IN RE:  LexisNexis Academic will be replaced by Nexis Uni interface by the end of 2017 (as per the vendor)
Dear Faculty:
I am forwarding an alert that was sent to subscribers of LexisNexis Academic (information directed to librarians was edited out).
Sincerely,
Cathy

The new product, called Nexis Uni, will replace the current LexisNexis Academic product.  …The new product will be released to students this summer.   Click here:  http://www.lexisnexis.com/en-us/products/nexis-uni.page to see more information...

When Nexis Uni is released this summer to students, access will be via IP authentication for campus-wide access.  Students will be encouraged to register for an ID and password to take advantage of the personalization features of the new product.  They can self-register, so no library staff needs to be involved to manage that process.

The current LexisNexis Academic interface will be replaced by the new product by the end of 2017.  LexisNexis plans to migrate students over the summer, and at least before the beginning of the fall semester (August).  The migration is mandatory.  Libraries will be using the current academic product until the migration occurs. The current academic product will be retired at the end of December of this year.
