Welcome to the Robert S. Marx Law Library

Welcome to the  Robert S. Marx Law Library! 

This guide is intended to introduce you to the many ways that the Law Library can assist you.  While the primary mission of the Robert S. Marx Law Library is to support research, scholarship, and learning for faculty and students in the College of Law, the Law Library also makes many of its resources available to members of the University of Cincinnati community, and the local bench and bar. Members of the general public, businesses, and organizations may access the Law Library for the purpose of conducting legal research. Individuals who wish to use the Law Library's collection of U.S. Federal Depository documents are also welcome.

 

Lending of Library Materials

  • The Law Library does not lend library materials to Non-UC patrons unless they are community borrowers or members of a Search Ohio library.  Information on becoming a community borrower and borrowing privileges can be found at http://www.libraries.uc.edu/services/borrow.

  • Library materials may be used within the Library during regular hours, but may not be removed from the Library. Under certain circumstances, an I.D. will be required to use materials on the premises. Photocopiers are available in the Library for the use of all patrons.
