Lexis and Westlaw

Unlike other research databases, Zotero will not automatically fill in citation metadata for items in Westlaw and Lexis platforms.  Two work arounds:

1.  Manually enter the metadata:  Change the document type to "article", "case" to reveal the proper fields.

2.  Download articles as PDFs and let Zotero extract citation metadata from the file.

Download the document as a PDF.

Drag PDFs into your Zotero library.  Right click on the item and select choose "Retrieve Metadata for PDF".
