License Agreements (Terms & Conditions)

Libraries that have already submitted the Subscriber Agreement and the Subscriber Terms and Conditions do not have to complete a new license agreement at renewal. These automatically renew when a library commits to the service via the Order or Renewal Form.

How to Order or Renew

Please note the following:

  • All new subscribers must fully complete and sign the Subscriber Agreement and Subscriber Terms and Conditions.
  • All new subscribers must also provide confirmation of their tax status. For tax exempt organizations, please provide a copy of your tax exemption certificate with your order materials. Organizations that are not exempt may simply provide confirmation of this status in writing.
  • Law Schools cannot subscribe in conjunction with a main campus library. Law School subscriptions must be submitted separately. Law School pricing is not FTE based.
  • Libraries that have already submitted the Subscriber Agreement and the Subscriber Terms and Conditions do not have to complete a new license agreement at renewal. These automatically renew when a library commits to the service via the Order or Renewal Form.
  • Please do not list IP addresses on the Order Form(s) except for new orders only. All existing subscribers must make changes to their IP addresses via email directly from the library to LexisNexis.
  • It is important to complete all information on the Order Form. LexisNexis will not process orders that do not include complete FTE, the products being ordered, and user contact information for each library even if the library has previously ordered. Provide the total FTE, not a weighted number.
  • Mid-year subscribers must have their orders in to Minitex by the 14th of any month in order to start the 1st of the following month. Your renewal date will be July 1, no matter when you began your subscription.
  • The LexisNexis policy does not allow mid-subscription cancellations. You can cancel a subscription by not renewing your order.
  • After placing an order, you will be automatically subscribed to a Minitex listserv for this product in order to receive product news, updates and renewal information. We encourage you to sign up for the LexisNexis listserv as well.

Renewals

Order forms for LexisNexis renewals and confirmations for ProQuest CIS renewals must be received by Minitex no later than May 9. Annual subscriptions for all products begin on July 1.

New Orders

For new orders, please contact Minitex.
