The LexisNexis Academic database is a great resource for accessing news, business and law indexing/full-text database that covers journals, magazines, newsletters laws, court cases, regulations, patents, SEC filings, wire services, television and radio transcripts, directories and blogs.
To access the database from the main UW Libraries webpage, locate the "Articles and databases" box on the left side of the page. Click on the yellow icon containing an orange book in the upper-right of that box. When the databases page loads, you can access LexisNexis Academic by clicking on "L" in the "Databases by Title" box near the top of the page. The database is also available in the "Databases by Subject" in the "Law", "Business", "News and Newspapers", and "Communications and Journalism" listings.
This link will take you directly to the database: http://www-lib.uwyo.edu/utils/permalink.cfm?id=79778
(note: you must be UW student, faculty, or staff to access this database, or use one of the public terminals in the libraries; if off-campus you must also log onto the proxy server).
The library also has access to the LexisNexis State Capitol database. It contains state bills, laws, constitutions, proposed regulations, enacted regulations, legislature membership, and newspapers of record to allow users to search and compare all 50 states. The database can be accessed as described above or directly through this link: http://www-lib.uwyo.edu/utils/permalink.cfm?id=82205
Searching LexisNexis can be a bit tricky. On the left side of the LexisNexis homepage are links to video tutorials and research guides. If this information does not help you to use the database, contact the Research Help Desk (email@example.com) to inquire about getting instruction from a librarian.
