Law Faculty Services: Circulation Services

The law library can be reached via chat, phone, email, or in person.

Circulation Services Overview

Through relationships fostered by The Ohio State University Libraries and Moritz College of Law Library, our faculty members have access to an enormous collection of books, journals, databases, and other research materials. Faculty members are welcome to come to the library to peruse the shelves or contact or their faculty liaison if they'd like to request a book or article.

Renew Your Books

If you'd like to renew a book or other item online, click My Account to log in to your library account. Renewing online is easy and can be done anywhere you have computer access, which can be convenient particularly during times you are teaching at other law schools or are on a research sabbatical. To use this service, have your BuckID ready as you will need your OSU ID to log in. That number can be found on your BuckID.


Fines for the Law Library, OSU campus, and OhioLink materials may be paid online via OSU Libraries My Record.

Ordering Books

The law library welcomes suggestions of books to purchase for our collection, particularly if they will assist in your scholarship and teaching. The books will become part of the law library collection, and they can be checked out to you on request.

If you'd like a personal copy of a book, we are happy to purchase those for you as well; such purchases will be made from your research budget and will be delivered to you on arrival at the law library.

Please send book order requests to your faculty liaison.

Books Not on the Shelf

If you are looking for a book and cannot find it on the shelf, let the Circulation Desk know.  The book may have been recently returned or misshelved.  If the book cannot be found, the Circulation staff can help find a copy from another library.

Borrowing Privileges

Moritz College of Law faculty members can check out books from the Moritz College of Law general stacks for one year with unlimited renewals. Other materials in our collection, like books and audio visual materials, can be checked out for six weeks with unlimited renewals.
