Remote Access to Law Library Services

This guide provides information on library services provided to the USC Gould community during the COVID-19 public health crisis.

Law Library Services and Reopening Plans

The USC Law Library is online—we’re here and ready to help you. At this time, the law library is closed and cannot reopen until we receive reopening guidance from local, county, and state authorities. The situation is fluid, and we will post updates as we have them.

We will continue to support our faculty, students, and staff with your research needs during the COVID-19 situtation. This guide lists various remote services we are able to provide.

If you have any suggestions, please email Library Suggestions, or Diana Jaque, Director of the Law Library.

Digitizing Print Sources

Library staff are not in the building, so we are unable to obtain and digitize our print sources at this time. If you require digitization of sources to share with classmates, work groups, or students, read our suggestions below:

1) With a mobile app like CamScanner (available for both iOS and Android devices), take photos of the pages you need (single or batch mode). Use the various options for saving, sharing, and delivering the generated file.

2) Use the Google Drive mobile app and select the + sign button on the bottom right corner to take photos of the source. Photos will be saved automatically to your Google Drive.

As always, be mindful and respectful of copyright law when scanning and sharing sources.

Book Purchases (for faculty)

Faculty who need an electronic source purchased should email bookpurchases@law.usc.edu.
