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

We often know the content we want to search from the start. The Explore Content pod is one way to select desired content prior to running a search. There is also a setting you can choose to have certain content categories automatically narrowed by subcategories. This is an oldie but goodie for those avid Lexis Advance users!

Click More in the top navigation bar and select Settings, click on Lexis Advance® Research on the left side of the screen and scroll down until you get to Narrow results. If you select the 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 the subcategory it will be narrowed down to. For example, Company & Financial results will automatically be narrowed to Company Profiles, and Statutes & Legislation will be narrowed to Codes.

This is a helpful shortcut. Don’t forget to save your settings before you close out of it.
