New Interface for LexisNexis Academic and New LexisNexis Statistical Insight

LexisNexis ( revealed a significant update to the LexisNexis Academic service. The enhanced interface now provides simpler and faster access to content. Updates include transformation of the Easy Search form to a widget-based interface, simplified navigation, and the addition of several new forms for specific subject areas including news, business, and legal. Following favorable reaction to beta testing by a large number of subscribing institutions during the fall academic semester, the enhanced LexisNexis Academic is now available to all users.

The completely redesigned Easy Search form is organized into six widgets that provide quick access to the most commonly used content; they help students understand at a glance the resources that are included in the database. The site navigation has been simplified so that all options are presented in a single menu on the left of the screen. Most search forms have been transformed to make them easier to use. New search forms were also added including specialized "News" search forms, simple search/browse forms for federal and state statutory law, and a "Landmark Cases" form that provides direct links to 100 topically arranged Supreme Court cases selected by LexisNexis editorial staff for their importance.

The company also unveiled LexisNexis Statistical Insight with enhanced search performance and overall user experience. LexisNexis Statistical Insight, which is designed to help researchers find the statistical information they need quickly and easily, provides access to statistics produced by federal agencies, states, business organizations, research institutions, and international organizations. The redesigned service was previously known as LexisNexis Statistical.
