Heads up Lexis users! LexisNexis is switching to a single ID system this weekend, meaning that starting next week Law School users will only have access to Lexis through the Lexis Advance platform with a Lexis Advance ID. If you have already registered your Lexis Advance ID, no further action is needed.
What does this mean for Lexis.com?
- Lexis.com IDs will deactivate on or about June 22.
- Users will still be able to access Lexis.com through a link in Lexis Advance.
What about my alerts set up on Lexis.com?
- Unfortunately, alerts set up on Lexis.com cannot be transferred to Lexis Advance.
- If you would like to continue receiving updates, you will need to set them up again on Lexis Advance.
- To create new versions of your existing Lexis.com alerts in Lexis Advance, run a search for the same content in Advance and select the gold bell icon to create a new search alert. To review or edit your Advance alerts, select My Workspace > Alerts at the top of any screen.
How about printing?
- Users on Lexis.com will no longer be able to print to the Lexis printers, but will be able to print to an attached printer through the browser.
- Free printing to Lexis printers is available through Lexis Advance.
As the migration is taking place this weekend, there will be a service interruption from 9 pm CST on Friday, June 21, through 10 am CST on Sunday, June 23. In the interim, keep in mind that the University of Texas at Austin community has access to a campus-wide version called LexisNexis Academic, which includes state and federal case law, codes, and regulations; a number of treatises and secondary sources, including the full text of law reviews and the legal encyclopedia American Jurisprudence 2d; and access to Shepard’s citation service for case law and selected secondary sources.
