Resources for Students During COVID-19

A collection of resources for students.


Welcome! The Law Library, together with the Levin Center, have put together these resources for students to use while away from campus and taking online classes during the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope you find them useful!

You can reach the Levin Center by navigating to their website and scrolling down to Contact Us.

You can reach the Law Library by emailing us (, calling us (650-725-0800), dropping into our Virtual reference office, or making an appointment with us (see below).

Please reach out if you have any questions, suggestions, reactions, anything! We are here to help.

What this means for you:

  • You can email a reference librarian at for reference assistance.
    • We're staffed 9am to 6pm PST, Monday to Thursday, and 9am to 5pm PST on Friday.
  • You can drop into our Zoom virtual reference office anytime during our open hours.
  • You can schedule an appointment with a reference librarian! From our homepage, scroll down to "Meet with a Librarian." Once you've set up an appointment, we'll be in touch with a Zoom meeting link. 
  • You can arrange to pick up a physical book we have in our collection by clicking the Request button in the catalog.
  • You can request a scan from a physical book by filling out this form.
  • You can still access all of our online resources. (Click "Library Services for Remote Users" on the left...or just click that link.)
  • You can request scans of book chapters or articles that we don't own through inter-library loan (although we are unable to request or borrow physical materials, such as books or microform).

This information is current as of April 7, 2021. We intend to keep this as up-to-date as possible, but in the event of any changes, the library website will be updated first - so check there too.
