Services for Law Faculty: Document Delivery

Books & Copies * Routings * Films * Interlibrary Loan

Corinne Griffiths (lawcirc@bu.edu, x3-8879) provides document delivery services to law faculty.  Terri Geiger provides services when Rebecca is unavailable.

Most copy requests will be filled electronically by sending you PDFs or links to reliable sources.  If you would prefer to receive a print document, please indicate this when placing your request. 

Extensive copying, scanning and printing of library materials and microforms should be done by faculty research assistants or administrative assistants.  Copying, scanning and printing of non-library materials should be done by faculty research assistants or administrative assistants.  Copy cards for your staff are available at the Pappas circulation desk and scanners are located in Pappas.

Books and photocopies from the Law, Mugar, and Theology libraries are usually delivered within one business day.  Materials retrieved from the Science and Engineering, Educational Resources, and the Pardee Management libraries are usually delivered within two business days. 

Please call Rebecca or the reference desk staff (x3-3151) for rush requests.

FedEx Office can make multiple copies of course materials that cannot be posted to your Blackboard Leaern site.  The library can provide faculty with one clean copy of articles, cases, etc., to send to FedEx Office.  Your program coordinator or Martha Totten (mtotten@bu.edu, x8-5374) can provide information on requesting copies via FedEx Office.

Faculty members are responsible for obtaining any necessary copyright permission(s).  Your program coordinator or Charlotte Glicksman can assist you with this process.      

Routings

On request, the library will route periodicals, looseleaf highlights that are not available electronically, and newsletters to faculty members as soon as the library has processed them.  Routed materials generally come from the non-circulating collection and are checked out for two week use.  Materials routed to more than one faculty member are especially sensitive to routing delays.  Please contact Terri Geiger (tgeiger@bu.edu, x3-8881) or Russell Sweet (rlsweet@bu.edu, x3-8877) to be placed on the routing lists. 

Many current titles are available electronically on Westlaw, Lexis, Bloomberg Law or other electronic databases.  Your librarian liaison can assist you in locating and linking to these resources.

Films for Classroom Use

The library owns a small collection of films for classroom use.  These films may be found in the library catalog.  The B.U. Krasker Film/Video collection consists of over 18,500 film and video titles for classroom use in current University classes.  Their catalog can be searched here.  Please contact Corinne Griffiths (lawcirc@bu.edu, x3-8879) for assistance in obtaining movies held here or elsewhere for classroom use.  Law audiovisual support for showing films may be obtained by contacting Law A/V (lawav@bu.edu, x3-3162).
