How do I get remote access to the library databases and online journals when I'm not on campus? What is LawLibLoquitor?


Do you often access the Thurgood Marshall Law Library's extensive collection of licensed databases and online journals while off-campus? If the answer is yes, the Maryland Carey Law community of students, faculty, and staff can use any of the following resources to authenticate.

  1. Access our proxy authenticated links in the A-Z Databases list on the homepage of the Law Library. While off-campus, you will be prompted to log in with your UMID and password.
  2. Google Scholar. The Maryland Carey Law community can use Google Scholar to access the full text of articles in select subscription databases at the Thurgood Marshall Law Library such as journals from HeinOnline and JSTOR. To show library links for full-text access to select Thurgood Marshall Law Library collections, update your Google Scholar settings:
  1. Go to Google Scholar and click the three horizontal bars in the corner to view the menu. 
  2. Select Scholar Settings (cog icon). 
  3. Select Library Links and search for University of Maryland School of Law - Find It @ TMLL, click the check box, then save.
  4. The Find It @ TMLL link will now appear next to select articles in your search results. Select Find It @ TMLL to log in and access the full text of the article.

3. Perhaps the most efficient option is to install the Library's proxy bookmarklet, the LawLibLoquitor. Use LawLibLoquitor to connect to the Law Library's subscription-based online resources off-campus. Simply add a LawLibLoquitor button to your browser's bookmark toolbar to streamline off-campus authentication. Once you have installed the LawLibLoquitor, whenever you are on a site that requires licensed access:

  • click on the LawLibLoquitor link in your bookmarks toolbar;
  • enter your UMID and password; and
  • you can now view the resource through the Library's subscription.

NOTE: The LawLibLoquitor proxy bookmarklet works for most, but not all Library subscriptions. For more information, follow the instructions in our guide to LawLibLoquitor.

Please email for assistance or just ask the library by chat.
