COVID-19: Open and Free Access Materials for Legal Research

Due the current closures of libraries, researchers may be experiencing difficulties accessing the legal materials they need. Many subscription databases are still available to IALS Library members from the Electronic Law Library. To supplement the provision of subscription databases, the IALS librarians have created a new guide to open access and free legal materials on the web.

To support researchers during COVID-19, JSTOR have expanded their free read-online access to 100 articles per month through December 31, 2020.
