Effective Monday, March 23, the Jacob Burns Law Library will be closed to help flatten the COVID-19 infection curve.
View the two guides below for information during this period.
GW Law students, faculty, and staff can use our proxy server for off-campus access to most of the databases to which the Burns Law Library subscribes. The URLs for our IP-authenticated databases in the Law Library's online guides and catalogs are already configured to use the GW Law proxy server.
The Burns Law Library proxy server authenticates users based on their GW Law School username (e.g. email@example.com) and password. When you click on a link that is configured to use our proxy server, you'll get one of the following results:
In the Burns Library's guides and catalogs, we've modified the URLs so they will work with the proxy server, but If you subscribe to online legal newsletters from National Law Journal or Law360, the links in those newsletters won't be formatted to work with our proxy server: If you use Chrome as your browser in Windows or Mac OS/X, you can add an extension that will make it easy to access those links while off-campus.
