Did you know you can combine sources across tabs?
LexisNexis released this enhancement recently. For Example, to combine the following files, check the box to the left of the following sources (or sources of your choice), Federal and State Cases, Federal Agency Decisions, News, Most Recent Two Years and Standard & Poor’s Corporate Descriptions, Plus News, and click on the red Combine Sources box located on the menu screen on the upper right, and type in your search.
The results screen provides links to each of the sources searched so that you can see how many cases, agency decisions, news articles, and S&P results you retrieved.
name(merck) or (company(merck pre/3 #90plus#) and subject(litigation pre/3 #90plus#) and hlead(vioxx)) and date geq (02/13/2004) retrieves all of the cases with Merck named as a party in a case and news articles where Merck is tagged as a company, litigation is tagged as a subject, and the Hlead segment contains Vioxx.
Using Combine Sources allows you to do one search across several sources and see the results for each source separately. Using Combine Sources is a great way to save time!
