LexisNexis Academic is now Nexis Uni

Our access to LexisNexis Academic has been transitioned to the new Nexis Uni. This revamp features a new streamlined search and is geared to helping you find the trusted information you need much more easily.

The new search screen looks like this:

The content in Nexis Uni is similar to what was offered in LexisNexis Academic. You can search for news articles, business information, and a wealth of legal sources. Also included are many full-text journals,  covering a bevy of topics.

Another feature of Nexis Uni is an increased level of personalization. Once you create an account in Nexis Uni, you have the opportunity to customize your search screen, create alerts for new content, and can share your search information and collaborate with colleagues.

If you need more information about Nexis Uni or walkthroughs on its new features, this page can get you started.

Off-campus access to Nexis Uni requires a Library barcode and PIN. If you need help setting up your Library account or need any other help, please contact us.
