Circulation Desk Hours:
Research & Reference Desk Hours (virtual):
The library has all 1L casebooks and many upper level casebooks and texts on closed reserve. Students should ask for them at the circulation desk and may check them out for 3 hours at a time. The library does not have electronic versions of casebooks available. The library will only copy/scan casebook and textbook readings on faculty request, not for individual students.
Casebook publishers are not offering complimentary access to their casebooks as they did in March 2020. Wolters Kluwer, now called Aspen Learning, provides a Connected E-book code for most of their casebooks when students buy them new. Students can also purchase Connected E-books for 40% off the cost of the print at https://www.casebookconnect.com/connectedeBooks.
West Academic offers immediate 14-day digital access to select casebooks on purchase and a 15% discount to our students with the code WAAMERICANU.
Most, if not all, casebooks are also available for rent and as used copies.
The Wolters Kluwer Online Study Aids Library is now called the Aspen Learning Library. To access titles such as Examples and Explanations, Glannon Guides, or the Emanuel Crunch Time or Law Outlines series, use this link: Aspen Learning Library.
