DU Main Library and Westminster Law Library provide our students, faculty, and staff with legal authority and scholarly materials from over 400 databases. Law students may access many but not all the databases from home. It depends on the symbols next to the name of the database. To access these databases, you need to use the links provided on the A-Z Database list or use the library's search platform.
If the symbol appears next to the name, it is a law school database and you can access remotely if you are a DU law student, faculty member, or staff. You need to use our proxy server. To access the proxy server, you must click on the link from our website. You should be directed to a sign-in screen that asks for your Pioneer ID and password. You will then have access to the database remotely.
Some law school databases, such as Westlaw, Lexis, and Bloomberglaw, are subscription based and require individual user accounts and passwords.
If the symbol appears next to the name, it is a DU Main Campus database and you are only able to access it from an Andersen Academic Commons computer terminal, a requirement of the license agreement. Check-in at their circulation desk for a temporary ID and password.
If the symbol appears, it is a free web resource.
Attorneys and law school alumni do not have remote access to any our licensed databases. They must be physically present at a library computer terminal.
