Proposed redesign for LexisNexis Easy Search form
Use this tool to open the SmartIndexing Term Lookup Tool to help you locate and index terms to your search. For more information on using index terms to improve your search results, see the article on SmartIndexing.
The Power Search form offers three different methods for choosing a source. Select a group source such as "Major World Publications" or "All News" to conduct a broad search. Type in the title of a specific publication to search it (note this option is limited to newspaper and periodical titles). Or use the links provided to open the source directory and choose from among all of the thousands of sources available in LexisNexis Academic. For more information on choosing sources, see the article on the Academic Source Directory.
The section search tool displays the "sections" or fields that are available in the LexisNexis source you have selected. Use the tool to construct a fielded search. Limiting your search to a specific field can greatly improve your results. For more information, see the article on Academic Document Sections
