Subscription Databases at the Law Library
In addition to Bloomberg Law, Lexis-Nexis, and Westlaw, the Law Library subscribes to a number of licensed electronic legal resource databases. A complete list of these databases is available on our Law Library Electronic Resources A-Z page. Faculty can access these resources through the Loyola network, or remotely through proxy access. Please contact Joe Mitzenmacher at 312-915-6844, email@example.com, with any questions concerning access to our licensed databases.

Popular Law Library Resources
Below are links to some of the Library's most popular electrronic resources
Bloomberg Law is a full-service legal research service that provides access to U.S. federal and state primary law, Bloomberg BNA commentary and analysis, news, company information, dockets, and more. Current Law School students and faculty are assigned individual passwords which permit full access to the site's content year-round (including during the summer months) and for six months after graduation, with no academic use restrictions.
CALI (Computer Assisted Legal Instruction) is a collection of interactive lessons authored by law professors and librarians. Over 1,000 lessons, covering more than 40 different legal subject areas, are included. To use CALI, you must obtain our Law School's "authorization code" from Joe Mitzenmacher, Reference and Electronic Services Librarian (firstname.lastname@example.org or x5-6844). Follow the "Not a registered user yet?" link on the CALI website, and use our authorization code to register for your own CALI username and password.
CCH Cheetah (formerly intelliconnect)
Wolters Kluwer's Cheetah platform is a research system containing many specialized CCH loose-leaf titles relevant to business and securities research. Federal and state securities, tax, banking, antitrust and trade regulation, government contracts, intellectual property, transportation, and products liability and safety are among the topics covered. Cheetah has fully replaced the IntelliConnect platform as of January 1, 2019.
HeinOnline is a searchable full-text, image-based collection of retrospective legal materials divided into distinct "libraries," which include the Law Journal Library, the Federal Register Library, the Legal Classics Library, and more. Documents can be viewed as high quality scanned images of the original print pages, and can be printed or downloaded and saved as PDF files.
Westlaw is a comprehensive legal research system consisting of innumerable legal and business-related databases, which are fully searchable. Primary and secondary materials, including case law, statutes, administrative materials, treatises and more are included. Consult the online directory for a complete list of holdings. Current Law School students and faculty are assigned individual passwords for legal research for educational purposes only.
WorldCat, a database within the OCLC FirstSearch collection of research databases, is a catalog of library holdings in libraries around the world. It contains millions of records and is an excellent source for identifying books, articles and other materials that you would like to request through interlibrary loan.
