What's Changing and What's Staying

As announced last week, the newly redesigned LexisNexis Academic interface will launch December 23rd.

Over the next few weeks, we will be unveiling more details about Academic’s new look including screenshots, research guides, and new YouTube videos to prepare you for the launch.

While users will see a simpler, more intuitive search interface, Academic’s robust content, features and functionality will remain unchanged, including:

  • Post-search experience–Users will continue to have access to all of Academic’s search results clustering and enhancements like links to Bibliographic Export, Delivery to Cloud, and Document Permalinking
  • Hot Topics Links and Landmark Cases–These easy, one-click searches will be a mainstay for students to access top-trending content
  • Academic access to news, legal, and business sources including Company, Industry, and Executive Dossier–All content sources will remain the same and users will still have access to a growing list of over 15,000 sources of credible information
  • URLs and Search Form Permalinks –Academic will still be available at the same URL (http://www.lexisnexis.com/hottopics/lnacademic) so no need to change your user guides, permanent links to search forms, or title-level links on your library portal

The new LexisNexis Academic interface was developed and implemented with feedback and suggestions we received from college and university librarians, educators and students across the country.

Academic users will find the new interface has been redesigned to provide:

  • A single-search box experience
  • Streamlined navigation for more intuitive, user-friendly research
  • Improved advanced search options for more sophisticated queries
  • Easier access to support resources including the Academic Knowledge Center, YouTube video tutorials, A-Z Source List, and User Guides

Screenshots of the new interface will be posted next week, so stay tuned!

October 25th Update

Over the past year, we surveyed librarians, other teaching faculty, and students on ways we could improve LexisNexis Academic. We received a lot of insightful comments about enhancements we could make, and we are happy to announce a number of changes coming over Winter Break:

  • A simple, streamlined design
  • A more intuitive place to start your research
  • One-step search capability
  • Improved options for advanced queries

Academic will have a new look while maintaining the same great content and robust functionality – all at the same address: http://www.lexisnexis.com/hottopics/lnacademic.

To help you prepare for the launch on December 23rd, all of our user guides, Knowledge Center articles, and YouTube videos will be modified to reflect the new design. We are creating content-specific research guides, as well as task-based, step-by-step user guides that will cover all bases, including screen shots of the new interface that you can use.

We can’t wait to show you this amazing new version of LexisNexis Academic! Stay tuned for more information.
