The Chickasaw Nation Law Library at Oklahoma City University is available for use by the faculty, staff, and students of Oklahoma City University and Oklahoma City University Law School. Due to COVID-19, the Law Library is closed to any other patrons. Additional details on the resources and services available at the Law Library are available in the Research Guides and LibGuides. In all cases, use of the facilities and resources of the Law Library are subject to compliance with the rules of the Law Library.
The mission of the law library is to support the teaching, scholarship, research, and service endeavors of the students and faculty. In fulfilling this mission, the law library provides professional service, access to a high quality and thoughtfully organized collection in a variety of formats, and instructional programs that develop the legal research expertise of students. The law library is also a resource center for the legal profession and local community. In providing resources and services, the law library embraces the principles of diversity, equality, and inclusion.
The Law Library is a member of the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP). Members of the public may access materials received under the FDLP program during the Law Library’s public hours. Access to these materials for members of the public is not available outside of public hours or during law final examination and reading periods. Please note that the Law Library receives only a very small portion of FDLP materials. The Circulation and Reference Departments are available to assist patrons with FDLP materials. Individuals using the FDLP materials must abide by all other Law School, Law Library, and University rules and regulations. The Law Library has the right to bar or remove any individual who poses a threat to library staff, other patrons, or the security of library collections.
A basic collection of Federal Depository items is available here. Many are available electronically.
Rooms 112, 120, 206, 207, 215, and 236 are available for reservation online.
Study rooms are locked between reservations. When it is time for a reservation to begin, students should come to the Circulation desk so the door can be unlocked. When leaving the room, students need to check-out at the Circulation desk so the room can be re-locked.
Please use the cleaner and hand sanitizer provided in the rooms when you arrive in the room and when you leave it.
Study room reservations must adhere to the follow guidelines or reservations may be canceled. Study room policies will be more strictly enforced during reading and finals weeks, as well as during bar study times.
