Can’t Come to the Library? Library Resources Can Come to You!

Students have been given an additional spring break week this year (YAY!) and will move to online classes starting the week of March 23.  Since you’re not on campus, you might be wondering – how will I get information I need from the library? 

The Digital Resources page provides easy access to all of the library’s vast array of research options available in digital format. From materials supporting maritime research (American Maritime Cases), to Immigration research (ailalink), to legislative history (ProQuest Congressional and HeinOnline), the resources are there to for you wherever you are.

As you are studying, you have access to eBook resources from the Lexis Study Aids (the Mastering series, the Q&A series, the Understanding series), the West Academic Online Study Aids Library (the Nutshells, the Short & Happy series, the Exam Pro series, the Acing series), and the Wolters Kluwer Online Study Aids Library (the Examples & Explanations series, Glannon Guides, Inside series). Not certain what titles might be helpful? The library’s Study Aids Guides page, provides guides by class with information on the resources available by preferred learning style.

If you need assistance using these resources or have any research question, the staff of the library is here to help RWU Law students, faculty, and staff. All of the contact information is on the Ask a Librarian page. We’re happy to take your questions by chat, email, or phone call. The hope is to continue staffing the library Monday-Friday, 8:30-5:00, until the situation returns to normal.

We also know that not everything is available in digital format. If it is available in the law library, the library is temporarily expanding document delivery to include providing necessary copies from the collection.
