The Library prepares a monthly list of Recent Acquisitions (new books).

UC Davis LL.M students may request to borrow new books at the Circulation desk.
The Library maintains an archive of Law faculty publications and exhibits selected faculty publications in the corridor leading to the Mabie Library Lobby. Each faculty member is asked to select a representative sample of his/her publications to include in the exhibit.

Materials that are required and recommended by law professors for a specific course are located in the Library's Reserve area, located behind the Circulation Desk. Course Reserve materials are arranged in alphabetical order by professor's last name. To see what has been placed on Course Reserve or when specific items are due, consult the library's catalog, MORT, by entering the course name or the professor's last name.
Students may track current developments in the law and other areas of interest via e-mail alerts. Reference librarians can provide assistance setting up the search queries to activate these automatic searches in Lexis and Westlaw or activating table of contents e-mails for specific publications from other vendors such as Bloomberg Law. Also view CILP (a weekly index to legal periodicals) from the law library’s front page, which is updated regularly.

A select number of legal newspapers are available in the Darling Reading Room, as well as in the Reserves area.

The card also provides access to the Main Reading Room. The cards, which will have photo identification, are used to check materials out of the Library collection.
Found items are held at the Circulation Desk for a reasonable time. Items are then turned over to the Law Student Association or, if valuable, to the campus police.
