You should access databases and e-books through the library website unless it has an individual log-in, like Westlaw, Lexis, or Bloomberg. You will need your NetID and password to log in through our proxy server.
You can access any of the databases that the library subscribes to from most places that you have an internet connection, but there is one extra step you must take to do so if you are not connected to the on-campus network.
Navigate to the database or resource you want to use through the library's website. After clicking the link, you will be asked to provide your NetID and password to log in through our proxy server and access subscription databases from off campus. Note that many workplaces employ firewalls that will prevent access.
In addition to the print Academic Success Collection, we provide access to two digital study aid libraries: the LexisNexis Digital Library and the Wolters Kluwer Online Aid Library.
The catalog search bar on the law library home page defaults to searching for print materials in the law library collection. To search for e-resources as well, follow these steps:
You can filter your results using the options on the left of the results screen, including limiting to “Available online” or by Resource Type (Articles, Books, Reports, etc.). For e-resources, you may be prompted to log in to access a title. Typically, this will require entering your NetID and password. If the resource is in Westlaw, Lexis, or Bloomberg Law, it may require your individual username and password for those platforms.
