Database change - 'LexisNexisAU' now 'Lexis Advance Pacific'

Lexis Advance Pacific is the new platform that will replace LexisNexisAU after November 2017.  It provides access to JCU Library subscribed Australian Lexis publications, including Carter's Criminal Law of Queensland, New South Wales Law Reports, CaseBase and Queensland Reports.

JCU staff and students are able to access both the new Lexis Advance Pacific platform and the LexisNexisAU platform concurrently until the end of November 2017.

There are a number of differences in the new platform, and not only in the appearance. More flexibility is provided with an annotation facility and document download options, giving the researcher a way to personalise and manage the search process. It is easy to create and collaborate using the new platform. Formerly the Practice Areas tab involved another login session, now with Lexis Advance Pacific, it is possible to switch from one section to another.

The new platform provides the option to visually map search history. The home page shows the researcher's history, favourites, alerts and work folders, as well as subscribed publication titles.

Not sure where to begin? Handy tutorials on searching, using search results, work folders and CaseBase are available behind Help to guide the user. Alternatively, there are other options under tips for searching , and clicking on the More label are user guides, webinars and podcasts from the Lexis Advance section of the Knowledge Network Pacific.

Why not have a play and build your own case folders?
