Welcome New Students!

August 27, 2014

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 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.
Students may also take advantage of the large number of electronic resources available through the library. For more information on the resources available and how to access them, both on and off-campus, see this guide. 
The library has a number of different study spaces, including study rooms, carrels, large tables, and comfortable chairs.  During the regular school year Biddle Law Library is generally open at these times:


During exam periods, Biddle provides 24-hour access to law students. For complete access and hours information.
For updates about library events and services, please check out the library’s homepage, twitter, and Facebook account
