Email and download options now available on WestlawNext

Jenkins introduced WestlawNext last June, and now WestlawNext has opened up emailing and downloading options. Some restrictions do apply, including a limit of emailing and/or downloading to no more than 20 documents per session.

WestlawNext allows both natural language searching as well as Boolean terms and connectors seamlessly in one search box by using West Search, WestlawNext's algorithmic search engine. This search box will also search all core content without having to select a database. Searches can also be done by jurisdiction, topic, or title.

Currently all three library Westlaw terminals have both WestlawNext and Classic Westlaw. Select library computers have the West e-Learning Center, which provides brief tutorials on using WestlawNext.

Come visit the library and see a librarian for help emailing and/or downloading your WestlawNext documents.
