Services for Faculty

Loyola Law Library staff are happy to support faculty teaching and research through the following services:

  • Research Help: For research help, please email or call 213-736-1177. Each of Loyola's reference librarians has both a J.D. and a master's degree in librarianship. The reference librarians are happy to support research and teaching by retrieving books, articles, and legal documents; obtaining access to databases; establishing email alerts for news, journals, and cases; training research assistants; and guest lecturing.
  • Course Reserves: To place materials on reserve for your class, please email or call 213-736-1117. Items may be placed on reserve at any time during the semester but placing items on reserve can take several weeks for newly purchased items, so faculty are encouraged to contact the library well in advance of when the item is needed. The library's goal is to have every book required for every class on course reserve. If you would like to place a personal copy on reserve, please fill out Faculty Copies for Library Course Reserve [Printable PDF] or online form and send to Circulation. 
  • Current Awareness: To request that a print journal, magazine, or newspaper be routed to you, please email We ask that faculty keep routed materials for no more than two weeks so that others can receive the issue promptly. For assistance with establishing email alerts, please contact a reference librarian.
