Research Support

The library provides discipline-specific and interdisciplinary support for both conceptual and empirical research. To request assistance Contact the Library.

Book and Article Delivery

Books and articles will be quickly delivered to faculty mailboxes if the material is available in the Law Library or at other libraries on campus.

You will receive timely and regular updates on the progress of these efforts.
