SUBJECT: Web access to LexisNexis™ Government Periodicals Index

(name of library) has acquired LexisNexis™ Government Periodicals Index—your key to unlocking the wealth of material published by the United States federal government. As a publisher of information relating to diverse subjects-business, agriculture, national security, the environment, nutrition, transportation-the federal government offers numerous magazines and newsletters with substantial research value. LexisNexis Government Periodicals Index helps researchers access this body of literature through detailed subject and author indexing.

With retrospective coverage back to 1988, the service facilitates access to more than 125,000 articles from the government's most important periodicals. The database is available campus-wide, with no limit on the number of users. Researchers use simple fill-in-the-blank search forms on a standard Web browser while still taking advantage of the powerful LexisNexis search engine and the ability to use boolean logic.

Library sources say that the new service requires no formal training and that even first-time database searchers can use the system productively.
