Q. If I'm off-campus, how do I get access to the Law Library's online journals or ebooks?
You may gain full-text access while off-campus to our online journals, ebooks or databases through our web pages, catalog and research guides. By going through the links found on our website, you will be connected to the electronic or digital resources through our proxy service (currently Shibboleth) and will be recognized as our patron after you log in with your GULC NetID and Password when prompted. To find a known:
- Database: Look for it through our Database Directory.
- Journal publication: Search for the title in our Journal Finder, or see the FAQ "How do I find electronic or online copies of a journal or newspaper?"
- Ebook publication: Search for the known title through our library catalog.
- Article: Search for the known title in our catalog using the "Law Library Catalog + Articles" filter.
Note that a few databases, such as Westlaw, Lexis and Bloomberg, would not require that you gain access through our proxy server. You would log into such databases directly through their websites, using your personally registered username and password (unrelated to your GULC NetID and Password). It would be best to search for content offered by Westlaw, Lexis and Bloomberg within the respective databases, rather than searching within our catalog.
Feel free to contact the Reference Desk for more assistance.
