Librarian Relations Consultant Research Tip: Finding segments by content type using the new Lexis Advance home page

Segment searching has always been a useful precision search tool for librarians and other advanced researchers using Lexis Advance. However, one doesn’t always know what segments are available for a particular content set. Use Advanced Search to quickly locate segments by content type.

First, open up MORE OPTIONS (if not already open)

Then click the Advanced Search link.

The template that comes up is the generic one for searching everything, but now you can either click the “Select a specific content type” link …

and choose the appropriate content category …

OR scroll down below the template and choose a content category.

Once selected, the search template will open with the relevant segments for searching that content category.
