New Content in LexisNexis Academic – Full Shepards, Municipal Codes, ALR & AmJur

In addition to the password protected LexisNexis, there is also a campus wide product called LexisNexis Academic to which the UW Madison Libraries subscribe. Anyone may use this service at no charge at any campus library. Although it doesn’t offer everything in full Lexis, most of it is there.
LexisNexis Academic recently underwent a redesign and the layout is now quite similar to full LexisNexis. But in addition to the layout changes, it seems that some new sources were added. Most significant is the full availability of Shepards. Previously, Shepards was only available for US Supreme Court cases, but now it’s comprehensive. Another addition are selected municipal codes.
Also, according to product manager, Alistair Morrison, American Law Reports and American Jurisprudence on available on LN Academic, but probably only until the end of the year. That may have something to do with the removal of ALR from all Lexis products.
To see what’s available for Wisconsin, go to the “sources” tab and then “find sources” Do a search for the keyword “Wisconsin”. You might find something else you didn’t know what available. I did – the Wisconsin Administrative Code archive. I’m not sure if that’s new or not.
