Remote access to electronic resources at the Thurgood Marshall Law Library is limited to University of Maryland School of Law faculty, students and staff. UM Law faculty, students, and staff may access e-resources on campus from any computer and off campus with a myUMB login. If you are not a current member of the UM Law faculty, staff, or student body, you are welcome to visit the library to use our e-resources on site.
The myUMB login is the same login that is used for the campus portal and for signing onto the law school's wireless network. It is not the same as the login for Blackboard, e-mail, or other campus or law school systems.
For your username you may use any of the following:
If you have never logged onto the myUMB portal or the Law school wireless network, you may not have set up a myUMB password yet. Set up your password for the first time.
If you have forgotten your password, get help here: Forgot myUMB Password.
If you need additional assistance, please contact the library at firstname.lastname@example.org or 410-706-6502.
We are gradually working to reduce the number of different passwords needed for campus systems, and this change is a step in that direction. We know that this change may be inconvenient at first, especially for those who do not frequently use the myUMB portal or the wireless network. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Many of TMLL's electronic resource licenses restrict off-campus use to University of Maryland School of Law faculty, students and staff. While in the Law School building, your computer's IP address is recognized so you don't need to login. Off campus, however, TMLL uses a login to validate whether you are a current student, faculty or staff of UM Law.
A few of the library's online resources are restricted to users affiliated with the law school. Either on campus or off, you must login so that TMLL can verify that you are a member of the law school community.
Some of TMLL's e-resources are accessed only through a login supplied by the vendor. TMLL must verify that you are a member of the law school community before it can provide you with login information.
If you get an error message, please send an e-mail to email@example.com. Describe the steps you took leading up the error, and if possible cut and paste the text of the error message into the e-mail. The more details you can provide, the better our ability to troubleshoot will be.
Your workplace may have a firewall and/or proxy server that is blocking your access. Please consult with the IT staff at your workplace to address the problem.
