UA Law Faculty: Faculty Services

The Law Library offers a wide array of resources and services to support the teaching and scholarship of the faculty members at the University of Arizona College of Law.

Instructional Support

Reference Librarians are available to provide instructional support for College of Law faculty in the classroom or by assisting your students through research sessions offered in the library. We can also create subject-specific bibliographies or research guides for a specific class as requested. Law Library support for faculty instruction includes:

Course Reserves: The Law Library maintains a temporary reserve shelf consisting of faculty-owned photocopied cases, articles, etc., as well as faculty-owned copies of books to be used by their students during a particular semester.

Law Library Sample Exam Bank: The library maintains paper copies and an online database of previous course exams to which faculty members may choose to contribute.

Classroom Presentations on Legal Research: The Law Library offers customized legal research presentations for College of Law courses.

Faculty Scholarship Support

The Law Library provides a wide array of services and resources to support faculty research and scholarship. Law Library support for faculty scholarship includes:

Research and Reference Assistance: The library provides email reference support to faculty through the Reference Desk email account. Faculty members may also come to the Reference Office during normal reference hours.

Current Awareness Services: In addition to the full-text research databases mentioned above, the Law Library subscribes to a number of current awareness services, including Current Index to Legal Periodicals, SmartCilp, Social Science Research Network (SSRN), the Bepress alerting service, BNA Highlights and more.

Article/Book Retrieval: Law Library staff will retrieve materials from UA main campus libraries and deliver to your faculty mailbox. Return service is also provided.

Research Databases: The Law Library subscribes to a number of general and specialized legal databases, most of which involve some sort of restriction on access. For a complete list of research databases and relevant password and descriptive information, visit the Research Databases for Law Faculty page.

Working Papers: The library can assist those law faculty members wishing to add their current scholarship to the Legal Scholarship Network (LSN) repository.

Book Orders: The library also purchases materials requested by faculty in support of their current scholarship interests. Books may be purchased by the library directly or through an individual faculty member's faculty allotment.

Material Routing: Library materials such as current law journals can be routed to you at your request.

Student Research Assistants: For faculty members using law or grad students to assist with complex research assignments, the library provides one-on-one research guidance, specialized database instruction, and basic instruction on Westlaw or Lexis as needed (e.g. grad students needing temporary access).

Online Bibliography of Faculty Publications

The Law Library developed and maintains a current bibliography of law faculty publications. Please send any updates or corrections to the bibliography to Leah Sandwell-Weiss.

Faculty Publications Display Case

The Law Library maintains the display case located in the College lobby, just outside the library entrance. We attempt to collect three copies of all faculty-authored books and two copies of individual reprints. (Donations are always accepted.) Faculty are encouraged to add their works to this collection.
