NMSU library announces new databases

The New Mexico State University library has added "LEXIS-NEXIS Academic Universe" and "Ethnic NewsWatch" to its redesigned home Web page. The academic version of LEXIS-NEXIS allows users to locate full-text and abstracts of comprehensive news, business and legal information. Users also can search a variety of trade and academic journals, foreign and domestic news sources, regional U.S. news services, radio and television transcripts, federal and state case law, medical, legislative, and industry news and annual reports from the Securities and Exchange Commission.


Ethnic NewsWatch provides access to more than 300,000 full-text articles from over 200 newspapers and magazines of the ethnic, minority and native press. Ethnic NewsWatch includes a Spanish language search capability and content including three daily Spanish language newspapers.

This Web product replaces a CD-ROM version, making ethnic information easier to search and access.

NMSU main campus users can access these databases using the Article Databases page at http://lib.nmsu.edu/article.html. Off-campus users can connect to the Web through the NMSU Aggie Access software available from NMSU Computing and Networking.
