This guide to the Law Library is for adjunct law faculty. See how we can help support your teaching!

Circulation

Circulation

Circulation and Reserve services are available at the Circulation Desk which is immediately on right as you enter the library. You can access UCLID, the online catalog, from any computer connected to the Internet whether on-campus or off-campus.

Library Borrowing Privileges

Adjunct law faculty who are members in good standing of an OhioLINK or SearchOhio institution have borrowing privileges at UC libraries (if you are a member in good standing of The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County and have a valid pin number, for example, you can check out books).

Adjunct law faculty who are not members of an OhioLINK or SearchOhio institution may obtain borrowing privileges by becoming a Community Borrower. Persons wanting to become a Community Borrower must do so in person with proper identification at Langsam. Information on becoming a community borrower and borrowing privileges can be found on the University Libraries Borrow Materials page.. 

Renewals may be made in person or by telephone at 556-3016. Please inform the circulation desk staff member that you are a visiting patron. You will need to provide your library care and pin number. You may also be able to renew through your institution's catalog.  

If you wish to check out Law Library non-circulating material, please contact Lisa Wernke at (513) 556-0156, lisa.britt@uc.edu, Office 310A. Exceptions may be granted on a case-by-case basis.

The Library does not maintain records of materials you have returned. Once materials are returned all records are cleared from the system.

Adjunct Law Faculty who are members of an OhioLINK or SearchOhio institution should request materials from other UC libraries or OhioLINK libraries through:

Course Reserves

Reserves are located in a room behind the Circulation Desk, the loan period for students is for a two-hour period. Material for courses can be placed on reserve by contacting Lisa Britt Wernke at (513) 556-0156, lisa.britt@uc.edu, Office 310A. Examples of materials that can be placed on reserve are:

  • Photocopied course materials;
  • Personal copies of materials;
  • Library materials, including books, videotapes or microforms; and
  • Videotape or audiotape recordings of class sessions or presentations.

To expedite this process, provide the item you wish to be placed on reserve as well as the name of the course or seminar for which it is to be placed on reserve, and any restrictions on use. Copyright assistance information can be found at the University Libraries Copyright webpage. We also have a guide on fair use and T.E.A.C.H.: Copyright Law for Students and Faculty: Fair Use and T.E.A.C.H.

We must have copyright permission for third-party copied materials. If it is an item from the Law Library’s collection, please give Lisa Britt Wernke a citation for the item as well as the name of the course or seminar, and any restrictions on use.

Exam File

The Law Library maintains a file of past exams for student use. Students frequently ask for old exams to help them study. Faculty members decide whether or not to make those exams available to the Library. To make exams available, please contact Susan Boland, susan.boland@uc.edu, at (513) 556-1332.
