How to Request and Retrieve Print Material
Starting Fall 2020, physical Law Library materials will be accessible by online request only and in-person pick-up.
- NYU Law students and faculty, when viewing a book in Julius, can click on the "PLACE HOLD" icon to submit requests. If the "place hold" option is unavailable, please direct an inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org
- You will be notified by email when your book is ready for pickup at the Circulation Desk.
- Please note that delivery can take between 2-4 business days, due to staff shortages and time needed to quarantine print material between patrons.
- Circulation-related questions can be directed to the Circulation Desk at email@example.com
Please return books by dropping them into the bin immediately inside the library’s Vanderbilt Hall entrance. Books will be quarantined for three days before being checked in, and any fines accrued during that time will be cancelled.
Articles and Book Chapters
- Articles in law reviews and other scholarly works are best located online by searching the Law Library JULIUS Online Catalog, using the "Find Journals & Articles" function, and by searching Bobst Library's BOBCAT.
- Also refer to our research guides on finding articles and finding books, and see also Electronic Resources below.
- Presently, due to in-person staffing shortages, the Law Library is not able to offer a photocopy or scanning on demand service.
Books owned by Bobst Library

The Interlibrary Loan Department is processing article and book chapter requests. However, please expect some covid-induced delays. At the current time, the Department is only placing a limited number of whole-book ILL requests. As always, submit ILL requests via the library’s ILLIAD system.
NYU Law students and faculty may submit research and reference inquiries by email to LawLibRef@mercury.law.nyu.edu This mailbox will be monitored by Reference Librarians who will respond to inquiries within a reasonable time framework. Faculty, however, should primarily rely on their liaisons.
