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. If you have lost this information or did not receive it, please contact LexisNexis UK - Telephone:  0330 161 1234  or submit a request
