Lexis and Westlaw Access for Summer 2019

Will you still have Lexis and Westlaw access over the summer? Yes!

For continuing students, especially the 1Ls who will be doing externships this summer, you will keep your Lexis and Westlaw access without having to do anything. (In prior years, you had to fill out various online forms.) However, Westlaw use is still limited to "educational" work, such as working at non-profit externships, clerking, taking a summer class, or working for a professor or law review.

For graduating students, both Lexis and Westlaw offer extended access through the end of the year (November for Westlaw and December for Lexis). Lexis automatically does so; Westlaw requires graduates to fill out a form after they log in to the service (look for the "Grad Elite" program information).

If you need assistance with either or both of the services, stop by the Circulation/Reserve Desk in the Library.

Summer 2019 Hours

The Library will switch to summer hours beginning on Monday, May 6.

The Library will be open to the public Monday through Friday, 9 am to 4 pm.

Our Class of 2019 graduates and our continuing students will have card access hours Monday through Friday, 8 am to 10 pm; Saturday, 9 am to 6 pm; and Sunday, 9 am to 6 pm. Please be aware that we will be upgrading our card access system this summer, so if we have to change access procedures, we'll hang signs in the Library.

We will be completely closed (with no card access) beginning at 5 pm on Friday, May 3, through Sunday, May 5, for Commencement weekend. We will also be completely closed (with no card access) on Memorial Day (Monday, May 27), and Independence Day (Thursday, July 4).

(Edited on June 10 to change Saturday and Sunday card access hours.)
