Student Research Assistants should contact the librarian liaison assigned to the faculty member for research tutorials and guidance. Students are welcome to visit or email the reference desk in either library location.
Please visit our Library Policies page for more information on library access, borrowing, patron, and other policies.
Interlibrary Loan: Interlibrary loan services are available for all Rutgers Students, Faculty, and Staff. If you can't find what you are looking for in the Law Library or through RUL, consider making an Interlibrary Loan request. You can place an ILL request directly by activating and using your own ILL account. Students who are doing source-collecting for Journals need to check with the editor-in-chief of their journal when placing ILL requests. Please ask at the reference desk for details and assistance. Contact your liaison for help or call the Camden Branch or Newark Branch Reference Desks.
Materials borrowed via ILL may be returned at any Rutgers library.
Research and Reference: Reference Librarians can assist students with any legal research matters and are available to students at the reference desk and by appointment for more in-depth legal research instruction.
Course Reserve: Students who need to request materials on reserve should be able to do so through the catalog's "Chapter Request" feature. They should have access to their courses through Canvas. They should contact their professors for assistance. Course reserves can be search here.
Borrowing: For all students, circulating materials may be checked out for term loans. All materials may be renewed unless recalled by another patron.
Overdue Books:Fines are charged for overdue books, and students are responsible for returning books by the due date. A hold will be placed on the borrowing privileges and academic records of any student with overdue materials. Please be aware that in the legal field, it is common for potential employers to require a recent academic transcript. In addition, a hold on your academic record will interfere with providing proof of graduation when applying to the Bar. It is therefore important that all borrowed materials be returned, and that lost materials be paid for.
For graduating students, diplomas will be held back until all obligations to the library are satisfied.
