LexisNexis AU is now Lexis Advance Pacific.
On the same link and same platform Lexis Advance US Research replaces Lexis.com: The tab for "International Materials" is useful.
Terminology Change: If you are looking for secondary legal materials (journals, commentaries, encyclopaedias, dictionaries, treatises etc.) they are grouped together under the term Analytical Materials.
Advice from Lexis (24/01/2018)
"Lexis have now added an additional content sharing feature to your Lexis Advance Pacific account, so that all your domestic Australian content and international content, previously unique to Lexis.com and LexisNexis AU are together on Lexis Advance Pacific. Researchers can swap between the Pacific AND US Research experience via the switcher on the global navigation bar.
As a result you may notice the following enhancements:
- US Research and Pacific Research is now visible via the arrow and grid icon in the global navigation bar, enabling users to switch between research experiences.
- The content you previously accessed via Lexis.com will surface under the US flag in the Pacific experience versus the content’s jurisdiction. This will distinguish the domestic and international content included in your local online agreement.
- Each interface has unique localised tools which bringout the best in the content, for example:
- The US Research experience offers Shepards, the Explore Content pod, the search term location bar that colour-codes your results and the relevant word wheel to provide search suggestions.
- The Pacific Research experience offers Advanced Search Forms tailored for Pacific content, CaseBase interactive tables, CaseBase browse, in-plan filter and relevant AU and NZ word wheels.
You will now have access to more domestic and international content due to the way we are grouping content sources to facilitate the transition from Lexis.com to Lexis Advance".
