Access to Library Resources During Campus Closure

While the UIC John Marshall Law School campus is closed, most law library resources continue to be available remotely. To access article databases or other specialized databases, use the links on the library website to log in with your JMLS username and password. You can continue to access Lexis, Westlaw, Bloomberg Law, and CALI using the individual log-in you set up with those services.

Additionally, law librarians will continue to be available for remote consultation. You can reach us at library@jmls.edu, and we can host one-on-one web conferences as needed.

If you have materials checked out from the law library, do not worry! We have extended the due date on materials through May 31, and we will extend it further if needed.

Please see this guide for a collection of links and more information. If you have questions about specific resources or any other research concerns, contact library@jmls.edu.

Information About the UIC Library and JMLS

A benefit of UIC’s acquisition of John Marshall is access to UIC library resources. In addition to being able to check out materials from UIC libraries, JMLS students, faculty, and staff can access UIC databases and journals. Note that you will need your NetID to access these.

JMLS users also now have access to I-Share. I-Share allows you to search for and request materials that we don’t have at JMLS from participating libraries. Think of it as an expedited interlibrary loan program.

If you have questions about these or any other library-related issues, please reach out to library@jmls.edu.

8th Floor Closed for Construction, 9th Floor Now Ultra Quiet Floor

As you’ve likely heard by now, the library’s 8th floor will be closed for the 2018-2019 academic year. Over the course of the next year, it will be converted to JMLS’s Collaboration Commons, which will feature multiple study rooms and other spaces for students to work together. If you previously used the 8th floor as the ultra quiet floor, please make your way to the 9th floor. We have designated it the ultra quiet floor, and there you will find a number of the study carrels that used to be on the 8th floor.
