NEXIS UNI (formerly LexisNexis Academic)
When off campus, you will be required to authenticate with your last name and YSU ID#.
The LexisNexis Academic database is changing to Nexis Uni. Nexis Uni, designed with input from university students, addresses three key components requested by millennial students: personalization, collaboration and quick discovery.
With more than 15,000 news, business and legal sources, Nexis Uni helps students find credible sources including:
- Print and online journals, television and radio broadcasts, newswires and blogs
- Local, regional, national and international newspapers with deep archives
- Extensive legal sources for federal and state cases and statutes, including U.S. Supreme Court decisions since 1790
- Business information for over 80 million U.S. & international companies and over 75 million executives.
Nexis Uni offers distinctive ways for students to find the information they need:
- Responsive design across devices with unlimited search results
- Search across all content at once or a subset of targeted titles
- Results filtering identifies highly-relevant results based on location, publication type, subject, industry, geography or timeline.
- Predictive search function suggests likely sources or keywords
- Task-based search tabs allow students to quickly conduct research
- Curated discipline pages present related content to the topic, top publications and specialized search forms
Students can create an individual profile with a user ID and passwords to:
- Customize their home page to feature one of the discipline pages
- Save searches to re-run in the future
- Create Alerts on topics of interest
- Bookmark documents for later viewing
- Identify previously-viewed documents at a glance to save time.
Collaboration tools make it easier for students to work together more efficiently -- and remain individually accountable:
- Students can create and share folders for team research projects or study groups
- Document and search-string sharing in a collaborative workspace reduces source overlap on group projects
- Faculty members can set up “required reading” folders to share with class members
- Students can highlight portions of a document, add notes and save the annotated document in a folder to share with other students.
In addition to these new features, all of the critical functionality of LexisNexis Academic will be available in Nexis Uni, but may have a slightly different presentation due to improvements. Best of all, Nexis Uni allows users to search ALL LexisNexis content in a single search and has an unlimited result set.
