Librarian Relations Consultant Research Tip: Applying automatic filters in Settings on Lexis Advance

When doing research, it’s easy to refine to a content set before you run a search from the Explore Content pod. However, in Settings, you can have your default set to certain content categories automatically, narrowed by subcategories. This is an oldie, but goodie, for those avid researchers.

From your Settings, under More in the top navigation bar, click on Lexis Advance® Research from the left side of the screen and scroll down until you get to Narrow results. If you select this checkbox, some categories will be automatically narrowed by specific subcategories. Clicking on What’s this? will provide you with a list of the categories and associated subcategories. For example, Company & Financial results will automatically be narrowed by Company Profiles, or Statutes & Legislation will be narrowed by Codes.
