Database Access

Most Zief Law Library databases are available to current USF students, faculty and staff via authentication. Licensing agreements may limit database access for non-law students, faculty, and staff.

To connect to our databases, follow these steps:

  1. Find a link to the database you want to search. To connect successfully from off-campus, you need to use a database link that appears on the law library's A to Z database list or Gleeson Library's A to Z database list.
  2. When you click on the database link, you will be prompted to supply your myUSF login information. This is the same username and password that you use to log in to any myUSF application (campus email, Concur, course registration, etc.).

For additional information about the library’s authentication system, please visit our Open Athens page.

If you are a USF law student, law professor, or law staff member and experience problems with database access, contact the Zief research librarians via live chat.
