Library Access & Services

Law Library Access

For the duration of the Fall semester, the Law Library will open on a limited basis to current Detroit Mercy Law students and faculty only. Social distancing and masks are mandatory. For more information on the University's mask policy, click HERE. Students arriving at the school must sign in at a table near the Larned doors. Those entering the Law Library should also check in with the Circulation Desk.

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.


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, 2nd, and 3rd floors of the library, as well as the 2nd and 3rd floors of Dowling Hall. Limited unreserved seating is available in the library for students who are picking up print jobs or making other quick trips.

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.
