Federal Depository Library

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.

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.
