West Academic is providing law students with temporary free access to its online study aids collection. This includes access to Nutshells, Gilbert Law Summaries, Sum and Substance Audio, and more.
Students will need to create a West Academic account. According to the instructions that were given to us by West academic, to create an account:
Once your account is properly set-up, you can log-in independently from the Law School’s network.
Our Lexis Digital Library collection contains access to the Mastering, Understanding, and Q & A series. We also have temporary access to a number of Lexis and Carolina Academic Press textbooks via this platform.
You can access the Lexis OverDrive platform from the DCLI's website (see the link for "Study Aids on Lexis OverDrive.") You will need the 16-digit code on the front of your Duquesne I.D. card to login to this service.
Please remember that the DCLI also offers access to CALI and Quimbee. More information is available on the DCLI’s website.
If you have any questions concerning our study aids, please contact Julie Tedjeske, Electronic Resources and Instructional Services Librarian (email@example.com).
Several publishers are providing complimentary access to eBook versions of their casebooks and other materials due to the COVID19 outbreak. This is the most recent information that we could locate on such access.
Lexis is providing complimentary access to Carolina Academic Press casebooks in Overdrive for the remained of the semester. Overdrive is the same platform where you can find ebook versions of the Understanding, Mastering, and Questions & Answers study aids.
To access, login to: https://law-duq.libguides.com/overdrive using your DU ID number (the long 16 digit number on the front of your Duquesne University identification card.) You will find all 483 newly-available titles under the “Study Aid” and “Recently Added” collections on the Browse Library tab.
In partnership with VitalSource, Wolters Kluwer is providing free digital e-textbooks for students who lost access to their purchased book or library resources due to a shift from in-person to online classes. It may take 24-48 hours for the books to be added, but they will be added.
To get started, students should visit bookshelf.vitalsource.com and log-in or create a Bookshelf account with their institution-provided email address. Once students create an account with an institution-provided email address, they should log in and click on the “Explore” tab in the upper left corner of the screen. This tab provides access to the freely available e-textbooks.
Please note that at this time, student downloads are limited to 7 titles and trial access will expire on Monday, May 25, 2020.
West Academic is providing complimentary access to students who do not have access to their print textbook. This offer only applies to required materials.
This is a new service. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you run into problems and we will try to troubleshoot for you. You should not be required to enter a credit card.
