What is a Portable Search Widget?

Portable Search Widgets allow you to put a live LexisNexis Academic search box on your own website. Simply copy and paste a small box of HTML, and turn your site into a direct portal to LexisNexis Academic. As long as your customers are already authenticated remotely through your library portal, or are on campus, the search widget will retrieve the same LexisNexis Academic results you would find on the full product.

Search The News Widget

The LNA Search the News Widget

The image to the right shows the new Search the News portable search widget. The widget is equipped for a terms & connectors search of LexisNexis Academic's "All News, English" file.

Some important tips:

  • Use segment terms like HLEAD() and DATE() for a more accurate search.
  • If your search returns over 3000 results, press the "Edit Search" link in the right corner to use the full product's guided search boxes to narrow your results.
  • Use the PUBLICATION() segment if you want to search a specific newspaper.

The image to the right shows the new Search Legal Cases portable search widget. The widget is equipped for a terms & connectors search of LexisNexis Academic's legal group files including:

  • Federal & State Cases, Combined
  • US Supreme Court Briefs



Some important tips for using this widget:

  • Use segment terms, like CITE() for citations and NAME() for party name, to search specific fields. For example, when searching for Roe v. Wade, search NAME(Roe) AND NAME(Wade)
  • If your search returns over 3000 results or zero results, press the "Edit Search" link in the right corner to use the full product's guided search boxes.
  • Use the search box as-is for a full text search of all cases.
