Your Research Scenario:
For this tutorial, you will be searching for information on the topic of Google Glass and privacy issues.
LexisNexis defaults to a search of all types of material, but we only want to focus on news.
You should get around 1000 results.
Since we are interested in privacy issues surrounding Google Glass, let's add that.
What just happened to your results?
The Results Group menu to the left of the results, displays the types of materials you searched.
Which two newspapers have the most article on your topic?
Let's access one of our articles.
The full-text of the article should be displayed.
In addition to reading the article you can also email it, download, or print it using these icons:
You can send the article directly to either your Dropbox or Google Drive accounts.
Look at some of the other options in this pop-up cloud window.
In how many different formats can you send an article?
Google Glass was not developed until mid-2011, so first change the date.
LexisNexis allows you to search specific areas of an article such as the byline or the headline.
Which statement about your segment search is correct?
You're almost done!
Instead of searching for any type of article, let's just look for editorials.
You should have less than 10 results.
Note that at all of these results are either an opinion piece or an editorial.
