The Center provides a free ILL service for law school faculty and law students. If the Center does not own the legal research material(s) you desire (books and/or journal articles), we will attempt to secure the materials from another library. Remember to allow time (1-2 weeks) for delivery of material.

Additionally, you may request titles directly from the Allegheny County Law Library to be shipped to DCLI via courier. Depending on the time of the request, delivery may take 1-2 days. Materials may be used in the library or checked out.

Please contact Ms. McBride (412-396-5017, mcbride@duq.edu) for more information on ILL or the courier service.
