The Law Library continues to provide access to electronic books on a variety of different platforms. These books can be found in the library catalogue and accessed remotely using your Passport York user ID and password.
However, some publishers are temporarily providing extended access to their electronic materials during the duration of the COVID-19 emergencies. Please note that this is temporary access and each publisher provides their own instructions and guidelines. The following list will help you navigate the kind of access available to you.
Feel free to contact a Reference Librarian if you need further assistance.
Changes are coming to the library catalogue on December 10, 2019. The new catalogue will feature changes that will allow users to search library databases and electronic resources simultaneously across 13 Ontario university libraries.
The appearance of the Law Library Databases list has changed but the list is still the same. https://researchguides.library.yorku.ca/az.php?s=127175
The A – Z list is an alphabetical listing of all legal electronic resources. The new look gives you direct access to information about content, description and scope of each resource as you scroll down the list. Another feature is the distinct symbol that tells you when a resource is Open Accessand New.
The list also gives you a search option which links to other electronic resources available in the York University Libraries.
Please contact a Reference Librarian if you need any assistance.
