LexisNexis Redesign!

LexisNexis just released a major redesign of its search features and interfaces. The new initial screen displays six widgets for quick access to the database’s most commonly used content, including US and international news, legal resources, and company information. These widgets also help users understand at a glance the resources that are included in the database. Veteran LN users will find the site much easier to navigate, with search options visible and clear. The news, federal statutory law, and state statutory law pages also have new forms that provide guided searching, and there is now a “Landmark Cases” form that links to one hundred important Supreme Court cases, arranged by topic.
