Library Policies for Visitors

Although the primary mission of the Daniel F. Cracchiolo Law Library is to support the curricular, scholarship, and research needs of the James E. Rogers College of Law’s students and faculty, the library also provides access to legal materials to members of the general public. 

All users are required to abide by the library's policies and may be requested to formally sign in upon arrival. Visit our directions page for information about the library's location.

Legal Research Guides

The librarians at the College of Law have prepared useful legal research guides to assist our visitors with legal research. Before you begin your research, take a look at our legal research guides page, our LibGuides page, as well as our list of free electronic resources.

Reference Services

Members of the local bar are welcome to use the law library and reference services for their legal research needs during regular library hours.

Circulation of Library Materials

Members of the general public do not have circulation privileges but are welcome to use materials in the library for their legal research needs.

Materials on Course Reserves may be checked out for two hours for in-library use only. Patrons without a CatCard will be asked to leave a valid form of official identification (e.g., bar card, drivers license) at the Reserve Desk until the item is returned.

Computers & Printing

The library has a number of public computers available for legal research purposes. Printing, copying, and scanning are also available in the library. Please see here for more information.
