Lexis-Nexis Toolbar 

I just installed the Lexis-Nexis toolbar on my work computer. Using this toolbar, I can do research from any webpage. It is fairly straight forward; just enter terms or citations in the search box, choose a database, and click search. The toolbar allows you to choose between Term & Connector and Natural Language searching. I am trying out a search logic that is supposed to automatically detect whether I am using Term & Connector or Natural Language searching based on the terms entered in the search box. Could turn out to be a time saver, why not give it a try?
