- The default Academic Search on the home page does not search all content in LexisNexis. It searches a selection of newspapers (U.S. & international), law reviews, company profiles and U.S. federal & state cases. For a more comprehensive and/or precise search, click Search by Subject or Topic (just above the Academic Search box) and select from the resulting menu of sources/categories (e.g., All News). Once a category has been selected from the menu, click Advanced Options (appearing below the search box) to refine your search by date, segment, publication, source type, etc. (e.g., All News (English)).
- When entering search terms in LexisNexis, try using an ! exclamation mark to replace endings (one or more letters, unlimited) and an * asterisk to replace one letter (or none).
