Library Resources for Law Courses

This is a guide to help students enrolled in any law course, especially courses without specific guides dedicated to them.

Curricular Support

Course Reserves
You may check out course reserve materials for a 2-hour loan period in the law school building. Because they are in high demand, these materials are kept behind the circulation desk and are available on a first-come first-served basis. Staff cannot hold reserve items for specific patrons. The fine for returning course reserve materials late is $1 per hour, per item

Course Evaluations & Exam Archive
Online course evaluations from spring 2011 until the present may be found on our website. At their discretion, law professors may also submit examinations to be included in the Law Library’s Exam Archive.

Library Amenities for Law Students
We offer phone chargers, Macbook power adapters, and bookstand standing desks for a 2-hour renewable check out. Earplugs are also available at our circulation desk.

Our Study Spaces
We have a variety of study areas to meet the needs of our students. There are individual study carrels on the 3rd floor and in the Richey Reading Room of the library, which is a designated quiet zone on the lower level. The Davis Room, located at the west end of the first floor of the library, is excellent for quiet study and enjoying the views of University Circle and the Cleveland Botanical Gardens.

Eight study rooms are located on the 3rd floor of the library. All of the study rooms are equipped with technology, including a computer, TV and Intel Unite. The rooms may be reserved for groups of two or more for a maximum time of 3 hours per day. Reservations can be made up to two days in advance and are taken on a first come, first served basis.

Scheduling a Study Room

  • Login with your network ID and password.
  • Choose the day within the calendar that you would like to reserve
  • Click on the room and time on the grid to begin making your reservation.

If no group has reserved a study room, an individual student may use the room with the understanding that they may be asked to leave by a group with a reservation. The same library food and drink policies apply to the small group study rooms and are posted on the doors. Please remember that the rooms are not soundproof, so be considerate of your fellow classmates studying around you.
