Lexis Advance now requires a first time registration for staff and students.
You can create an account by simply logging into Lexis Advance from the Library website. Follow the link to Resources > e-Resources > Databases by Title > L > Lexis Advance
After selecting the Lexis Advance link, you will be directed to a page that prompts you to choose either staff or student. Select the option that is relevant to you.
Setting your preferences for first time users:
On the Welcome to Lexis Advance page select either Research for international content (previously Lexis.com) or Pacific Research for local content then click Get Started
Select the appropriate filter and select Save Preferences.
You will then be directed to the Lexis Advance start page where you can start searching for content.
Changing your preferences at any time via Settings:
At the top right of the Lexis Advance page select More > Settings
On the settings page select either Research for international content (previously Lexis.com) or Pacific Research for local content. Select other settings as required.
Scroll to the bottom of the page and select Save Changes to Settings & Close
Go back to More at the top of the page and select Sign Out
Select Sign In with UWS [Staff or Student] login then select Sign in
You will be directed back to the landing page and your starting page preference should appear in the top left hand corner.
