Currently, the Dee J. Kelly Law Library is open to only the Texas A&M School of Law community (students, faculty, staff, and former students).
While in the Law Library, these patrons are required to wear a mask and to practice “social distancing," sitting one person per table or one person per study room.
Please note that there is hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes at the Circulation Desk and throughout the Library.
More information regarding Texas A&M University's guidance on COVID-19 is available here.

As long as the law library remains staffed in-person, we can continue to check out books and purchase new ones for the collection. Requests for books from other libraries via interlibrary loan may be limited in the foreseeable future. If you are interested in books or articles you think might be print-only, please still ask! We may be able to acquire or borrow them digitally for you.
