LexisNexis UK have a new platform, Lexis+ UK - when will these collections be available? What is happening with the current Lexis Library UK products?
LexisNexis UK have created a new platform and suite of products, called Lexis+ UK, and are migrating libraries over time from the Lexis Library products to this new platform. They have supplied Ex Libris with new title lists for these collections and are currently setting up the new collections and lists in the Ex Libris knowledgebases. These collections will be available in Revision 36 (released on September 4th). In 360 KB these collections are available immediately.
For Alma, please note that it may take a few days until this change is reflected in your Institution Zone You can check your last update date from community zone from Alma main menu help page.
The new collections are:
|Collection Name||Alma Collection ID||360 KB DB code||
SFX Target Name
|SFX Target ID|
|LexisPlusUK Academic Library||614920000000003585||LAAQE||LEXISPLUSUK_ACADEMIC_LIBRARY||4920000000003585|
|LexisPlusUK International Legal||614920000000003594||LMKDQ||LEXISPLUSUK_INTERNATIONAL_LEGAL||4920000000003594|
|LexisPlusUK UK Newspapers||614920000000003593||LQALC||LEXISPLUSUK_UK_NEWSPAPERS||4920000000003593|
For now, the current "Lexis Library" collections will remain in the KBs in parallel with the new Lexis+ UK collections while customers adopt and migrate to the new platform. LexisNexis UK will inform us when the migration period will end, at which point we will remove the Lexis Library collections.
LexisPlus UK Linking
In Alma and SFX, there are parser parameters for your LexisPlus SSO/Federation IDP and/or MIP (see below for information on how to obtain these values from LexisNexis UK).
360 KB customers, use the Holding URL Replacement page to add a suffix for your SSO or MIP.
For SSO, the suffix should be &federationidp= followed by your Federation IDP
For MIP, the suffix should be &identityprofileid= followed by your MIP
If you have any problems with making the replacements, or you are an Intota customer, please file a case via the Support Portal and our Technical Support team will assist you.
You should have received your LexisPlus SSO/Federation IDP and/or MIP from LexisNexis UK before your library transitioned to LexisPlus UK.
