LibGuides and Research Guides
The law library has created a number of LibGuides and research guides on various subjects. These guides are a useful starting point for conducting research as they provide a general overview of the subject and list important library and internet resources. All LibGuides and research guides are accessible at: http://libguides.okcu.edu/lawlibrary
Interlibrary loan (ILL) is a free service that provides law students and faculty access to materials not owned by Oklahoma City University Cooperative agreements allow libraries around the world to lend and borrow books, articles, and other materials.
A full tutorial on how to make an ILL request is available on the LibGuide, Requesting items the Library doesn't own via Inter-Library Loan (ILL): Getting Started. Requests may also be submitted requested directly through a reference librarian. For questions concerning interlibrary loan contact the reference librarian on duty or Jordan Piel.
The Chickasaw Nation Law Library has three librarians holding J.D. degrees, and they enjoy teaching Oklahoma City University Law students how to effectively conduct legal research using paper and online sources to find case law, statutes, administrative rules, treatises and monographs. The law library also trains a few talented law students to provide reference assistance to their peers. A reference librarian or student reference assistant is available Monday through Friday during the fall and spring semesters.
Reference Assistance is Available:
Mon - Thu 7:30 am - 5 pm
Friday 7:30 am - 5 pm
To contact a reference librarian or student reference assistant, call the Chickasaw Nation Law Library main line at 405-208-5271. You may also contact reference librarians directly. If they are not available, they will get back to you as soon as possible.
