Congratulations graduates of Yale Law School Class of 2013! As YLS alumni, you will continue to have access to the Law Library to study or prepare for the bar exam; however your bowing privileges will end August 23, 2013 (and other campus library borrowing privileges end August 20). Beginning in the fall, your Net ID and password will expire, and you will only have access to Law Library databases from the terminals in the Library.
Your student access Westlaw, Lexis, and Bloomberg will end at various times over the summer and fall.
Westlaw: Access for the Class of 2013 ends November 30, 2013.
Lexis Advance: Access for the Class of 2013 ends July 31, 2013.
Bloomberg: Access for the Class of 2013 ends around November 20, 2013.
Even though you will no longer have access to the Law Library’s databases, as Yale Alumni you will have free access to JSTOR’s extensive collection of online scholarly materials thanks to the Association of Yale Alumni (you can read more about the service here).
The reference librarians are also available to help with your research and reference questions in person, via email, chat, or on the phone at 203-432-1606.
Congratulations and good luck!
