Locating Materials in Regent Law Library

When you begin a cite check, the Regent University Online Catalog should be your FIRST stop!

The Online Catalog is a computerized database of materials—print, electronic, or multimedia—owned by Regent University.  It allows users to quickly ascertain the location and availability of books, periodicals, audiovisuals, and other material held by either the  University Library or the Law Library.

Searching the Catalog is pretty straightforward, but here are a few tips:

  • Use the Keyword search.
  • Pay close attention to the LOCATION! 
    • You must note the location to be able to determine WHICH library owns the item and WHERE the item is located within the specific library (for example, LAW GENERAL COLLECTION. See example below) 
      • The Law Library's collection is located on the third floor and fourth floor. 
      • The University Library's collection is located on the first two floors. The exact location depends on the call number.
      • Some law-related books may be in the University Library. As stated, be sure to note the location.
    • The two libraries have MANY locations. Some locations are not accessible to students (for example, the Law Library's fourth floor and special collections). 
      • Access Services Desk personnel will usually be able to assist you in obtaining materials.  If they cannot, don't hesitate to contact your Liaison or a Law Librarian.
