The law library will be closed on Monday, October 12th in observance of Columbus/ Indigenous Peoples’ Day  holiday. The law library’s email, telephone, and statewide chat services will resume on Tuesday, October 13th.

You can access many of our online resources while the Library is closed. Start with our COVID-19 Legal Issues page, Self-Help Center, or the research and motion guides on our website. They cover dozens of legal topics. Also, you can remotely access many of our legal databases, including NOLO’s self-help legal books, from the legal databases page.

Starting Tuesday, October 13th,  the Downtown location will be open by appointment only for computer or reading room use. We are excited to see you in person again, but know this will be a very different experience from pre-Covid times. Learn more about how to make an appointment here.
