Lexis Advance Interface To Change Summer 2014

Among law librarians, there has been almost constant negative feedback of the Lexis Advance interface since its inception. 

It looks like Lexis listened, and it is unveiling a new Lexis Advance interface this summer. 

Lexis has released a few informational videos on the new Lexis Advance interface. Law Librarians noted that Lexis held a 28 minute webinar about the new interface. You can go here for playback of the video. 

Lexis has also released a short informational video on YouTube available here

On first impression, the new Lexis Advance interface looks cleaner and more user-friendly. The only downside for me is that it sounds like they will be releasing it right around the time that I teach our Research & Writing students how to use the databases. It won't leave much time to review the content before heading into the classroom.

I suppose that is the plight of holding classes year round. We don't get the summer months off to revamp our curriculum.
