Lexis Nexis databases have upgraded to a new integrated platform.

Lexis Nexis AU and websites now have a single sign on and allow users to move between the two databases using the quick menu at the top left of the screen.

LexisNexis new

Casebase Cases have also been integrated and can be found under the Lexis Advance Pacific Research Browse.

All changes have been made to Library Search Links and are searchable under the original database names.

On the database itself Lexis Nexis AU is named “Lexis Advance Pacific Research,” and is “Lexis Nexis Advance US Research”

If you experience any issues accessing the new database, please contact Ask Library staff and we will resolve this issue as soon as possible.
