Off-campus access to the Law Library's digital resources is available to Roger Williams University School of Law faculty, students, and staff using the links from Law Library's Digital Resources page and WebCatalog. All patrons also have the ability to view their own Patron Record.

With both options, the library software will prompt you to provide your name, library barcode, and PIN.

  • The library barcode is on the back of your School of Law ID and will start with the number "25166...".
  • Your PIN is six alpha/numeric characters selected by you.

You should see a Login screen like the one below:
