Parrish Library’s Featured Database will give you a very brief introduction to the basic features of one of our specialized subscription databases. This time we’re featuring Nexis Uni, brought to you by LexisNexis, from RELX Group.

Focus: Nexis Uni features more than 15,000 news, business and legal sources from LexisNexis – including U.S. Supreme Court decisions dating back to 1790.
