Open, Free, and Low-Cost Course Materials

Introduction

In addition to, or instead of, assigning a textbook in a course, you may want to direct your students to read additional cases, statutes, or articles. The Law Library and the University Library provide access to an array of resources, and you can easily embed links to these resources in iCollege, TWEN, or Lexis Classroom. Guides to creating links in some of our most-used databases are below. If you need help creating a link to a particular resource, or in determining if the library has access to a resource, we can help!

Linking to Lexis

Lexis allows you to directly link to the vast majority of its resources. To get a link that you can use in your course materials, click on the "Actions" link next to the title of the item, then the "Link to this page" option. 

 

Linking to Westlaw

Westlaw also allows you to directly link to many of its resources. To get a link to a case, article, or other document, first navigate to the document. On the document screen, select the link icon on the right side of the screen, then select the "Copy Link" option.

 

Linking to HeinOnline

 

HeinOnline contains a wide variety of content, including historical codes, statutes, law review, and bar journal articles. All resources in HeinOnline are available in PDF format. To link to a document in HeinOnline, navigate to the document and select the "link" icon directly above the document. Select the link designated for "Off-Campus/Remote Access."
