Law Library Services Update - COVID-19

We encourage students to study at home as much as possible, and to only use the library study space:

  1. If they are already on campus and waiting for a class to begin;
  2. If they lack adequate study space in their living space.

We also strongly encourage students to limit their time in the Law Library to less than 3 hours in order to ensure there is enough space for others to make use of the resources and facilities.
Studying at home as much as possible helps to maintain the health and safety of our entire community—thank you for doing your part in this important effort.

Library Policies

During fall 2021, the following policies are in place to promote the health and safety of all users:

  • Anyone not yet fully vaccinated must wear a mask at all times while in the Library, including in bathrooms, carrels, and group study rooms. Those who are fully vaccinated are not required to wear a mask.
  • Use the provided disinfectant wipes and/or disinfectant spray and paper towels to wipe down your work area both before and after use.
  • Only the Law School community (current students, faculty, and staff) are allowed to access the Law Library.

Rare Book Room

Due to COVID-19 and staffing restraints, we will not be able to welcome researchers onsite to view materials in our special collections. We will do our best to fulfill image requests, if possible. Please email curator Laurel Davis at davislp@bc.edu with any inquiries.

Law students are welcome to use the room as a quiet study space when it is open (hours may be irregular) but are required to wear a mask and physically distance from other users.
