We encourage students to study at home as much as possible, and to only use the library study 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.
Until further notice, the law library will be requiring students to complete a short Google Form each time you enter the library. You can access the form by scanning the QR code on the sign located near the library's security gates or by typing the URL (also on the sign) into your web browser. You can also access the form here.
Most smartphones allow you to scan QR codes by simply opening the camera app and pointing it steadily at the QR code for a few seconds. If your phone is not equipped to automatically scan QR codes, you can download one of a number of QR-code-scanner apps to your phone or type the provided URL into your web browser.
The form asks for some basic contact information that will help the university with contact tracing should the need arise.
During the Spring 2021 semester, the following policies are in place to promote the health and safety of all users:
The Law Library’s study rooms will be available for single users to attend online classes. The study rooms will not be available for group study as they were in the past. The room reservation system is thus for single users who need a space to participate in a virtual class while on campus.
The doors to the study rooms must be kept open to improve ventilation.
Due to anticipated demand, individual students will not be able to create advance reservations for an individual study room for the duration of the entire semester.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
