Migration Period

The migration period is January-July, 2010. All subscribers should now be using the new URL listed below.

What Happens to the URLs?

Asia Pacific Users will need to update their URLs

Users in Asia will have to manually change their URL to one of the following:

    Asia, Except China: 
    http://www.lexisnexis.com/ap/academic 
    China:
    http://origin-www.lexisnexis.com/ap/academic

Test Your Access

Please note that the landing page for the new interface is on the open web. You should run a search to test your access.

The New URL Will Continue To Work

The new URL will continue to work after the migration period ends. Customers who have made the switch to the new URL will not have to do anything else.


Test Your Remote Authentication

All subscribers should test remote authentication to the new interface. See the sections below on Proxy Server procedures. Note: The home page of the interface is on the open web. To test authentication you must run a search in the new interface.
