Fee-based Document Delivery / Photocopy & Fax Services
When provided with a complete citation, the Law Library will retrieve and fax or mail photocopies of certain library material for a nominal fee to members of the local bar who establish an account with the Access Services Department. For complete information, please contact the Access Services Supervisor at (757) 352-4450.
Law librarians are available to assist members of the local bar in locating and using law library resources. A law librarian is generally available Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., during the academic year. Reference assistance is more limited during the summer and when the Law School is not in session. For more information, please call (757) 352-4145, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Patrons with a properly equipped laptop or handheld device may access our wireless network, free of charge. LAN access is also available in certain areas of the Law Library.
In order to ensure that key materials are available to all researchers, the majority of the Law Library’s Collection has been designated as non-circulating. However, books that do circulate may be checked-out for a three-week loan period by local attorneys who establish a patron account. If at the end of that time the book is not late or placed on hold, it may be renewed for unlimited additional three-week periods. During a renewal period, a book is subject to recall. Recalled items must be returned within 5 days.
Fines for overdue books are $.10 per item per day. If the book is late and another patron has requested that the item be recalled, the fine increases to $.50 per item per day.
Two self-serve photocopiers are available for public use. Copies are $.10 per page. The machines accept change and bills. Reduced photocopy prices may be obtained through purchase of a copycard, available at Access Services.
