I have access to what? Learn what Social Law has to offer you!

Posted: Sep 02, 2021
I have access to what? We hear that sometimes. The Social Law Library offers so many online resources that it’s easy to lose track of them. While you may know that you have access to HeinOnline and Fastcase, do you know which specific resources you can find in them, or how best to mine the databases for useful material? For example, members enjoy access to current and past editions of regional newspapers including the Boston Globe, current and historical law reviews and bar journals, as well as non-legal periodicals and magazines. Don’t forget access to primary law for all 50 States and Federal. And of course, members with circulation privileges have instant access to over 2,500 eBooks. All of that and so much more is available online at Social Law!

This one hour video of Social Law’s resources is a great introduction to the Library’s resources but it does not include everything the Library has to offer. If you have any specific questions or want to hear more generally about certain topics, please reach out to the Reference Department at 

Please Note: This video was recorded in 2020. For updated information on visiting the Library and current COVID protocols click here.

We are also happy to schedule individual trainings for members!
