Getting started with LexisNexis Digital Library
With the LexisNexis Digital Library, you can find legal texts and other materials (like professional development books), then read them digitally.
With the LexisNexis Digital Library from OverDrive, you can do your book research digitally on any device, anytime—even offline.
When you open the LexisNexis Digital Library for the first time, enter the library code provided by your organization, then sign in.
On the Home screen, you'll see the ebooks you've recently read, along with your most recent annotations and tags.
To find ebooks, use the search bar or go to the Browse library screen to browse subjects and collections.
In addition to legal texts, your organization may offer other free materials, like professional development ebooks and more.
Use tags to organize ebooks in the library however you like. You can create as many as you need and label them however you prefer, like by case, project number, subject, and more.
Start reading most ebooks simply by selecting Read. You can open these ebooks whenever you need to—they're always available.
By default, if you're on Wi-Fi, all your ebooks will automatically download for offline use, as long as you're using the Chrome, Firefox, or Edge (Chromium) browser or the LexisNexis Digital Library app.
Some ebooks are available in limited quantities. You can borrow these ebooks for a limited amount of time, or place holds on them if they're already in use.
Once you're reading an ebook, you can make annotations, which you can easily organize, sort, and find under My annotations. You can also add your annotations to the Export queue and export them as CSV or PDF.
The My books screen shows your reading history, so you can quickly pick up where you left off in any ebook.
