Resources for Law Faculty & Staff

Library Help for Law Faculty & Staff

  • Research Requests – we can fulfill requests using online resources and can meet via Zoom to discuss your needs.
  • Document Delivery – the Baker service for delivery of materials from elsewhere on campus and Interlibrary Borrowing/Loans (ILL) are not operating yet, but we will attempt to locate online versions of requested books and documents.  
  • Chat Reference – for help finding online materials, or other reference questions.
  • Course Reserves support – we are happy to help find ways to provide library-supported access to online course materials and will do our best to provide you and the students with the materials needed for your classes.
  • Other services – class instruction by librarians, Scholarly Repository and faculty profile support, eTOC services, and other law library help for faculty and staff remain available. 

Sending your inquiries through these channels will ensure we can get back to you with help quickly.  

Online Access to Books (and More)

While not all texts are available in electronic form, the Law Library and University have robust eBook access (make sure you are set up for remote access via proxy or VPN).  

Additionally, the Law Library provides a databases list for access to electronic resources on specific topics and jurisdictions. You may also wish to consult the main library’s subject-specific list.

Returning Materials

We know you may still have library materials borrowed before the campus was shut down. Fear not! Due dates have been extended and there are no late fines. If you wish to return materials, please email circadmin@law.berkeley.edu. You can login to your LawCat account to see what is currently checked out to you.
