“When students can’t find information, I always send them to LexisNexis and they are thrilled when they find all the information they are looking for—and then some—for their papers. Our faculty often use LexisNexis for their assignments.”

“LexisNexis Academic is my go-to source for education law. After a bit of instruction, students usually find what they need. If is our primary source for news articles and is our only source for current articles from The New York Times. Many students and faculty also use if for book and film reviews. I find it useful for company information, including financials. Overall, it is a multifaceted product that we would find difficult to replace.”
