Use this map (which can also be found posted around the library) to see where particular call numbers are located.
Many print books are also available as e-books. If you are searching for e-books, visit our Legal Research Databases: E-Books guide for a list of useful databases. Additionally, older books that are no longer in copyright are often available online. Try searching Google Books or the Internet Archive.
To locate relevant books, search by keyword, title, author, etc. in the following catalogs:
You can find basic tips on how to use these catalogs here: guides.osu.edu/help/home
In the Library Catalog, use the red "Request this item" button for items not in the Moritz Law Library collection but available at other OSU library locations. To complete the request, you will need to enter your name, as it appears on your BuckID, and your University ID number, which is the shorter string of numbers on your BuckID. You will receive an email message when the item arrives.
In the Library Catalog, also notice the blue "OhioLINK catalog" button, which you can use to search other Ohio academic libraries for a book. Once in the OhioLINK catalog, use the green "Request" button to request delivery of a book to the law library. To complete the request, you will need to enter your name, as it appears on your BuckID, and your University ID number, which is the shorter string of numbers on your BuckID. You will receive an email message when the item arrives.
If you cannot find a book in the Library Catalog or on OhioLINK, check WorldCat to see if a library outside Ohio has the item. To request a book available through WorldCat, fill out an orange interlibrary loan request form at the reference desk or use the main library's interlibrary service, ILLiad. If you need a PDF of a source that replicates the print version, specify this in the online form.
