LexisNexis Related Content Now Available

Sue Altmeyer, Electronic Services Librarian, sue.altmeyer@law.csuohio.edu | August 03, 2009 – 09:10

When you pull up cases in LexisNexis, you can now see links on the lefthand side to:

  • ALR and other secondary sources
  • Cases in Brief – in-depth analysis of the case, subsequent developments and links to secondary sources and news.
  • Emerging Issues commentary
  • Matthew Bender publications
  • Briefs, Pleadings and Motions

As of August 1, Related Content is available for federal cases and cases from the twenty largest states. More states will be added later.

Related Content is LexisNexis’ answer to Westlaw’s Results Plus. The folks from Lexis point out that Related Content is reviewed by human editors, whereas Results Plus is compiled by computers and is not always relevant.
