Student Computer Labs

There are two computer labs in the library, and both are restricted to use by law students only. One of these is the Computer Assisted Legal Research (CALR) Room on Sub-2 where you may have training sessions for Westlaw or Lexis. The other lab is located on Sub-3.

General Access Computers

Catalog Terminals: On each floor in the library, located near the central staircase you will find general access computers that are intended for searching in the library's online catalog. Anyone can use these computers to search the catalog and print out catalog results on the attached printers.

Research Terminals: On Sub-1, there are seven general access computers where students or anyone with a pass to use the library can do legal research. Printing from these computers costs 10¢ per page and requires a Photocopy Card.

Law School Printing Policy

The Law School allows each student to print 800 pages at no cost, and additional pages cost 3¢ per page. Printing from the library computer labs counts toward your 800 pages. For more information about the Printing Policy, see the Printing Policy page on the Law School's website.
