The Bounds Law Library welcomes visitors and members of the community. Although the primary focus of the law library is to provide services needed by the law faculty and law students, the library offers many services which are available to all who enter. Our goal is to provide high quality library service. We are here to help.

You can find answers to many of your questions here.


The Circulation Desk is staffed all hours the library is open to the general public.

Although much of the law library’s collection is non-circulating, due to its research value, single volume treatises can be checked out. All check-out and check-in takes place at the Circulation Desk.

Photocopying Services

There are three photocopiers for student use. Two photocopy machines are located near the Circulation Desk in Room 228; a third machine is downstairs in the suite of offices adjoining the Student Lounge. These machines require a copy card, which may be purchased from the dispenser in the Gorgas library.

Lost & Found

A lost and found area is maintained at the Circulation Desk. Please inquire here if you have lost an item in the library. Students with missing possessions may also check with the housekeepers and at the Records Office.
