Off-campus Access to Law Library Databases!

Posted by Library Blog on 10/08/2009 at 12:00 AM

The Law Library subscribes to various databases for legal research.  Among them are the BNA subject databases such as U.S. Law Week, HeinOnline’s Law Journal Library, the Foreign Law Guide, LexisNexis Congressional, the Making of Modern Law: Legal Treatises 1800 - 1926, and the United Nations Treaty Collection.  Use of these databases is restricted to faculty, staff and currently enrolled students of the School of Law.

To access these databases from off-campus, you will need to use the library’s proxy server. Click here for instructions for setting up your browser to use the proxy server.  Once you are using the proxy server, you will be prompted for your name and barcode number (from the back of your student ID).

Contact a Reference Librarian if you need assistance with accessing the Law Library’s subscription databases.
