New Lexis Nexis Search Interface

February 19, 2010 – 11:11 AM

If you’ve used the GALILEO database Lexis Nexis lately, you may have noticed the new default search interface, which debuted on Tuesday.  The “easy search” page lets you choose to search news, legal cases, company information, and do country or person searches – or combine multiple searches. (Click image to enlarge.)

Most Lexis Nexis users are interested in news.  This interface makes it easier to search for or within a specific news publication, like the New York Times or The Guardian (UK).  The “easy search” doesn’t feature the ability to limit your news search by date.  To do a date limit, click the “All News” search link, and the traditional Lexis Nexis choices for limiting the date range are again available.  You can also easily limit to types of news information, including editorials or book reviews.
