Lexis Advance – Now At ACLL

Lexis Advance ~ Introductory Class To Be Offered

Lexis Advance legal database with its new and improved user interface is now available at no cost on the Alameda County Law Library Oakland Main Library’s public terminals.

lexis_advance_logoLexis has changed the focus on the opening search screen to “the big red box” – found top and center on the Lexis Advance home screen.  Search terms are entered into the box — “Google style.”  Search results can then be narrowed by choosing from an array of categories listed on the left hand side of the results screen.  Also, additional keywords can be used to refine the search results using the smaller box also found along the left-hand side of the screen.
