Entering Search Words
After you’ve selected an information source, you do a search by typing keywords into the Search terms box and then clicking on the red Search button.
Lexis-Nexis will scan the full text of all the stories or documents in the information source you selected and retrieve a list of any stories or documents in which your keywords appear.
Thus if you type in a single word, Lexis-Nexis will retrieve all the stories or documents that contain that word.
If you type in a series of words, Lexis-Nexis will treat that as a phrase and retrieve only the stories or documents that contain that exact phrase.
