AWR TIP: The" Key" to Library Databases

by Alison Ewing 20. February 2013 15:23

Tried Googling HeinOnline or ProQuest and can’t get in? Want to search FastCase but don’t have the password it requests?

The BEST way to access those and all the other fabulous library databases for your AWR paper is to go to the Library’s website  and click on the drop down menu below Library Databases.

When you go through the library’s website and are on campus you won’t have to enter a username and  password (unless it’s a database like Lexis or Westlaw where you have been issued an individual password, those databases have an * in the list). If you are off campus, you will be asked for your full name (Joe Smith) and library barcode number (the long number on the back of your library card below the barcode).
