Remote login

I was recently surprised to learn that several very knowledgeable people in the law building were unaware how easy it is to access our electronic resources from off campus. You don’t need VPN or any special hardware: all you need is access to the internet and your UM NetID username and password (the same credentials that you use to login to Cyberbear).

Here’s how it works. Start from the Law Library website:

library homepage

Click on Law Library Databases:


law library databases

Click on any of the starred databases. If you are on campus when you click on one of the starred databases, you will be taken directly to the resource and you may begin using it immediately. If you are off campus, you will be routed to the Remote Login Page:


remote login page

From here all you have to do is login with your net ID and password. Once you are logged in with your net ID, you will be routed to the resource originally selected.

Using your net ID to login remotely not only makes all of your Law Library favorite databases available, it also works with the Mansfield Library’s A-Z list of databases. So JSTOR, LegalTrac, and Lexis Academic just to name a few, are also available.

More details on the remote login process can be found here:
