Nexis - news and business information database

Nexis provides full text access to UK national and regional newspapers as well as international newspapers and newswires, and foreign language news sources. Coverage is from the 1980s onwards and is updated daily. Nexis also provides access to business information such as company profiles and industry reports from a variety of sources.

Nexis has a range of search screens for the different types of information sources that it indexes e.g. news, company profiles etc. You can navigate between these search screens by clicking on the Search tab and corresponding subtabs at the top of the screen. Alternatively, click on the Sources tab to browse or search for specific information sources.

The University Library has developed a Nexis worksheet to guide you through conducting a news search. The worksheet can be accessed from this web page by clicking the link on the right, under See also. A range of tutorials are also available from the Help link in Nexis (located in the top right corner of the screen). There are also help links on each page with information about that particular page.

Nexis can be accessed via StarPlus (search under the University Collections tab) or from this web page. You will be prompted to sign into MUSE if you have not already done so.
