How We Can Help You

Reference Librarians are in the library Monday - Friday and Sunday during the regular academic semester. Simply stop by the main desk, call us, email us, or send us a chat and ask for assistance. Reference librarians and our library staff can help you find material in the library; show you how to locate information in specific print materials or in online databases

Need more in-depth assistance? Set up a Research Consultation with one of our reference librarians. During your consultation, we can help you locate and use relevant resources; assist you in narrowing your research topic; and guide you in developing a research strategy for tackling any assignment.


Library2Go is a free book and article retrieval service. Simply request a book from the library’s collection and it will be retrieved and checked out to you. Need a book chapter or an article from a print journal? We will scan it and email it to you.

How to Request

To request a book or scan, log into your library account through the library catalog. Locate the item you want, and then click “Request a Scan” or “Request a Physical Copy” and fill out the form. For more information: How to Place a Request Through the Library Catalog

How to Pick Up a Book

You will receive an email notification when your items are ready for pick up. Book pickup is near the front door of the library. Books are arranged in alphabetical order by borrower last name.

All requests are subject to the University Library's fair use and copyright policies, as well as its availability on our shelves.

If you are a journal member, please submit all requests through the journal’s library-designated contact person.

Exam Archive

The Law Library maintains an Exam Archive for the benefit of the Law School community. Exams in this archive are digitized versions of printed exams collected in accordance with the faculty handbook and placed on reserve in the library. Inclusion of an exam in the digital archive is at the discretion of the instructor. Please contact your professor to inquire about the availability of previous exams not posted.
