COVID-19 Library Operations Update

Check out the latest on currently available library services.

Law Database Trials

Due to a significant decline in usage (an 86% decrease in downloads from 2017 to 2019), curricular changes, and high subscription costs, the Library is considering the replacement of the Nexis Uni database (formerly known as Lexis Nexis Academic) with a lower cost yet comparable legal electronic resource.

We currently have trials to Hein Online Academic and Westlaw Campus Research as possible replacements for Nexis Uni.

If you use legal databases for your research and/or teaching, please spend some time using Hein, Westlaw, and Nexis Uni and provide feedback about content and interface aspects in the following survey. Please complete the survey by Friday, April 17.

Your input is appreciated and will help the Library decide which resource would best meet the campus’s legal research needs.
