FIU Law Library Visiting Researcher Services

Visiting Researchers have many benefits through the FIU Law Library.

Access Services

Visiting Researchers must visit the Circulation Desk after receiving their FIU One Card and FIU credentials. The FIU Law Library circulation staff will use their FIU One Card to establish a Visiting Researcher account with the Library. For more information, Visiting Researchers should contact Pushya Veeramachaneni, Head of Access Services & Outreach.

Visiting Researchers are afforded the same borrowing, ILL, ICL, and circulation services as FIU Law Faculty. See our Policies for more information. For example:

  • items from other libraries are delivered by circulation staff
  • extended study room check out periods, as needed and available
  • extended laptop check out periods, as needed and available
  • printing and copying support services – check at circulation desk

Resource Services

Visiting Researchers can use and checkout any print materials in the FIU Law Library in accordance with the item’s circulation status, limited only to the length of the Visiting Researcher’s stay at FIU Law.

All of our eresources are available to Visiting Researchers. Bloomberg Law, Lexis Advance and WestlawNext passwords are provided to Visiting Researchers when they register with the FIU Law Library at the Circulation Desk. Visiting Researchers should consult our guides for additional information on our eresources. For example:

  • eresource training and support
  • Law Library tours

Research Support

The FIU Law Library librarians are here to assist Visiting Researchers in their scholarly needs. Each librarian has expertise in different areas of law. Visiting Researchers are encouraged to consult our directory and contact us with any legal research assistance query.
