Dear JRN faculty and students,

The resources I've pulled together for this guide will be helpful to get you started on your research; however, to search the complete selection of databases provided by the Library, please consult the Library Web Page. Also:

  • Lexis Nexis Public Records Database, aka "Nosey Nexis," for Journalism faculty and students. The copyright agreement stipulates that I  perform the actual searches, so please feel free to email me to set up an appointment!
  • For PACER/court records or any specific legal questions please email the law librarian, David Hollander ( or simply make an appointment with him via WASS. Also, for SEC/property records or anything finacially oriented, contact the financial data librarian Bobbi (

Happy researching!

Audrey B. Welber
