Moritz Law Library Resources Remain Accessible

Even though the library’s physical space is closed, numerous Moritz Law Library resources and services remain accessible from afar. While reference librarians are not available in person to provide research guidance, you can reach them by email, chat, or telephone. See the library’s Ask a Librarian page for more details. Librarians also offer in-depth, virtual research consultations. See also the library’s guide to remotely accessing resources during the COVID-19 pandemic. This guide includes a table on how students can get online access to casebooks and other books assigned in Moritz courses.

And don’t forget online study aids like the West Academic and Wolters Kluwer series, as well as the hundreds of lessons available at CALI.org. For details, see the library’s research guide on law school academic success. A new set of study aids, including the “Understanding” series that was available in print in the library’s reserve room, is now temporarily available in the LexisNexis Digital Library. Register with your OSU email address as your user name to get trial access. If you have any difficulty accessing online library resources, please contact a reference librarian.
