Computers & Printing

The Law Library has three public-use kiosks located on the main level. Log on to the public computers using the password: Law.library2023. This is also attached to the computer keyboard.

Visitors have access to the web or email from the computer kiosk if the database being used has that option or they have their own web-based email system. 

There is no capability to save to a flash drive on the public computer kiosk. Follow instructions at the computer table which explains how to use cloud-based services to save materials.

There is no word processing programs available on the public computer kiosks. If you need word processing programs, consider the Pima County Public Library or the University of Arizona's Main Library

The Law Library does not have public Westlaw or LexisNexis available on the public computer kiosks. However, Nexis Uni is available for researching case law and statutes, plus other legal resources such as the legal encyclopedia American Jurisprudence and law review articles. Nexis Uni offers the Shepard's citator, allowing users to update cases and statutes. 

Please see Printing and Copying for more information.
