Paul L. Boley Law Library

Free Academic & Legal Resources at Your Public Library

September 27, 2017

Besides public law libraries, your local public library is a great resource for locating legal and academic resources. Since alums can no longer access Boley’s research databases from off campus, this is especially useful to them, but the entire Lewis & Clark law school community can benefit from getting a library card!

What databases are available? It depends on the library. The list of Portland-area libraries below highlights just a few of the databases you can access with your public library card. Visit each library’s website for a complete listing.
