Info for Non-Emory Patrons
The Emory Law Library is primarily for the use of Emory faculty, staff, students, alumni and members of the Atlanta Bar. Please note that the computer lab and printers on level 2 (main floor of the library) are restricted to members of Emory Law community; faculty, staff and students. Terminals are available on each floor for checking the online catalog. There are live Ethernet ports throughout the building and guests may sign out Ethernet cords from the Circulation Desk to use with their laptops.
Students & Faculty of Other Georgia Schools: Students and faculty with a valid university ID from Georgia State, Georgia Tech, and University of Georgia may use the library's collections as well as borrow materials. In order to apply for borrowing privileges you will need to present your home institution ID and fill out an application at our Circulation Desk during the hours your home library is open. Borrowing privileges are conditional on approval from your library. For other Atlanta area schools in the ARCHE consortial group, you will need to provide an InterLibrary Use card (which can be obtained from your home library's reference staff) prior to your visit and fill out a registration form at our Circulation Desk in order to borrow. Borrowing privileges are conditional on approval from your library.
Members of the Bar & the Legal Community: These patrons may make use of our library's collections, but may not borrow. Firms may contact InterLibrary Loan in order to borrow materials.
Law Students from Outside of Georgia: For students who will be visiting Atlanta for summer or a vacation and wish to use the library, we ask that you have your home institution's library contact us to verify for us that you are an enrolled law student in good standing. This information can be directed to the Access Services librarian, MacMillan Law Library, 1301 Clifton Road, Atlanta GA 30322 (404 727 8211).
General Public: Members of the general public may use the library's U.S. and E.U. documents collections any time the library is open before the doors lock in the evening or by prior appointment with the government documents librarian.
Groups and tours: The library does not offer guided tours, but groups from other law institutions may visit the library. In order to maintain a pleasant and orderly learning environment and to avoid scheduling conflicts, we require reservations for all guests who plan to use the library with groups larger than five people. To schedule a time for your group please call the Circulation Desk (404 727 6824) or the Reference Desk (404 727 6826).
