Most materials owned by the Library are listed in our computer catalog, URSUS. URSUS is the on-line catalog for the University of Maine System libraries. URSUS provides access to the cataloged material in the Library as well as most of the major libraries in Maine, including the University of Maine System, Bowdoin, Bates, and Colby Colleges, and the Law and Legislative Reference Library.
Restricted databases are not included in the catalog.
Most Library materials may not leave the law school building, although some items can be checked out to a student's carrel or a faculty member's office. Classified treatises are the only materials that can leave the building. Jump to loan periods and policies.
Members of the general public must first complete a patron registration form at the Circulation Desk to borrow classified treatises.
Borrowed materials are subject to recall at any time.
When you need material held by another library in the University of Maine System, use the Request function located at the top of the page in URSUS.
For material not available through URSUS, Garbrecht Law Library provides interlibrary loan service for University of Maine Law School students, faculty, staff and members of the legal community. Borrowing items from outside the URSUS system can take 2-4 weeks to complete, so please allow processing time.
If you still have questions contact the Reference Desk.
