Announcing Library2Go - Remote Access to the Library’s Physical Collection

Author: 

We are pleased to announce the launch of Library2Go—an on-demand scanning service that is part of a series of service updates to the Law Library’s COVID-19 response. We welcome currently enrolled law students, faculty, and staff to submit requests. Our goal is to support the research and teaching of the law school community.

How do I begin?

In the Catalog, sign in with your NetID.

Which materials are eligible?

There are many print materials in our library collection, including study aids, that are eligible for scan requests. You will be able to determine which materials are eligible for scanning by looking at the Request Options for that book. All requests are subject to the University Library’s fair use and copyright policies.

If you need a book that is currently checked out of the library or is otherwise unavailable, please contact our Interlibrary Loan department, or Ask a Law Librarian so that they can begin an Interlibrary Loan request on your behalf.

How long does it take to fulfill a request?

Current COVID-19 health and safety restrictions guide our practices on how we can handle materials in the library. As a result, our turnaround time may take up to 12 business days. Please plan ahead and submit your requests well before your deadlines.

How do I know that my request went through?

After submitting your request, you should see a confirmation screen with a message saying, “Request placed.”

Journal members submitted multiple requests for the same book. Can we cancel?

Librarians will cancel duplicate requests.

How will I receive the scanned pages?

When your request has been processed, you will receive an email message with a link to download your file. We will make every attempt to provide you with searchable documents.

I followed all instructions, but I still don’t see any Request options other than “Ask a Law Librarian.”

If you are signed in, but the catalog is still not providing you with request options, the material that you are looking for may not be eligible for scanning. If you would like the Law Library to locate an alternative copy for you, please Ask a Law Librarian.
