General access policies can be found on the library website. The Library is making adjustments in order to provide as many regular services as possible, but policies may need to be revised to meet the developing needs of the COVID-19 pandemic environment. Please continue to refer to this guide for changes and updates to library policies.



Wēpa and Lexis print kiosks are located in the library and around the law building. A new Lexis kiosk is now available in the cafeteria. See the Print tab of this guide for more details.


Seat Reservations

Students wishing to study in the building must book an individual seating assignment through LibCal. No group study spaces are currently available. Reserved seating can be found on the 1st and 2nd floors of the library, as well as the 2nd and 3rd floors of Dowling Hall.

Reservations can be made up to one day in advance. Two three-hour blocks of time per day may be reserved. When you arrive for your booking, scan the QR code at your seat or check in using the link in your confirmation email—reservations will be automatically cancelled after 30 minutes if you have not checked in.
