Remote Services for Students and Faculty

Research & Instruction

The Law Library will continue to offer assistance with research and instruction using our remote resources.

Reference Librarians will be available Monday-Friday, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM, to answer questions via email at: lawref@law.sc.edu or via the Law Library Text Chat service.

If you have any questions about library services while you are off-campus, please contact us at lawref@law.sc.edu and we will answer you promptly during our reference hours.

Electronic Resources

Many Law Library and UofSC Libraries resources may be accessed remotely using your UofSC log-in credentials (the username and password used for your University email account).

E-books and other online resources can also be located through the Law Library's online catalog. Using an Advanced Search can narrow your search results to include only e-books, only e-journals, or other online-only resources.

For assistance using electronic resources, please contact lawref@law.sc.edu and we will answer promptly during our reference hours (Monday-Friday, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM).
