Other Ways to Find Sources

There are a couple of other options for finding sources of information in the Nexis database.

After selecting More sources at the main search page, at the top left of the new page you can select:

  • Alphabet - clicking on this option at the top will give you alphabetical lists of the titles of all the information sources in the LexisNexis database.
  • Browse Sources - clicking on this tab at the top left will let you browse through the various information sources available on LexisNexis, using topical folders and sub-folders.

To then add an information source to your list of searchable sources use the same procedure described above for a keyword search.
