Course Materials

The Law Library handles copyright permissions of course materials. This includes print course packs, materials that are distributed during the semester, and materials to be loaded onto Blackboard pages. Course materials, regardless of the number of pages, must be submitted directly to the Law Library for copyright clearance. Once the course materials are submitted to the library, a determination will be made as to whether copyright permission is required. In order to manage this process in a timely fashion, documents are to be submitted in sufficient time to have the materials checked, photocopied and available to students well before they will be needed. Submit course documents to or call 410-706-0784. Once permission is granted for the materials, the library can also help facilitate the delivery of materials to the Copy Center for duplication.

Your library liaison is available to help you locate appropriate readings for specific topics, to obtain any materials not in the library, and to assist with questions that you may have regarding linking to articles on your course Blackboard page.

Library Reserves

While linking to materials on Blackboard is the preferred method for distributing materials, the library will place course readings on reserve in the Reading Room. To place an item on reserve, please contact Stephanie Bowe (410-706-0783). Extra copies of textbooks assigned for the semester are also located the Law Library Reading Room. These are a courtesy of the Library, but are not intended to serve as a replacement for students purchasing their own copy of the required text.
