New Database – CEB OnLAW

The library is pleased to announce the acquisition of the new OnLAW database from California’s Continuing Education of the Bar.  OnLAW provides access to more than 125 of CEB’s California practice guides.  OnLAW’s “libraries” organize the CEB guides by practice area, namely: business law; criminal law; estate planning; family law; litigation; and real property law.

The guides are complete and up-to-date online versions of CEB’s print practice guides, most of which are also available in the library.

OnLAW is available anywhere on campus.  To access it from outside of campus, be sure to set up your browser for proxy access by following the linked instructions from Stanford University Libraries.

For help in searching the database, feel free to stop in at the reference desk or email:

New Corporate Databases from Our Friends at GSB

Courtesy of the Jackson Library at the Graduate School of Business, the entire Stanford campus now has access to two databases:

  • Conference Board — Conference Board reports on key business topics, e.g. executive compensation, corporate contributions, and board practices, etc.
  • Mergent Online — U.S. and international corporate financial histories and profiles. Formerly known as Moody’s.

Need to use these from off campus? Set up proxy access on your computer by following the instructions found here.
