The company that produces LexisNexis Academic has developed a new interface. The old as well as the new interface will be available until the end of the spring, 2010 semester. Both interfaces - LexisNexis Academic for the old and LexisNexis Academic: Beta for the new - will be available from the Databases A-Z list on the Rod Library home page until then.
The new interface has six search boxes on the initial page: News, Legal, Companies, Countries, People, and Combined. There are new choices on the left side of the home page. For example, clicking the Companies choice reveals options such as Company Dossier, Create a Company List, Compare Companies, Company Profiles, and SEC filings.
Give it a try before the end of the semester!
