Librarian Relations Consultant Research Tip: More segments now available in company profiles

Additional segments are now available for searching Company Profiles in the Lexis Advance service. New segments allow users to pinpoint locations based on MSA and industries based on NAICS codes when searching company profile content. Find the segments listed on the Advanced Search page for Company Profiles or you can enter the segments directly into the Red Search Box.

The NAICS segment allows users to restrict a search using the North American Industry System Code descriptions. Find out more about NAICS codes from the U.S. Census Bureau website.

Search example: naics(semiconductors)

The MSA segment allows users to search the metropolitan statistical area where a company is located. See the U.S. Census Bureau website for access to federal statistical area delineation files.

Search example: msa(boston)
