Lexis Advance Now Available in the Law Library

Posted by Joan Bellistri on June 27, 2017

The law library now offers Lexis Advance for online legal research.  Lexis Advance is the new interface for searching Lexis.  It offers Google like functionality with a search box at the top of the page where you can enter your search terms.

You do not have to choose a database for searching.  Results will be organized by database or Lexis library.  However, you do have the option of choosing the database or jurisdiction you want to search.  The old Boolean connectors are still available, too.

The sign-in process is more involved than with the “classic” Lexis.  You will first see a page with a blue box with the words “Go to my start page.” Clicking on the blue box will bring you to the start page.  You must enter your first and last name and agree to the terms and conditions.  (This information will not be used by Lexis and does not require your contact information.)

The biggest news is the additional content that Lexis Advance brings to library users.  We now have access to all, that is just about ALL, Matthew Bender and Lexis texts and treatises.  This means there is now online access to such titles as Bender’s Forms of Discovery, Collier on Bankruptcy and Rabkin and Johnson Current Legal Forms with Tax Analysis.  For Maryland, this means online access to Turnbull’s Maryland Domestic Relations Forms, a title not available on the “old” Lexis.

Please visit the law library and give this new service a try.  We will be happy to walk you through any legal research project you bring with you.
