Library Use at Other Universities

Apr 27, 2018

A number of academic law libraries throughout the United States allow faculty members from other law schools to use their facilities.  Similarly, the university library systems of many universities provide use benefits to University of Iowa faculty members because of Iowa’s membership in the Big Ten Academic Alliance (formerly the Committee on Institutional Cooperation) and the Association of Research Libraries.   

If you have travel plans this summer and will need to use the libraries of other universities, please contact Amy Koopmann at amy-koopmann@uiowa.edu in advance for more information or for assistance making arrangements with specific libraries.
