The Burns Law Library proxy server authenticates users based on their GW Law School username (e.g. and password.  When you click on a link that is configured to use our proxy server, you'll get one of the following results:

  • If you are already logged into your GW Law account (e.g. you are checking your email through the Gmail web interface), you will be automatically passed through to your requested database.

  • If you are not logged into your GW Law account, you will see a Google login screen.  Enter your GW Law ID, and when prompted, enter your password.  The proxy server will then authenticate you and pass you through to your requested database.

See our Guide to Using Online Resources for directions on how to enable your browser for proxy service.

If you still experience problems with accessing the databases off-campus, email for assistance.
