Access library resources while off-campus

We subscribe to a large number of subscription databases and journals to support research and scholarship at Brooklyn Law School. You can browse our A to Z Guide to Databases, which lists our major databases organized by subject area or alphabetically. You may also use OneSearch for articles and books, or our SARA Catalog for books, journals, and databases. To find out whether we have a specific e-journal or database, use our Find a Source page.
