Do non-law students have access to electronic resources?

Some databases can be used by any member of the University community, while others are restricted to Penn Law students and faculty, or to people searching them from a Biddle Library terminal.

Lexis Advance, WestlawNext, and Bloomberg Law are only available to Penn Law faculty and students. 

Check out Biddle's A-Z list of electronic resources.  Note that there is an icon key:

 Access limited to Penn Law affiliates.

Access for the entire Penn community. Non-law affiliates should click the shield to log in with your PennKey.

If you have additional questions about electronic resource access, contact Nancy Bellafonte, Biddle's Serials/Electronic Resources Librarian. 

If you have questions about Lexis, Westlaw, or Bloomberg access, contact Mariah Ford
