The University, the Law School, and the Library utilize many computer systems and networks and sometimes these systems require separate and unique user accounts.  Here's a guide to some of the most common ones you'll run into in the Law Library.

University Computing Account.  This is UVA's main computing account for UVA students, faculty and staff only. The computing ID is typically used with Eservices (not available from the library's public computers), Netbadge, Home Directory, and the Lawschool domain (see below).

Lawschool Domain Account.  This is used for logging into the Law School's computer network for access to the LawWeb intranet and networked printing services. Eservices login is not available on the library's public computers.

LawWeb.  LawWeb is an intranet for the exclusive use of law school faculty and students. 

Virgo Account.  Virgo is the main library system for finding and checking out books.  Alumni and Virginia residents may register at the circulation desk using their driver's license as ID.

Library Databases, Lexis & Westlaw.   Most library subscriptions to electronic resources are restricted to users on the UVA network and do not require an individual login.  Two exceptions are Lexis and Westlaw which are for law student use only.  Non-Law patrons may use LexisNexis Academic, which is available UVA-wide.

Photocopying, Printing and Scanning Account. Limited printing is available at the walk-up computer stations on the second floor in the Reference area. (Saving document files to your own flash drive or cloud service for printing elsewhere may be more convenient.) For photocopying or scanning, please visit the circulation desk on the first floor.
