Re: Lexis/Nexis UNIVerse

Faye and others

I tried to find out information on L/N Univ on their web page and it was
very limited.  A search of their site revealed only a single press release
that announced its operation at Florida State University.  Our University
of Pittsburgh Law School's L/N account representative told me that it did
not feature the full range of L/N databases and services available in
either the commercial or law school market, but still contained a high
percentage of total databases.  He further indicated that it was being
marketed toward large undergraduate universities. 

As a law school librarian, I've used L/N for almost 15 years and am
impressed with the product as a whole.  We've gotten a number of requests
for L/N assistance and passwords, which due to the restrictions in our law
school contracts I have been unable to accomodate.  I know the University
of Pittsburgh main library systems is looking into L/N Universe, but the
law school will be retaining its law school contract.
