This guide is intended to introduce you to the many ways that the Law Library can assist new graduates. 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.
Circulation and reference are only available during certain hours. Hours vary during holidays. You can check Library hours at 556-0163 or at the Law Library's website. If you need circulation assistance, please contact the Circulation Manager, Justin Ellis.
Take advantage of Reference Librarian expertise! Schedule an appointment and we'll be happy to help with suggestions for sources and tips. Also, don't forget the Library's Web page and many research guides.
To report an emergency, dial 911. To report any personal non-emergency or after hours facility-related urgent issues, please call UC Public Safety at 556-1111. To report facility-related issues during business hours, please contact the Circulation Manager, Justin Ellis.
Alumni may access UCLID, the University's online catalog, selected Law Library and University databases, or U.S. Federal Depository resources on the web through the public computer in the Library Service Suite. Alumni also have access to a limited selection of Westlaw databases through a dedicated computer located in the Library Service Suite. While this service does not provide access to all Westlaw databases, it does provide access to federal and state primary legal materials, as well as KeyCite.
Due to license restrictions, we cannot offer access to Lexis, Westlaw (other than through the Westlaw Public Access terminal), or B-Law. Due to license restrictions, we also cannot offer off-campus access to databases to graduates.
Local alumni needing remote access to databases such as ALI-ABA Practical Lawyer, FastCase treatises, Ebsco, HeinOnline, Fastcase, and CCH may want to become subscribers the the Hamilton County Law Library. The Hamilton County Law Library also provides on-site access to print resources, BNA, Ohio Capital Connection, Lexis, and Westlaw for its subscribers. You can see a complete list of their services and information on how to join on their website.
The Law Library provides a scanner for public use.
