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).
- Quick access to Law eBooks collections
- LawCat and OskiCat list many electronic resources, including eBook copies of books we cannot access right now.
- eBooks at Berkeley guide for information on using UC Berkeley’s robust non-law eBook collections.
- HathiTrust ETAS for temporary, view-only access to millions of print materials owned by the UC (uses CalNet authentication – see eBooks guide for details and FAQs for using the HathiTrust ETAS).
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 email@example.com. You can login to your LawCat account to see what is currently checked out to you.
