The law library works to support the educational and scholarship needs of the Colorado Law student body. To that end, we aim to provide access to resources, work with students on research projects, and teach courses on effective legal research.

Library Account

Every student is provided with a library account.  You can use this account to save catalog searches, request items to be held for you and renew library materials online. Ask a librarian for assistance with this feature.

Course Reserves

Faculty may place certain materials on Reserve for their classes.  Law students may borrow these materials for two hours.  Students may search the catalog for available items or simply ask at the Circulation Desk.

Borrowing Materials

Law students may borrow materials at any point in the semester for the remainder of the semester. Other CU Boulder students may borrow circulating materials for up to 4 weeks, depending on the patron and type of material being borrowed.  Students should inquire at the Circulation Desk for details on any particular item.  There is a self-check-out kiosk located near the garden-level library entrance. Patrons may use their Buff OneCard to borrow materials from this self-service point at any time, public patrons must borrow materials from the 2nd floor circulation desk.

Printing, Copying and Scanning

The Office of Information Technology (OIT) provides all university students with printing services.  The law school houses three printers: two on the second floor of the library and a third near the elevators on the second floor. 

For scanning and copying, the law library provides a book scanner in the second floor copy room.  Students can scan print items to email or USB drive without charge.  Students will need to utilize the wepa printers to recreate a print copy of the material.
