Remote Access to E-Resources


Faculty who are working at home or traveling may access many of the library’s electronic resources remotely:

  • The Wise Law Library’s catalog, LawPAC, is available to the public at: http://lawpac.colorado.edu . The catalog and home page include links to numerous free Internet resources.
  • Subscription databases and other fee-based electronic resources linked from http://lawpac.colorado.edu are accessible to faculty who launch CU VPN (Virtual Private Network) free software on their computers and log on to campus servers with a CU identikey account. CU VPN software must be running in the background prior to accessing any links to law library databases or other subscription resources.
  • See VPN FAQ  for more information on remote access to library resources and a link to the CU VPN software download page.

Faculty who register for BNA e-mail alerts must launch CU VPN before clicking on the links in BNA e-mails outside of the Wolf Law Building. If CU VPN runs too slowly from a home or travel computer, please contact Jane Thompson for a direct BNA logon.
