During all hours when the Law Library is closed, LAW, SIA, and LL.M. students, faculty, and staff may use their Penn State ID cards to access the Law Library. To enter the Law Library, slide your PSU ID through the swipe card readers outside of the main door to the Library.

Propping the Law Library doors open is not permitted and will result in an audible alarm and notification to local police authorities.

Personal Property

All users should protect their personal property from theft by assuring that valuables are not left unattended in the Law Library. Neither the Law Library nor the Law School will be responsible for lost or stolen property.  Lost and Found in the Katz Building is located in the Business office in the basement, Rm 009.  Any items left on the library circulation desk overnight are turned into Lost and Found immediately. 

EMERGENCY EXITS

All users of the Law Library are to enter and exit through the library's main entrance only unless otherwise authorized. Other library doors are not to be used except in emergencies. An alarm will sound whenever these doors are opened.
