ShareLaw Ceases

ShareLaw, the combined catalog of 6 major law school libraries (including the UW Gallagher Law Library), is being discontinued for financial reasons.

Using this catalog, UWLS faculty, students, and staff have been able to directly request books that were not available here at Gallagher. A fast delivery service and the richness of the participating libraries made ShareLaw an appealing option and we are certainly sorry to see it end.

Please note these important deadlines:
  • May 14: last day to request or renew items through ShareLaw
  • June 15: last day to return items received through ShareLaw. You will be billed for items returned after this date.
How do you know if you have a ShareLaw book? Look for the white bookband with the word "ShareLaw"on the cover.

We hope that you have benefited from this service. However, any books that you requested through ShareLaw may also be requested through the Law Library's interlibrary loan service. The Reference and Resource Sharing librarians can help you identify and request materials you need for your research.
