Complimentary Access to the Bluebook Online

If you do not have access to a Bluebook, then you may email librarian John Scherrer to obtain an access key that will provide you complimentary access to the Bluebook Online for 60 days, courtesy of the Bluebook Team.


Per the Bluebook Team, here are instructions for redeeming a key to set up a new subscription:

  • To redeem this key (and set up an account), enter it at where it says "Bluebook Key Redemption" and follow the on-screen instructions to set up a username (unique and active email address) and password. You only use the key once. From that point forward, you access your account with your username and password.

  • The subscription is active 60 days from the date you redeem this key on the website.

  • After you set up your account you might need to log out and then log back in again to view site contents.

  • If a user previously had a Bluebook subscription that expired, it is easiest to set up a new account with a different email address. To extend an existing account, go to My Account at the top of the page, Extend My Subscription, select the radio button for My Account Renewal/Extension and enter the key where it says Redeem Your Bluebook Key and click Go.

Warm regards, 

The Bluebook Team
