Library facilities


Study room 214 on the second floor of the Gerber Glass Law Center is equipped with a DVD/VCR and monitor. This room may be reserved by groups or individuals who need to view videotapes or DVDs. Headphones are available at the Circulation Desk; they may be used for listening to audiotapes in the Law Library.

The Law Library purchases law-related DVDs, videotapes, and audiotapes. All DVDs, videotapes, and audiotapes are cataloged and included in the online catalog.

Cell phones and telephones

Cell phones should be silenced while in the library.  Cell phone conversations are only permitted in the study rooms and lobby of the building. There are cell phone chargers available for check-out at the Circulation Desk. A charging station is available in the open study area on the third floor of Gerber Glass. A charging locker is available in the open study area on the second floor of Gerber Glass.

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.


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.

Restrooms and Water Fountains

Restrooms and a water fountain are located on the main floor (stack level 3) across from the Reference Desk. There are additional restrooms and water fountains on the ground floor and the second floor of the Gerber Glass Law Center. All restrooms are ADA compliant.

Security Gate

All books in the Law Library are treated to prevent their unauthorized removal.  The security system triggers an alarm that sounds if a person exits carrying a library book. 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.

Space & Resources

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 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. Please do not reshelve books.  Reshelving trucks are placed throughout the library for items you no longer need.

Vending Machines

Vending machines with beverages and snacks are located on the second floor of the Gerber Glass Law Center.
