Law Library Maps

The First Floor serves as the main entrance to the library. The Circulation desk, Reference desk, student computers and conference rooms (SLS only) are located on this floor. Collections on the first floor include federal materials, Vrooman popular reading titles, and specialty collections. Course reserves and permanent reserves are located behind the Circulation desk.

The Second Floor is a 24/7 quiet study space that houses in-library use only materials (Stacks-2 items) including the Eyles Aisle collection. The “Teaming Room” on this floor provides scanning, printing, and faxing for SLS affiliates. After-hours access to the second floor is limited to SLS students, faculty, and staff.

The Basement houses the majority of the Law Library’s browsable print collection, including folios.

The Locked-Stacks is a closed stack space that houses selected print materials and the Law Library’s microform collection. Since the materials in this location are not open stacks, please visit the Circulation Desk on the first floor to have items paged.
