We are here for you
Welcome back! We are starting the Spring 2021 semester in Stage 1. The Law Library is 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!
Keeping everyone safe is our top priority. Therefore, the Daniel F. Cracchiolo Law Library is open to law library staff only during Stage 1.
Please note: The law library will be closed to all students, including those on the library access exceptions list, on February 23rd and February 24th to accommodate those taking the bar exam.
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.
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) 626-8023. Pick-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.
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-ILL@law-arizona.libanswers.com or you may use the book request form. Please include full title, author, edition, and year in your request.
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.
The Law Librarians and the Law Library Fellows are on hand daily to answer your questions, help you find what you need, and consult on research questions. Reference and research support is available Monday - Thursday, 10am - 8pm. Friday 10am - 3pm via email and video conference (by appointment).
The librarians created a variety of topical research guides to help you get started on your research.
Students are encouraged to seek research support at any time in the research lifecycle by writing to AskLawRef.
Faculty and staff can request research assistance or inquire about any of the library's services by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org , or by completing a short research request form, or by contacting Maureen Garmon directly.
