The Law Library offers Interlibrary Loan services to law faculty and staff to assist them in obtaining materials for their coursework, journal articles, and research projects.
The Law Library participates in several library cooperative ventures that allow us to borrow and lend materials with other libraries. This greatly expands the resources available to our patrons.
Be sure to search Lawpac, the Law Library catalog, and Chinook, the University Libraries catalog, before ordering materials through ILL. We do not order via ILL any materials which are currently held by a library on the CU Boulder campus.
