Library Computer Lab
The Library Computer Lab is located across from Circulation as you enter the Library. In addition to sixteen computers, there are two Pharos printers and two Lexis printers located in the Computer Lab. The Computer Lab is reserved for the exclusive use of current Pace Law students, faculty, and staff.
A scanner is available for use behind the Reference Desk.
Six public access computers are located on the main floor (level 3) opposite the Reference Desk. You do not need to log in to these computers.
There is a 24-hour computer lab with a printer on the third floor in Gerber Glass 300. G300 is reserved for the exclusive use of current Pace Law students, faculty, and staff.
Laptop computers may be used anywhere in the Library. In order to print from your laptop you must download the print client available here. Contact Law ITS for assistance in configuring your laptop for use with the Pace wireless network. Law ITS is located in on the 3rd floor of Aloysia, 914-422-4290.
Wireless network access is available throughout the Library. Use of the wireless network is limited to Pace Law students, staff, and faculty. Alumni who want access should contact the Alumni Relations. Click here to check the availability and status of the wireless network.
Networked computers are connected to shared printers in the computer lab. Pace Law School students are credited with $30 for printing per semester (fall, spring and summer). Students must contact the Office of Student Assistance in order to add money to their printing accounts. Printing costs 6 cents per side of page. More information about printing is available here. Pace Law students have access to dedicated printers provided by Lexis that are located in the Computer Lab. There is no charge for Lexis printing if search results are sent to the dedicated printers.
Lexis, Westlaw, and Bloomberg Law
All current Pace University School of Law students are issued passwords by Lexis and Westlaw, legal research systems for comprehensive research in primary and secondary legal materials from all United States jurisdictions and some foreign jurisdictions as well. Both systems also have large databases of non-law materials. The passwords allow students to access Lexis and Westlaw from any computer with Internet access. Students can also obtain Bloomberg Law passwords directly from Bloomberg.
Use of the Law School's Lexis and Westlaw accounts is explicitly limited to the course-related research of Pace Law students enrolled currently, and full-time law faculty and staff. Pace's contracts with both Lexis and Westlaw demand prosecution of violators of the academic use clause.
The first-year legal skills program includes training in the use of Lexis, Westlaw, and Bloomberg Law. The Reference Librarians conduct training sessions in the fall and spring semesters for each skills section. Please contact Cynthia Pittson, Head of Reference Services, for more information.
Any Reference Librarian can answer questions about searching Lexis, Westlaw, and Bloomberg Law. At designated times student representatives from all three vendors are available in the Computer Lab for technical assistance. Their names and schedules are posted in the Lab and at the Circulation Desk.
