When “all the news that’s fit to print” is just too much

November 22, 2010

From the Westlaw Reference AttorneysWestlaw tip: No news is good news, they say, and less news is often better than more news. When you get too many results from the databases ALLNEWS and ALLNEWSPLUS, try using the function that lets you limit your searches to publications from certain geographic regions.

Simply click on the “Limit ALLNEWS” or “Limit ALLNEWSPLUS” link to the right of the search box, just under the Search Westlaw button. From this screen you can select United States or International publications. You can also use the “Limit Your Search using SmartTerms” boxes below to be very specific about your news sources.
