Questions about Privileges

If you have any questions about library privileges for RA's please contact our reference desk.

Obtaining an RA Card

As an RA, you receive special privileges in the library.  These may include:

  • being able to check out books under your faculty member's account;
  • receive additional printing credit to print out materials for your faculty member

To take advantage of these privileges, you need to first obtain an RA card. To obtain an RA card, you must fill out an RA card form

Once this form is complete, please bring it to the reference desk during our open hours and we will grant you a card:

You may then show this card to check out books and to receive additional print credit in the ISP office.

Extra Printing/Copying Credit

If your professor asks you to print out or copy a large number of documents, you can request additional credit be added to your student account to cover this cost. To request this allowance, simply show your RA card at the Law School Help Desk office which is located on the Lower Level of the law school building. Credit is added $10 at a time and can be requested more than once.
