Licensed Databases

The library licenses resources from hundreds of providers.  The majority of these resources may be accessed locally or remotely by using the customized links on library web pages and authenticating using your BU login name and Kerberos password.

An alphabetical list of databases and subject guides to electronic resources provide access to products licensed by the law school.  For non-legal materials, the University library maintains a similar alphabetical list of databases at their website.   Subject access to materials in non-law academic disciplines is best accomplished using BU library research guides.

BU Law Library Search

The Law School's discovery tool  may be used to identify materials in the law library collection and at other campus libraries. 

E-Journals

The University licenses thousands of online journals, many in PDF format.  Most e-journals may be accessed locally and remotely using your BU login name and Kerberos password.

CALI Lessons

As a member of the Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction, the library offers the complete CALI library of research exercises to complement classroom instruction.  Please contact the reference desk for the faculty authorization code.

Pappas Law Library Research Guides

The legal information librarians have compiled online guides for topical legal research. For a complete listing see research guides.
