The Law Library has been working with casebook publishers to obtain online access for law students who do not currently have access to their required course texts. If you are unable to access your textbook through the resources listed below, contact Connie Lenz, firstname.lastname@example.org, for assistance.
VitalSource Bookshelf: includes casebooks published by Carolina Academic Press, LexisNexis, and Wolters Kluwer, as well as NITA Case Files. To access these books, visit bookshelf.vitalsource.com and create an account using your umn.edu email address. Step-by-step instructions for creating an account are available here. Once you create an account, log in and click on the “Explore” tab in the upper left corner of the screen and search by title. Each student can download up to seven titles. Additional details about this program are available here.
Students who require access to West Academic or Foundation Press casebooks must contact West Academic at 877.888.1330 (ext.4). If you don't already have a West Academic Online Study Aids account, set up a West Academic account at https://eproducts.westacademic.com. (Please note that this is a West Academic account, which differs from a Westlaw password.)
Word of Caution: eBook texts may not be accessible to you during in-class open book exams.
