The Law Library purchases law-related DVDs, videotapes, and audiotapes. It also receives a videotape of most Law School events. All DVDs, videotapes, and audiotapes are cataloged and included in the online catalog.
Study carrels are located on each stack level. Carrels may be used by all patrons and cannot be reserved. No personal materials, including books, laptop computers, notes, pens, etc., should be left unattended. The Law Library is not responsible for the security of materials left unattended. Any personal materials found in the carrels or on the tables will be taken to campus security in Preston Hall.
The fax machine in the Law Library is available for interlibrary loan use and for use by faculty and law review members for Law School business. Faculty and law review members who wish to send or receive faxes at the Law Library should call the Circulation Desk to ensure its availability.
Law students may fax documents from the Law Library. The charge is $3.00 for the first three pages, $1.00 per page thereafter, paid in advance. No international faxes will be sent. Incoming faxes for students will not be accepted.
A fax machine for use by the Pace community and members of the public is available in the Document Services office, located on the 3rd floor of the Aloysia Building, when that office is open. Students may receive faxes for free and can send faxes for a fee of 50¢ per page for domestic transmission and $3.00 per page for faxing abroad. The fax number at Document Services is (914) 422-4101. Students who expect to receive a fax should call Document Services, at extension 44055, to ensure the fax machine's availability and to arrange pickup of the material.
Group study rooms
Use of the group study rooms is restricted to current Pace Law students and faculty. Twelve study rooms are located on the second floor of the Glass Building (Rooms 201, 207, 208, 209, 210, 211, 212, 213, 214, 215, 216, and 217). Groups of three or more may reserve the rooms at the Circulation Desk for three-hour time periods. Reservations may be made three days in advance. Each group of three or more may sign up for up to one three-hour period per day.
Photocopiers are located on the Law Library's main floor (level 3) and on the ground floor (level 1). The charge is 15¢ per page if paid for by cash, and 10¢ per page if paid for by copy card. Patrons are expected to abide by the Copyright Law (Title 17 U.S.C.) when making photocopies.
Pace Law students have first priority in using the library photocopy machines.
A copy card vending machine is located on the main floor (stack level 3). Money may be added to copy cards at any copier that has a "card acceptor" slot.
Use of the Law Library is reserved for those doing legal research. A quiet atmosphere, conducive to research and study, will be maintained. Seating in the Glass Building lobby and in the lounge area on the main level of the Library is available for socializing and talking.
Books from the stacks may be used anywhere in the Library. However, because the Law Library is a research library, books and research materials must be readily available to its patrons. We ask our patrons to reshelve their own books immediately after use.
Restrooms and water fountain
Restrooms and a water fountain are located on the main floor (stack level 3) across from the Reference Desk. Both restrooms are ADA compliant.
All books in the Law Library are treated to prevent their unauthorized removal. The security system triggers a lock on the gate at the exit preventing any person carrying a library book from exiting the library. This protects the library from theft and prevents inadvertent removal of materials that may only be used within the library.
NOTE: This system cannot desensitize books. Even if you have permission to remove a book from the Library, it must not be carried through the gate. It must be passed around the detection gate by a Circulation Assistant. Never attempt to rush or run through the gate. If you do and the gate locks, you could be injured. Be aware that some electronic IDs trigger the gate to lock.
Telephones and cell phones
There is a courtesy phone located near the Library entrance for on campus and intercampus calls. All other telephones in the Library are for staff use only.
Use of cell phones is limited to the student lounge area on the main floor of the Library. Beepers and cell phones should be set on vibrate mode.
