DU Licensed Databases – Certificate Error Messages

When accessing certain electronic databases to which DU subscribes, students may encounter warning messages concerning the website’s certificate.  This is a known issue, but is easy to fix.  One of the Anderson Academic Commons librarians, Chris Brown, has prepared a guide to show students how to address this problem.

Questions?  Need help?  Always feel free to speak to one of your friendly DU Law Librarians or email us at

Welcome (back) to Hearsay!

After a hiatus of several years, the Westminster Law Library has revived its blog, Hearsay.  We’ll be using this space to highlight databases, websites, apps and other technology and (yes!) print materials that we think are valuable for legal and other types of research. We’ll also suggest research tips and post news and announcements about research classes and other library events.  Check Hearsay regularly from the link on the library’s website (

For now, though, we’d like to say “Welcome” to our first-year and other new students, and “Welcome Back” to our returning students.  We hope you had a great summer and are refreshed and ready for the school year.  We’re looking forward to seeing you in the library, chatting with you on our chat service and reading your emails (!
