Reading & Examination Period
During the Law School’s reading and examination period, access is limited to Penn Carey Law students, University of Pennsylvania faculty, Law School alumni, and members of the bar. During the restricted access period, Penn students may request permission to access the law library collection for research. To view restricted time periods, view the library’s calendar.
Federal Depository Library Program
This library is a congressionally designated depository for U.S. Government documents. Biddle’s print depository materials can be identified through the Search Center Catalog.
Public access to the government documents collection is guaranteed by public law (Title 44 United States Code), but due to ongoing university building restrictions, an advance appointment is required to enter the library. The majority of current federal government information is also available online through resources like GovInfo and Congress.gov.
For assistance in finding and using electronic government documents, consult a Biddle Law Librarian. To make an appointment to use the collection in person, contact Library Access.
