Knowledge & Research Consultant Tip: Streamline News Searches by Fine-Tuning Your Settings
Reviewing your settings can help make your News searching more efficient. A couple key adjustments here can make a big difference. Go to the top right on the black navigation bar and click More and then Settings:
Set the Number of results to display per page to 50; it defaults to 10. Making this change to the maximum allowed will help reduce the amount of page advances that you will need to take in order to review the results.
Changing the Sort court, location, jurisdiction, and publisher filters: settings to Alphabetically (A-Z) will make it easier to scan for the information you need. This will be helpful with the publisher filter as well as reviewing news articles.
You can also change the sort feature for any content on Lexis. The default will be relevance but with news searching it can be most helpful sorting by the more recent articles. Select News to be sorted by Date (newest-oldest).
These few changes to your settings will help make your news searching efforts even more powerful.
