1. How do I choose search terms? Think about the words that must be included to help you find what you need. Nouns are the basic keywords you should start with. Think: names, title, place, event, etc.
~ Lexis reads word next to each other as a phrase: so herald towers reads as “herald towers”
~ and is the most important connecting word you can use, start by separating words with an and – ex.: citywide and payroll
2. Choose date range, default is “all dates”.
3. Choose your source, “all news” is a good option. If you want a specific publication, type the name into the box “By Name”.
4. To combine sources, click Find Sources, where it says select source. A good one for local news is “New York Sources.”
