New Safe Return - Stage 1 - Law Library Access, Hours, Services

We are here for you

Welcome back! The Law Library has been preparing all summer to welcome back students, faculty, and staff to campus, whether virtually or in person. We are ready to support your learning, teaching, and research with a full array of remote services and online resources while the we ramp-up to in-person classes. We are here for you!

Access

Keeping everyone safe is our top priority. Therefore, the Daniel F. Cracchiolo Law Library is open to law library staff only during Stage 1.

Library staff are working in the library Monday - Friday, 8am - 5pm, to ensure you have what you need for class, research, and teaching. We can scan print materials, page and deliver books, provide interlibrary loans, and consult on your research projects.

Students experiencing challenges and needing to request an exception to this restriction -- or any other aspect of the College's New Safe Return Plan -- should initiate a discussion with Dean Jordan-Curtis

Scan-on-Demand

Copyright laws and fair use exceptions allow us to scan and send to an individual (not post on D2L) a chapter or section of a book, an article, and more. We aim to provide scans of print materials within 1-2 business days.

You can request scans by contacting AskCirculation.  Please include course name, course number, book title, edition, author, and pages/chapter needed.  

If your request is too extensive, we will scan what we are able, beginning with the first page of your request.

Paging and Delivering Books

If you need a circulating book in the library collection, please submit a request by contacting AskCirculation. Please include full title, author, edition, and year.

You will receive an email when your book is ready for retrieval. To pick up the book, please call the circulation desk when you arrive and we will hand the book to you at the door. The circulation desk can be reached by phone at (520) 626-8023Pick-up is Monday - Friday, 10am - 2pm.

Non-circulating materials, such as course reserves and special collections, cannot be checked-out during Stage 1, but we may be able to scan and send items to you. Just ask us!

Note to Faculty: Our default is to leave a book you request in your faculty mailbox as we've always done. If you prefer to pick up and check-out in the lobby, as described above, we are happy to leave for you there. 

Interlibrary Loan

We use interlibrary loan (ILL) for materials you request which are not owned locally.

Be sure to request ILL materials directly from the Law Library rather than using the links embedded within the catalog records.

To request a book, please contact the Circulation Desk at LAW-LibraryILL@email.arizona.edu or you may use the book request form. Please include full title, author, edition, and year in your request.

Returning Materials

You can return your books Monday - Friday, 9am - 3pm by calling the Circulation desk at 626-8023.  We will meet you at the door to accept your book.
