Finals are upon us, and all the students are studying hard to pass their exams. In light of the intense focus, I'd like to re-share the steps for accessing the study aids available via our Digital Library! LexisNexis has numerous supplemental study aids available (Q&As, Understanding series, and more), and we have access to them all electronically via our Digital Library! So if you're up late and can't come to the library to get the print version, or you want a book that's already checked out in print, take a look at our Digital Library! First, to access the Digital Library you will need the following things:
a device with internet connection;
modern web browser (Google Chrome; IE10; Firefox; Safari);
ID (number on your AMSL ID card) & Password (your last name, all lower-case).
Once you enter the Digital Library, you will find a wealth of resources available. Here are a few general specifications about the library and how it works:
24 hr. loan period
Items automatically return themselves at the end of the 24 hr. period so that there are no late fees
Read in Browser option
Download option in various formats
Within each title, you will find the following tools:
Table of Contents, which is hyperlinked directly to the specific chapter or section
Notes & Bookmarks, where you can access your saved notes and bookmarks
Search, where you can search throughout the title
Links -- blue ones to other places within the same title and green ones to Lexis Advance
Ability to highlight, copy, add notes, bookmark pages, etc. These annotations are saved in the Cloud and follow the book itself, so even if you have to retrieve the book from archive (i.e. if it has been superseded by a newer edition), your notes will still be accessible.
I hope you take advantage of these amazing resources! Again, the LexisNexis Digital Library includes copies of the Q&As and Understanding series as well as other titles that will help you while studying for finals! Good luck everyone!
