Week of April 13, 2020

Closed for On-Site Access

Due to the ongoing threat posed by COVID-19 (coronavirus) the library is closed for onsite access.

Library Resources During Covid-19

The Law Library is working with legal publishers as they temporarily remove paywalls and open access to various subscription services during the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope that these services can help you as you finish your semester in an online environment. We have created a new research guide to provide information about both current subscriptions and new temporary access options.

The Chicago-Kent librarians are dedicated to providing research, reference, and technical assistance to faculty and students during the time the law building and law library are closed. Please contact us at between 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. with your questions. Depending on your question, we can customize the best way to respond, whether by email response or a Google Meets conversation.
