Faculty Services Guide: WVU College of Law


The WVU Library catalog and interlibrary loan services are available to access books, interdisciplinary articles, and other materials. If a resource is not available at the WVU Law Library or online, the catalog record will indicate availability at other WVU Libraries (Book Express+) or through interlibrary loan (ILLiad).

WVU Law Faculty can grant RA's “proxy borrowing privileges,” which allows RA’s to check out books on a faculty member's behalf. See more detailed information on this service here

See instructions below for using the library catalog and ordering items through Book Express+ and ILLiad. Contact Jennifer Dubetz at with any questions or issues.
