Welcome from the Director Print Page

Message from the Director

Welcome to the New England Law | Boston Law Library

Along with the rest of the library staff, I look forward to working with you over this coming academic year and throughout your law school career, providing you with the services and resources you need.

As the information and technology center of the law school, we are open seven days a week.   Experienced Reference Librarians are available to answer your questions in person, by phone, email and chat.  The library’s three levels offer a variety of individual and group study spaces.  Wireless access is available throughout along with computer stations, printers, scanners and laptops.  In addition to a comprehensive collection of over 300,000 volumes, the library has access to numerous databases and extensive electronic content.  Whatever resource you need -- we can usually get.

Please let me know if you have questions or suggestions about library services and have a great year!


Anne Acton

Director of the Law Library

When do I get my Westlaw, Lexis, and Bloomberg passwords?

What do I do once I receive my passwords?

You must register your password immediately.  At Orientation, library staff will show you how to create your own easy-to-remember username and password. For information on how to register, click on the tab at the top of the screen that says "Westlaw, Lexis, Bloomberg Information."
