The Law Library welcomes back returning second-year and third-year students. As you prepare for fall semester, the Law Library wants to remind you of some recent changes to LexisNexis and Westlaw.

Lexis Advance Single Sign-On

Over the summer, LexisNexis migrated to a single ID system. Now,  to access LexisNexis, you must use your Lexis Advance ID. (Your LexisNexis ID has been deactivated.) If you have already registered your Lexis Advance ID you don’t need to do anything. If you do not have or cannot remember your Lexis Advance ID, please contact our LexisNexis representative, Kendra Campbell at Kendra.Campbell@lexisnexis.com or Jacquelyn McCloud, Head of Electronic Resources and Computer Services, at jackie-mccloud@uiowa.edu.

Lexis Advance is now the starting platform for your research. You can still access classic LexisNexis from within Lexis Advance. To access classic LexisNexis from the Lexis Advance home page, hover over the red Research tab located on the top left. In the menu options, select the link to lexis.com.

The transition from classic LexisNexis to Lexis Advance has also brought other changes. Classic LexisNexis is not user specific. Your search history, user preferences, and alerts are no longer available in classic LexisNexis. If you had alerts set up on classic LexisNexis, you need to reset these alerts on Lexis Advance. In addition, you will no longer be able to print to a free LexisNexis printer from classic LexisNexis, but you can still print to an attached printer. Free printing is available to the Lexis printer from Lexis Advance. Check back for information about upcoming training opportunities or contact our LexisNexis representative, Kendra Campbell at Kendra.Campbell@lexisnexis.com.

Free Westlaw Printing No Longer Available

The Westlaw printers have been removed and free printing is no longer available. However, you may still print from Westlaw Classic and WestlawNext to an attached printer using the same printing icons on your screen. It’s easy to add notes, highlight, and organize your research into folders on WestlawNext. Unfamiliar with these features? Contact our Westlaw Academic Account Manager AJ Krause, aj.krause@thomsonreuters.com for information about upcoming training opportunities.
