Services to the Public

Borrowing

You are welcome to use materials in the library, but we do not lend material to the public.

You may scan a page and email it to yourself free of charge using the scanners in Room 120A, near the Circulation desk.

Public Access Computers

Computers with internet access for research and academic use are available on the Law Library’s first floor. If you are using these computers for other purposes, you may be asked to log off. There are no printers attached to these computers, but material may be emailed or downloaded to your own storage devices.

Reference Assistance

Reference assistance is available from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday, when the library is open. Reference librarians cannot give legal advice, but can help you find material to research your legal issues. Contact the Reference desk by phone [803-777-5902], by e-mail at lawref@law.sc.edu, or in person.

Legal Assistance

There are organizations that can help you locate low or no cost legal assistance if you qualify. Most legal services providers specialize in certain areas of law and may not be able to take on a particular type of case. For more information, please contact them directly. For a list of these organizations and other self-help material, see our Circuit Riders self-help page.
