters and advanced search techniques. Search across the database or limit your results to specific content types such as news, law reviews, or company information. As well, from the home page, you can view the new “Discover Topics” section. Here, you will see curated discipline information on selected topics such as criminal justice and business. This is a great way to get started on your research or to quickly survey current information in the selected field. While you will still access most LexisNexis content from the library via OneSearch, you also have the option to create a free Lexis Uni account. With an account, you can customize the Nexis Uni homepage, save your searches, bookmark documents, and set up journal alerts. If you would like to learn more, please see Lexis Uni Help, available from the database homepage, or Contact a UI&U Librarian.
We are happy to provide you with a one-on-one tutorial or answer any questions you may have. Happy researching!
