Access Online Resources

The Law Library provides access to three computers 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.

Printing is not available from any of the public computers in the library.  Printing and scanning are not available for microform materials (see Circulation Desk for other microform scanning options).  However, you may bring a flash drive/memory stick to download documents from those databases that permit downloading.  The Law Library does not provide flash drives.

Off-Site Access to Online Resources

Due to licensing restrictions, off-site access to online resources is only available to current University of Minnesota Twin Cities students, faculty, and staff. Note: off-site access to certain online resources is further restricted to the faculty, students and staff of the University of Minnesota Law School. If you have questions about off-site access to our online resources contact the Law Library Reference Office,, 612-625-4309.

Minnesota residents can take advantage of the Electronic Library of Minnesota for journal articles, ebooks, and more. 

Alumni of the Law School have off-site access to two online resources provided by the Law Library. University of Minnesota Alumni have additional options through the Alumni Association.
