Lexis - your ID will remain active until 8/1. For access after 8/1, you need to register for a special ID here .  It is important to register for your Grad ID before 8/1 since you will need a current Lexis Advance ID to register.

As always, if you have any questions ask your favorite Reference Librarian.
