The University, the Law School, and the Library use 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 while in the Law Library.

Library Databases. Most library subscriptions to electronic resources are restricted to users on the UVA network and do not require an individual login. Three exceptions are Lexis, Westlaw and Bloomberg Law, which are for law student and faculty use only. Non-law patrons may use LexisNexis Academic, which is available UVA-wide. Several EBSCO databases are also available remotely to any alumni with a HoosOnline account.      

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.
