General Rules

The Jacob Burns Law Library is primarily a research and reference collection of law and law-related materials to be used within the library, and thus certain categories of legal materials do not circulate. Legal reference materials that do not circulate include digests, encyclopedias, court reports, statutes, codes, regulations, and bound periodicals. Other materials that do not circulate outside the library include microform.
