LexisNexis Academic is a large collection of databases from a single aggregator vendor. It is especially useful for finding topical news articles from through the world, business news and company financial information, legal information and court rulings.

On the databases directory, you may go to the main page for the database or you may go directly to the general subset you need, e.g. hot topics, news search, legal search, or get company information.  In Brightspace, select the "Library" link from the navigation bar and then the law research guide.   Now select a LexisNexis search box; logins and passwords are provided. 

Within most of the search screens, you have several choices in limiting and refining your search. Some of the limits are: Source (particular subsets of publications), Date or time frame (today, this week, past six months ... all available dates), types of articles or general subject category, court types, etc. These are available in drop down menus indicated by a button beside the form field.
