Nexis Uni Database Review

The only constant in life is change, but that is not always a bad thing as evidenced by the new Lexis Nexis interface update, Nexis Uni.  Nexis Uni is more than just a new coat of paint for Lexis Nexis Academic Universe. It is actually a complete remaking of the classic platform with new search functionality and a dramatically improved user experience.

The same great Lexis Nexis content is available in Nexis Uni, including news, law reviews, company information, federal and state cases, and newspaper and magazine publications. The biggest update is in the search and browsing capability. There is now a large, simple search bar  that allows the user to search all Nexis Uni content from a single interface without getting bogged down in too many options.

The Advanced Search contains all the classic tools for power users, as well as useful command hints and frequently asked questions. It is easier than ever to locate exactly the information you need when you need it.

The “Let us help you find it…” tool gives you more flexibility in your browsing up front, allowing you to select topics, date ranges, and formats to browse. All in all, Nexis Uni is a major update to a classic search tool. It is available now on the library’s Databases page.
