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, conducting preliminary research prior to the consultation. If you need items from the library’s print collection, please reach out to the reference librarians, as they may be able to provide what you are looking for in an alternative format. For instance, many ebooks are available through the OSU Libraries catalog. Further, in addition to Lexis and Westlaw, the Moritz Law Library and the main OSU library provide access to a large number of research databases. See the Moritz Law Library’s databases page and the OSU Libraries list. See also the library’s guide on remotely accessing databases, casebooks, and other resources.
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. If you have any difficulty accessing online library resources, please contact a reference librarian. The Moritz Law Library is committed to making sure its patrons have what they need for the remainder of the semester and beyond.
