Academic Source Directory
The Sources Tab in LexisNexis Academic is a very important resource if you're looking to instantly narrow your search results. You can search for specific sources or search for sources by a particular topic. This is extremly useful if you're new to research and don't know where to start.
Finding a Specific Source
The first way to find a specific source is to search for it in the "Find A Source" box. On the Browse Sources tab, the "Find a Source" box is in gray to the far right of the form. If you're searching for the "New York Times", simply type "New York Times" into the box and click the "Go" button.
The results set will then appear. As you see in the picture to the left, click on the small box next to the source (indicated by the blue arrow on the left side) and then click the red "OK-CONTINUE" button (indiciated by the blue arrow on the right side) to search within that particular source.
From there, you will go to the PowerSearch form where you can add different index terms or search within different document sections, just like normal.
