Customizable Westlaw Tabs

Tabs in the new Customizable Westlaw format have multiple features to make your Westlaw experience easier and more user-friendly. You can build and rearrange the content on your Customizable Westlaw tabs so it's most intuitive to you, and designed to fit your workflow.
With the new customizable Westlaw tabs, you are able to:

  • Drag and drop content (within a tab or now from one tab to another*).
  • Include up to 50 tabs (instead of only six) on your tab display.
  • Create custom tabs that include any database from Westlaw's extensive collection
  • Add, delete, rename and change preferences for displayed items.
  • Easily email customized tabs to colleagues.        
  • Create on-screen "sticky notes."

    Check out some of our Customizable Westlaw tabs:
  • News
  • Librarians
  • Finance and Banking
  • Intellectual Property
  • Labor and Employment

    Look for these Customizable Westlaw tabs by going to Add Westlaw Tabs from the Add a Tab screen. Or you can create your own completely customized tab by going to Create a Tab from the Add a Tab screen. For a complete list of all tabs available currently in the Customizable Westlaw format, please ask your Librarian Relations Manager.

    *To drag and drop content from one tab to another, both tabs must be in the new Customizable Westlaw format.

    Survey Checklists

    Westlaw's Survey offerings have grown again! First we introduced 50 State Statutory Surveys. Then we added Regulatory Surveys and customized surveys with our Survey Builder tool. Now introducing Survey Checklists! Survey Checklists provide step-by-step requirements for a variety of compliance, research, and information retrieval needs. These checklists are editorially created and provide references to statutes, regulations or other primary source documents and also include links to other survey materials that are topically related.

    Survey Checklists are available in the following topic areas:   
  • BLUE SKY   

    Look for Survey Checklists in the 50 State Surveys tab or by going to the Survey Checklists database (SURVEY-CHECK). Use the Table of Contents feature located in the top right of the Survey Checklists search center to browse our Survey Checklists offerings. Save time and insure accurate results with Survey Checklists!
