Non-Law School Patron Guide to Law Library Access and Use Policies

This guide describes access and use policies at the Robert S. Marx Law Library for non-law students, staff, faculty, and members of the public.

Welcome

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 non-law patrons. 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.
