LexisNexis® Patron Access

LexisNexis is offering free temporary access to Lexis Advance.

As a Patron of the Library you are probably aware that we offer Patron Access to LexisNexis.  LexisNexis has gone through extraordinary measures to work with the legal Community during Covid-19 and are continuing to provide Access to Library Patrons.  If you cannot otherwise conduct legal research you are welcome to register for a temporary Lexis Advance® ID at https://www.lexisnexis.com/en-us/pa-access.page and you will receive an ID within 1 business day. This ID will be good until July 31.  This ID allows you to conduct research on the cases, codes, and secondary resources needed for legal work and personal legal research. We are happy to work with you to maintain access to justice during this time.
