Welcome New Students!

 By the end of this week, all 1Ls, LLMs, and transfer students should have received their Bloomberg Law, Westlaw, and Lexis Advance account information from Biddle Law Library*. In addition to these databases, Biddle encourages students to make use of a variety of library services.

Ask Us Questions!
Biddle Reference Librarians are here to answer any and all questions you may have about legal research and library services. You may find us at the reference desk on the main floor of the library or in our offices. You may also email questions to library@law.upenn.edu or ask them via the library’s chat reference service.
 
Use Library Resources!
Students may check out most print materials at the circulation desk, using their Penn Law ID cards. The circulation desk is also where students may find materials that have been placed on course reserve.  To search for materials, use LOLA, the library’s catalog.
