    Lexis/Nexis cannot be searched if Lexis, Lexis Nexis or Lexis-Nexis is entered in the locate database name.
    This is understandable since the title field is searched without truncation.
    Most users are likely to use Lexis Nexis or Lexis-Nexis. So, is it possible to make the database searchable by Lexis Nexis or Lexis?

    We suggest adding “Lexis Nexis” and “Lexis-Nexis” to the fields“Alternative Name” on the "Presentation Secondary " tab in the IRD Subscription to enable such searches.
