Circulating Accessories and Equipment

The law library provides much more than access to books and online resources.  We also offer a selection of circulating accessories and equipment for your convenience, including the items listed below. As of the fall 2020 semester, we will be using a UV sanitizing machine to sanitize all circulating items between uses.

  • book stands
  • calculators
  • chalk and erasers
  • chargers (including iphone, Android, MacBook, and USB-C)
  • dry-erase markers and erasers
  • earplugs (free and yours to keep)
  • headphones

Student Printing

Student printing is supported by the Law School’s Information Technology department. Information regarding student printing can be accessed from their departmental page.
