The Law Library is a non-circulating library (books are for use in-building only). However, it is possible for Michigan Law students to view books in the library building (underground).
To request an item from our library:
Scanning services are also available to the Michigan Law community, including students, faculty and staff.
If you would like to borrow an item or request a scan of an item that is not held in the law library or another campus library, Michigan Law Students may submit and ILL request. PLEASE NOTE: ILL cannot yet borrow physical items (print books, etc.) from other libraries, but we will endeavor to request a scan of items. Additionally, we cannot obtain copies of casebooks and other course materials via ILL.
