Remote Access to Casebooks and Texts, Summer 2020

Arrangements giving students free remote access to casebooks and texts, offered by publishers during the Spring Semester, are expiring, or have expired. This includes texts accessed online through the LexisNexis Digital Library, VitalSource, and West Academic.

Students enrolled in Summer Semester courses will not have free online access to required texts. Please keep in mind that the Mendik Library will remain closed during the Summer Semester, and that you will not be able to borrow physical copies of your course reserve items.

Summer Semester students are encouraged to purchase their required texts through the NYLS online bookstore. Several publishers offer ebook versions of texts to students who have purchased or rented print copies. These offers vary from publisher to publisher. Please take careful note of details when you purchase the books.

During the summer the publishers of The Bluebook will continue to offer online access, at no cost, to members of the NYLS community who do not have access to a print copy. If you wish to take advantage of this offer, please email the Library at Your request must come from a NYLS email address.
