Visitor Policy and Resources for the Public

Visitor Policy

The Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law Library is a research library and is not open to the general public. With more than 400 individuals enrolled at Campbell Law School, our library professionals must first focus on the study and research needs of our students.

  • Members in good standing of the North Carolina Bar, with proof of membership, can access the library at any time during regular hours of operation. See our Attorney Services guide for more information.
     
  • Campbell University graduate and undergraduate students and alumni may also use the library by appointment for legal research. Contact Professor Olivia Weeks (919-865-5870 / weekso@campbell.edu) for an appointment.
     
  • Students from other colleges or universities may use the library by scheduling a time to utilize certain resources. Contact Professor Olivia Weeks (919-865-5870 / weekso@campbell.edu) for an appointment.

Our reference staff is happy to assist with reference questions; however, the library cannot provide legal advice or discuss legal theories of pending cases.

Conduct in the Library

Library policies are not intended as barriers to the use of the collection. Rather these policies are in place to facilitate its use by making the collection available to all users without unreasonable delay. Most rules are based on common sense and equitable principles and are derived from a commitment to make the library an environment suitable for reading, study, and activities in support of student and faculty research.

The library is a place of quiet study; all patrons are asked to keep their noise to a minimum. It is the responsibility of each student to maintain a quiet environment. The student commons is available outside of the library for socializing between classes.

So that all patrons may benefit from the law library's resources and environment:

  • Library materials may not be removed without proper checkout or authorization by a librarian.
  • Renew or return library materials when they are due.
  • Do not "squirrel" books in a carrel or in a study room for exclusive use.
  • Do not mutilate or damage library materials by marking, underlining, removing pages or portions of pages, removing or defacing bindings, or in any other way damage or deface library materials.
  • Be respectful and courteous to the library staff and other library patrons.
  • Do not sleep on or otherwise inappropriately use library furniture.
  • Do not cause disturbances or engage in any behavior that interferes with library activities.
  • Dress appropriately.

For the protection of the library, its contents, and staff:

  • Patrons are forbidden to go in unauthorized areas of the library, remain in the library after closing or when requested to leave during emergency situations or drills.
  • Do not open emergency exits except in emergency situations.
  • Do not vandalize or deface library furniture or equipment.
