  • A main search box combining searches provided from multiple sources such as newspapers,law journals and court cases
  • Content specific widgets for court cases,news and company information located under the hot topics box

New features include:

  • Mind map for finding related topic terms
  • Images search for photos and videos from reference books
  • Find a book which lets you search in specific reference materials
