Welcome to Notre Dame Law School’s Kresge Law Library. Here a talented staff, quality collection, and splendid physical facility combine to make the law library one of the law school’s finest assets. The beautiful reading room with its Gothic-themed architecture is filled with natural light and features attractive study spaces. Located on four floors in the superbly-renovated Biolchini Hall of Law, the law library includes seating for 550
- with 150 individual study carrels. There are 26 study rooms for collaborative study. The rich collection contains 300,000 print volumes, 3,000 print serial titles, 300,000 microform volume equivalents, and more than 35,000 electronic resources. We hope that seated in these comfortable surroundings, assisted by knowledgeable staff, you’ll be inspired to do your best while preparing for class or conducting extensive research.
Due to anticipated high demand, you may not reserve a study room more than one day in advance. On any day during this period, you may reserve a room for that day or for the following day, but not beyond that. You can make same-day or next-day reservations online at the Circulation Desk.
Study rooms will be left unlocked from 10 p.m. until 8:00 a.m. the next day. If you are in an unlocked room for which you have an 8:00 a.m. reservation, you must go to the Circulation Desk at 8:00 a.m. to retrieve the key.
Beginning Monday, April 22, the Circulation Desk will take reservations for laptops that are on Reserve. Reservations will be taken on a first come, first served basis.
In preparation for the exams laptops will not be available April 29-May 2 so that the Electronic Bluebook software can be loaded onto the laptops.
During the exam period, May 3 through May 11, laptops will be available only for Electronic Bluebook and there will be no overnight circulation of the laptops. Because of the limited number of loaner laptops available, we request that you do not reserve a laptop as back up for your personal laptop.
