WestlawNext tip: Use Favorites to narrow search results

November 4, 2010

How does the Favorites feature on WestlawNext improve your efficiency? We know of at least two ways.

(1) Use Favorites for fast access to a favorite category page. If you often start your research at a particular category page – e.g., Michigan Civil Jurisprudence – click Add to Favorites at that category page. This will make it so that, with a single click at the home page, you can return to the category page.

(2) Use Favorites for quick retrieval of favorite publications included in your search. Any publication you select as a favorite becomes available as a filter you can use to narrow a search result, provided that at least one document from the publication is retrieved in the search.
