As a law student who likes audio study aids, I have found the West Academic Library Mobile App to be the most convenient way to listen to them anytime on my phone for free using the UNC Law Library's West Study Aids subscription. The mobile app can also be used to access all of the print e-book study aids available via West Study Aids. While you could access the same content via your device's web browser, the mobile app has some advantages that will probably make it worth your time to download and set it up:
  • It saves the content on your device so you don't need to use a data connection whenever you want to listen or read.
  • It allows faster access to just your selected list of study aids.
  • It saves your place in a book so you can come back to it later.
How to Access and Use the App

While you don't generally need to have an individual account set up to use West Study Aids at Carolina Law, you do need one to use the app.
  1. To get started, go to West Study Aids using this link and click "Create an Account" (or "Sign in" if you already have one). 
  2. Navigate to your favorite study aid and check the box for "Available Offline". You can select up to 30 titles for download.
  3. Download the mobile app: Visit the Apple App Store or Google Play, search for "West Academic Library", and install the app.
  4. Sign in to the mobile app using the credentials you set up in step 1, and the book you selected in step 2 will be on your bookshelf. Click on it to download it to your device.
If you use the app's highlighting or notes features for e-books, those should be available on both your mobile device or your computer whenever you are signed in.

Happy studying!
