In the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, Thomson Reuters is here to continue to support you and your patrons. Your library has been selected to be part of a pilot to simplify the process of how your patrons receive complimentary remote access to Westlaw. The goal is to provide on-demand access to your patrons and reduce the library staff involvement with the registration process.
Your patrons can call 1-800-328-4880, enter extension 855597 and a Customer Service agent will create a user name and password that will provide 20 hours of access to Westlaw and Practical Law over 14 days. This line is open from 7am-7pm CT to reflect the available times most libraries are open to patrons.
Patrons may sign up for a 14 day free trial of CEB’s newest research product, Practitioner™, at ceb.com or by calling CEB Customer Service at 800-232-3444 M-F, 8am – 5pm. Practitioner provides access to over 140 of CEB’s practice guides as well as helpful workflows, how-to guides, checklists and strategic analysis.
