Improved Off-campus Access to Law Library Databases

Posted by Library Blog on 01/11/2010 at 12:00 AM

The Law Library staff worked during the holiday break to improve off-campus access to the law school’s various research databases.  Changes no longer need to be made to your favorite web browser’s settings in order to access these databases. 

When accessing a particular database from the WebCatalog or the law library’s web pages, you will be prompted at an Off-Campus Database Login page to type in your name and the barcode located on the back of your law school ID.  Should you receive an error message, contact the law library to verify that your patron record is up to date!

Some of the databases which use the new procedure for off-campus access are the Bureau of National Affairs topical reports and libraries, CCH Intelliconnect, Constitutions of the Countries of the World Online, Foreign Law Guide, HeinOnline, Justis for U.K. materials, LexisNexis Congressional, the Making of Modern Law: Legal Treatises 1800 - 1926, Oxford Reports on International Law, and the United Nations Treaty Collection.
