Effective Monday, November 1, 2021, Cheetah was rebranded as VitalLaw. With this rebranding, VitalLaw has a new domain: my.vitallaw.com.
What does it mean to us?
You can still use your Cheetah credentials to log in to VitalLaw.
All the materials of Cheetah are available on the new VitalLaw platform.
While the name and URL address for the site is changing, the navigation will still be familiar and all links, search history, and favorites will remain intact.
All previously saved and bookmarked links will work as expected and be routed appropriately to my.vitallaw.com. However, we recommend you to update all previously saved and bookmarked links that start with wkcheetah.com, because they will need to be replaced by 10/29/2022 as they will stop working at that time.
If you have any questions, please contact the Electronic & Digital Services Librarian, Dajiang Nie, at Dajiang.firstname.lastname@example.org.
