Access Online Resources

The Law Library provides access to three public computer workstations located on the plaza level of the library. Users can access the library's online resources such as databases (subject to license restrictions) and other resources available on the web. Use of the Library's electronic resources is governed by the Law Library Acceptable Use of Electronic Resources policy. Please Note: the Law Library does not provide an option to print from these workstations. Patrons using these workstations may download documents onto their own flash drives (the Law Library does not provide flash drives). Some databases may provide an option to email documents.
