New to Husker Law during COVID-19: Resources

Introduction

Expanded Access to Law Resources

Many publishers are providing FREE access to their resources for a limited time; many include study aids and textbooks. To avoid cluttering your inbox with unnecessary emails, the law librarians have created this LibGuide to provide a centralized location to access those new materials. We will continue to update this LibGuide as we receive notifications from publishers, so please check back frequently. If you find you have any questions about the resources and/or content, please reach out to us at lawref@unl.edu and we'll be happy to provide assistance.

Other Resources from Love Library

In addition to the law related resources we're complying here, we encourage you to consult the LibGuide Love Library has created for other resources.
