Searching in LexisNexis

LexisNexis is a great tool for you to use to find news articles from around the globe that will help you with your research, but it is not always the most intuitive to search. Use these tips to find exactly what you're looking for:

LexisNexis covers a wide range of topics from news, legal cases, and company information. Selected the box titled: "Search the News"

It should expand out when clicked to offer more search options.

Search for your specific news item here. You can also put in a specific source type if you know that you only want results from a specific publication. However, when doing a general search leave it on "Major World Publications" to get a sense of the scope.

After you have retried results in your search you will be able to filter results by publication, date, language and to search within the results.
