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 email@example.com or ask them via the library’s chat reference service.
Now, in addition to asking us questions in person or via phone/email/chat, you can search our Biddle Answers database, to see if perhaps we have already answered your question. For example: How can I easily access materials when I am off campus? What are some useful databases for finding case law? What does “Closed Reserve” mean?
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.
