UD access to Nexis Uni (LexisNexis) ended June 30; replaced with Access World News

Several data points have informed the University Libraries’ decision to replace Nexis Uni (also known as LexisNexis) with a new-to-UD database, Access World News. Liaison librarians are here to offer support during this transition. View the list of librarians or contact the library for a referral

 Access World News includes:

  • 12,000 total sources with 100+ Ohio publications and representation from 200 countries.

    • Includes the Columbus Dispatch and the Dayton Daily News and many more.

  • 300+ full-color PDF newspapers with same-day delivery from around the globe.

  • Seamless integration with library databases and discovery tools such as UDiscover.

  • Diverse news media such as trade journals, video and audio files, broadcast transcripts and web-only content.

Instead of Nexis Uni, we suggest other sources to find company profiles and legal cases. See below.

More Information

Declining usage of and content within Nexis Uni, significant cost savings, faculty feedback and comparisons with other schools were considered in the decision-making process. The library continuously evaluates every subscription we pay for in order to remain fiscally responsible in the current budget climate while still addressing research and teaching needs.
