Remote Access to Library Resources (COVID-19 Response): Library Access & Services

Accessing the Library

In compliance with University policy, the Law Library is closed, and our staff are working remotely.  This closure is subject to change. Changes will be announced and noted on our website.

Do Not Return Books or Other Materials for more information see the Materials and Circulation page of this research guide.

Even if you are far from campus, the Washington University Law Librarians are still here for you!

Scanning Suspended

We regret that we will be unable to provide scans of any materials during this closure. There will be no library staff in the building to fulfill scanning requests.

We have been able to find alternative access for many print resources as many publishers have stepped up to offer free access to their materials during the pandemic.  You can find information about casebooks, study guides, and other resources on the second page of this research guide.  Please consult that page for tips on accessing electronic resources through our library, and through the main university library.  

For any other resources, please feel free to reach out to the librarians for assistance.
