Catalog (URSUS)

The Donald L. Garbrecht Law Library, named for the Law Librarian who served the school from 1963 to 1979, contains over 335,000 volumes, entirely shelved in open stacks. Our library supports Law School curricular needs, as well as in-depth student and faculty legal research and writing. As a U.S. government publications depository, the law library receives federal publications which support law student and faculty research. The law library has a complete collection of federal and state statutes and law reports, as well as a comprehensive collection of Canadian and British Commonwealth law reports and statutes. Our periodical collection is outstanding and features most American, Canadian, and British legal periodicals. In addition, there is an excellent collection of recent Congressional hearings, reports, and bills.

Both Westlaw and Lexis computer assisted legal research services are available to students, staff, and faculty, and a training program has been developed to familiarize users of these systems with these important research tools. The library staff of six professional librarians and four supporting personnel service the library's collection; they are available to provide reference service, prepare bibliographies, and instruct in the use of all specialized legal materials. Open 97 hours a week during the academic year, and offering reference service 40 hours a week, the library and staff consider accessibility a priority.
