New Pathway To Access Lexis.com & Other Changes

I want to highlight the new procedure for the BLS community to access Lexis.com. At the top of your Lexis Advance screen, there is a pull-down arrow in the red tab: Research.  One of the options in the pull-down menu is: lexis.com.
At this point, a message might pop up–in the message, you might need to click: “Continue” to reach the Lexis.com main screen. In Lexis.com, tab: Legal still contains the menu of legal sources.

Also, according to Lexis, if you are a BLS subscriber using Lexis.com (as opposed to Lexis Advance):

  • Your history is not saved
  • Your tabs might not be there the next time you log on to Lexis.com because you are sharing a “party line password” with others
  • BLS students cannot print documents from Lexis.com through the dedicated Lexis printers in the library.  (BLS students CAN print documents from Lexis Advance through the dedicated Lexis printers.)

Note: Lexis could not tell me when the foreign law sources that are only available in Lexis.com will migrate to Lexis Advance.
