To support the research efforts and course-related activities of the UConn Law School community, the Law Library announces a new on-demand service called Library2Go. This service is now available to currently enrolled law students, law faculty, and staff.
Requests for available items should be submitted through the library’s catalog. Faculty members may continue to use the FacServ service. Currently, we are unable to accept requests by phone or in person.
We are thrilled to offer these brand-new frontline services. Please do not hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions and feedback.
Physical Book Paging is a free pick-up service, which enables you to request many of the books from the law library’s physical collection.
- Checked-out items are not eligible, but you may be able to request them through Interlibrary Loan.
- Loan periods have been extended.
- We will keep your requested books on the booktruck for 14 days.
- We cannot accommodate home or office delivery at this time. If this is an issue, please contact our Reference Department for assistance.
- We will notify you if any of your requested items cannot be supplied, and where possible, we will work with you to find alternatives.
- Our staff will observe proper health and safety guidelines while handling the items you request.
How to Pick up a Book
- You will receive an email notification when your items are ready for pick up.
- Book pickup is in the entry of the library building and requires UConn ID access only. If you do not have a UConn ID, contact the OneCard Office directly to check your status and see if you need to upload a photo. ID cards will be mailed to your home address.
- Face coverings are required to enter the building and while on campus.
- Books are arranged in alphabetical order by borrower last name. Please follow all health and safety guidelines when picking up books.
- University parking passes are required to park on campus and free street parking is available.
Checked-out items owned by the UConn Law Library should be returned to the book drop located at the main entrance, or mailed to the following address:
Thomas J. Meskill Law Library
39 Elizabeth Street
Hartford, CT 06105
Digital Paging is a free, electronic document delivery service, which enables currently enrolled law students, faculty, and staff to request scans of print materials from the law library’s collection. All requests are subject to the University Library's fair use and copyright policies, as well as its availability on our shelves. Once the Law Library determines that the request meets fair use and copyright policies, your requests will be processed.
The Law Library will not be able to accommodate rush service requests at this time. If an item is unavailable or checked out, the Law Library may be able to request the materials on your behalf via Interlibary Loan. The Law Library will fulfill up to 5 scan requests per week per user.
One scan request can include multiple sections in one book, as long as the number of pages falls under the University's fair use and copyright policies. For example, a patron may request pp.10-20 and 25-30 in a study aid, and this would qualify as one scan request. Requests for items available in the UConn Law Library are fulfilled within 5 business days.
Please remember that other alternatives may be available for the resources you need. For assistance with your research questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to our Reference librarians at email@example.com or by clicking “Ask a Law Librarian."
If you are a journal member, please submit all requests through the journal’s library-designated contact person. The library-designated contact person is also the student who coordinates Interlibrary Loan requests. Please check with your journal editor for the appropriate procedure. Further detailed instructions are posted on the library’s Cite-Checking Guide. If you are still unsure how to proceed, contact Tanya Johnson before submitting requests.
