Law Library Access

In response to Gov. Kate Brown's new orders to slow the spread of COVID-19, the law library facilities will be closed to UO students, faculty, and staff. Law library staff will continue to provide remote services Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm.

Research Help

Research help and consultations are available remotely. No in-person drop-in research help is currently available.

Email lawref@uoregon.edu or call 541-346-1654 and leave a message to make an appointment with a librarian. We check messages during the research help hours posted on our website.

A list of research guides and recommended resources curated by our reference librarians is available on our website.

Borrowing

Email the law library Checkout/Reserves/Information Desk with any borrowing questions lawcirc@uoregon.edu. Request UO resources through LibrarySearch. We are currently offering:

  • email delivery of scanned articles available in the library
  • scheduled pickup of items requested for checkout and ILL

Summit borrowing has been suspended until further notice.

While Interlibrary loan requests are being accepted, many libraries across the country are closed and not able to fill requests. Please fill out the Recommend Item for Purchase form. Note that not all fields are required. Under "Select Subject" select "Law (Law Library Faculty)" so the request is sent to the law library for consideration. If we are unable to purchase, a reference librarian will be in contact to discuss alternatives.
