Safety first!
To prevent the spread of COVID-19, you must wear a mask in common areas inside the library. No food allowed, but drinks in spill-proof containers are acceptable. Anyone who fails to comply with safety measures may be asked to leave for the day.

Do I have to wear a mask while I study?
Yes. Masks, face shields, and/or face coverings are required in all indoor common spaces on campus. If you need accommodation, email Associate Dean Jennifer Espinola or contact the Accessible Education Center.

Can I check out a study room?
Yes. Study rooms are now available to check out for JD, CRES, and LLM students. To see which rooms are reservable, see Study Room Reservations. The loan period on study rooms are two hours (group rooms) and 4 hours (individual rooms). Masks are not required if you are studying alone with the door shut. Partners or groups within study rooms must wear masks.

Where are the printers?
The printers are on the first floor in the student lounge and the second floor Copier Room in the library.

You may come into the library to use the scanner on the far side of the front desk. Scanning is free. Email scanned materials to yourself or others.

Use Document Delivery to get articles and chapters from the UO Libraries emailed to you. Fast and free!

Are the vending machines available?
Yes. Vending machines are now available. Credit/debit cards only (no cash).

How can I get research help?
Email the law reference librarians at or call 541-346-1654. Messages are checked periodically during the day. Librarians can help you identify and use resources needed for research projects, writing papers, or to reinforce what you are learning in Legal Research & Writing. Law school journals editors are also encouraged to contact the librarians, e.g. for source pulls. See our Research Help page for more.

I need study aids!
Go online! We provide free online study aids to all law students. Try out the West Academic Study Aids and the Wolters Kluwer Online Study Aid Library. They duplicate the print study aids and are available 24/7.

If you want a print study aid, sign into the library catalog and try this search: “study aids” and torts (or other topic). Limit to UO Libraries. Sort by newest.

What about books and videos?
Stacks are accessible to browse. You can also request materials to be picked up at the Circulation Desk or via Curbside Pickup at the Law School parking lot. Sign in to the library catalog to request print study aids, books, and videos. For more about borrowing library materials, see our Get Library Materials page. Questions? Call 541-346-3088.
