Access for Individuals with Disabilities
The University of Idaho Law Library is committed to providing accessible services and resources for persons with disabilities. The Menard Law Building in Moscow has an automatic push-button door at the northeast and northwest entrances. The northeast entrance has an elevator with access to all floors. The ILJLC in Boise has an automatic push-button door at the east and west entrances. There is an elevator at the center of the north side of the building with access to all floors.
Members of the public - attorneys, judges, paralegals, residents of Idaho, and the public in general -are welcome to use library resources for their research needs. As a Federal Depository Library, the law libraries provide public access to government documents as guaranteed by public law (Title 44 United States Code). Contact information for both libraries is here.

The Moscow location has seating on all three floors for library patrons. There are also student carrels, which are reserved for use and assigned to law students. Further questions about carrels can be directed to the Student Bar Association. The Boise location also has available seating on the east and west sides.
In Moscow there are 10 study rooms located on the 2nd floor of the library, including a family-friendly study room. Other rooms in both locations are also available for group study. Students, faculty, and staff can reserve a room through the College of Law.
Reserved student carrels are located on the ground floor and second floor of the library in Moscow. Carrel rules for Moscow can be found here. Carrels in the Boise location are located in the Reading Room and in the library. Carrels in Boise are on a first come, first serve basis. If the carrel is empty, it is available; belongings left on carrels will be removed and relocated. Lockers are available for storage in the Reading Room. Questions about carrels and lockers in Boise can be directed to the Director of Student Affairs.
There are university computer labs available for University of Idaho affiliates (with university-issued credentials) in both locations. In Moscow, the computer lab is downstairs in the library near the student lounge. In Boise, the computer lab is located in the Reading Room.

In Boise, there are four public-access computers in the library, with print capabilities. In both locations, there is a scanner (in Moscow near the circulation desk, in Boise in the Reading Room). The scanners can email or save to a portable flash drive free of charge, or can print for a fee ($0.10 per page in Moscow, $0.15 per page in Boise). There is also a self-service copier in the Boise library; copies are $0.15 per page.
A microfiche reader is located on the Moscow library’s ground floor. Microfiche copies can be emailed or saved to a portable (flash) drive for free, or can be printed for $0.10 per page.
