New Post-Search Filters for Drafting Materials and Dictionaries

Lexis Advance Quicklaw now offers new post-search filters for Drafting Materials and Dictionaries. These post-search filters will enable the user to quickly-and-easily narrow results to view documents for a specific source within the collection of Drafting Materials and Dictionaries that are offered on Lexis Advance Quicklaw.

To use this feature:

  1. Enter your search terms in the Big Red Search Box, then click the arrow to the right of Search Everything.
  2. Under Content Type, select CA-Drafting Materials and/or CA-Dictionaries and click Search.
  3. If you have searched both CA-Drafting Materials and CA-Dictionaries, use the filters on the left to toggle to the content you would like to view first (i.e. in the example below we selected CA-Drafting Materials).
  4. Under Narrow By, select Sources, and then select the source you are interested in

Law Reviews and Journals Advanced Search Form
Now Allows For Date Range Searching
(Based on Year)

In response to customer feedback, we have enhanced our Law Reviews and Journals Advanced Search Form to allow for date-range searching. Options now include the ability to restrict results to documents from: year before, year after or year range.

This new feature allows the researcher searching the LexisNexis Canada Law Reviews and Journals collection to focus results to a specific point-in-time by using pre-search date filtering.

Enhancements for IP Authenticated Subscribers

We continue to make enhancements to Lexis Advance Quicklaw for clients accessing the service via IP Authentication. With this release, we have added a new feature which will automatically clear history and favourites when a session remains inactive for a period of 15 minutes. Researchers are provided with a one-minute warning in order to allow them to continue the session with history and favourites intact.

Accessibility Enhancements

Enhancements continue to be made to Lexis Advance Quicklaw to provide improved accessibility for persons with disabilities. With this release enhancements were made to the Lexis Advance Quicklaw Search Results Page and Help Screens.
