Many proprietary research systems and databases are available for use by law faculty and those law students who have been trained on the systems, including Westlaw, LexisNexis, and Bloomberg Law. All research must be related to law school work. Questions concerning training should be directed to the library reference staff.
College of Law faculty and law students have access to proprietary systems whether they are in the building or at a remote location. However, users may only direct printouts to LexisNexis printers located in the Law Library or the College of Law; printouts may not be re-routed to a vendor printer located at another law school or location.
The Law Library has one CD-ROM workstation located in Special Services (Room 130) on Level 1 and is capable of accessing various databases and other CD-ROM items published by the United States Government Printing Office and received by this library through the Federal Depository Library Program.
The library acquires some treatises on CD-ROM as well as in print. These CDs are shelved in Special Services (Room 130).
