Overall Satisfaction with Lexis Search Advantage

I'm only familiar with its use in the newsroom, where it's used to research previous news stories, biographical and real estate information. We also use it to try to track people down, looking for addresses and phone numbers of a subject, relatives, and neighbors. Certain people are more expert in different aspects.
  • Searching for news stories on a subject.
  • Tracking down people.
  • Tracking down previous residences of a person.
  • Not all address location information is accurate or up to date.
  • The previous search function for news stories was easier to use than what was changed last year.
  • No idea -- I don't deal with our finances.
Lexis is much more refined in its results. I use it because it is a newsroom standard and it is what is provided by the company.
It's been several years since I called for help but when I did, Lexis was very helpful.

It is good for researching previous news stories on a subject and it can be helpful for tracking down people and their biographical information. If you're looking for academic studies on a subject, this is not the best place to go in my opinion. It is also not always current with addresses and phone numbers.
