The Law Library is open to everyone. The public has access 12 hours per week (see Library Hours page) and attorneys who have been issued keys have access 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Library provides print resources for a Kansas-based practice and electronic resources including the Lexis on-line legal database. All Library users have free access to all of the Library's resources.
> Law Library Changes to WestlawNext: Beginning on June 1, 2013, the Law Library will change its provider of on-line legal research from Lexis to WestlawNext. The Library will endeavor to make the transition as uneventful as possible for our patrons.
> Underutilized Periodical Subscriptions Will Be Cancelled:
The Law Library is conducting an extensive re-evaluation of all the
journals, supplements, pocket parts, and other periodical publications
it receives, with an eye to reducing the acquisition of this material
to only those titles that are actually used by Library patrons.
