As of July 1, 2009, LexisNexis Academic will no longer be available through the Rutgers University Libraries. It will be replaced by Westlaw Campus Research which offers similar extensive coverage of legal, news and business components.
In addition to the availability of Westlaw Campus Research news coverage comparable with what was formerly available through LexisNexis Academic, the Libraries subscribe to Access World News which also provides excellent newspaper coverage.
You may consult with a reference librarian for help in using the new Westlaw Campus Research or for other ways to help locate the resources you need, or you may use the Ask a Librarian service. Training sessions for Westlaw Campus Research will be available. The Libraries regret any inconvenience to our user community.
