Local Library Databases

Many people are unaware that they probably have access to a number of subscription databases through their local public library, many of them accessible from home.

For instance, databases available from the NYPL are here. Anyone who lives, works, attend school, or owns property in New York State is eligible for a free NYPL card. And databases available from Nassau County's public libraries are listed here.

Although many of these offerings will overlap with the online resources provided by the Deane Law Library, and Axinn Library, chances are that you will not be in school forever, and you probably still know people who are not law students.

(Databases provided by public libraries are usually accessible under licenses specifying that they cannot be used for commercial purposes.)
