Five Resources Available at the Leigh H. Taylor Law Library

Help us, help you make the most of the resources available on campus. To get you navigating around our Leigh H. Taylor Law Library like a pro,  we recruited the help of the Associate Director for Library Services and Adjunct Professor, Margaret Hall.


Keep these five resources on your radar: 

#1. Digital Study Guides

The digital versions of the Understanding and Questions & Answers series are now available to all students. Log in here with your Southwestern email address and password to check out titles of interest. Our custom LexisNexis version of OverDrive allows semester-long loans and unlimited simultaneous users within our community.  We have posted download guides for these apps, as well as a Getting Started Guide for the digital library on the portal.


#2. DVD & Fiction Collections

See the full list of available DVDs in our collection here


#3. Standing Desks & Book Stands



#4. The New York Times

Southwestern students, faculty, and staff can create an account for full access to the New York Times electronic edition. Register from any campus computer, using a Southwestern e-mail address. After initial registration, access the NY Times from anywhere. Registrations must be renewed annually on or after the account expiration date.


#5. Your Library Staff
