The Law Library will lend materials to another library upon request. Items circulate for four weeks. If the borrowing library requests a renewal and the book has not been requested by a Law Library patron, the item may be renewed for another two weeks. Charges for this service are listed below.
As a general rule, the Law Library does not lend non-circulating materials such as periodicals, looseleafs, reference books, reserve materials, or media resources (e.g., reporters, statutes, microforms, videotapes, CD-ROMs).
The Law Library offers Interlibrary Loan services to current CU Boulder Law students, faculty, and staff to assist them in obtaining materials for their coursework, journal articles, and research projects.
Law students desiring to borrow items for personal purposes as well as public patrons should contact the Interlibrary Loan department at their local public library.
Library materials may be used within the library by anyone. Law Library borrower cards or University of Colorado identification cards are required in order to check out law library materials. Only the person named on the card is allowed to use that card. Each borrower is responsible for all materials checked out in his or her name.
Library patrons have the option to print, copy, or scan materials. All of these services are provided by the University's technology department. For complete details, please see the guide How to Print in the Law Library or visit the OIT Student Printing and Scanning information webpage at http://oit.colorado.edu/printing.
Information and technology are natural partners. This union is especially true in academic law libraries in which so many resources are available online.
When you visit the law library, you are encouraged to bring your laptop computer. We provide wireless Internet access so you can keep in touch with your world while you are researching in our world. For more information about how to access the guest wireless system go to the UCB Guest Wireless page on the OIT website.
The Boulder Conference is a gathering of law librarians who meet to critique scholarly works-in-progress and to develop a pedagogy of legal research instruction. The conference has met annually since 2009. The first conference was held at the University of Colorado Law School's William A. Wise Law Library in Boulder, Colorado.
Colorado Law library faculty members are experts in legal research and teach a number of for-credit classes throughout the academic year. Please consult the Law School's Calendars and Schedules page to see what courses are being offered in the coming semester.
The law library is located on the second floor of the Wolf Law Building.
