NH Law Library
The Law Library will be closed to foot traffic due to asbestos abatement starting November 1st. We expect to be closed for at least three weeks. Law librarians will be available by phone (603-271-3777), email (firstname.lastname@example.org), or mail to answer your reference questions. The book stacks will be completely inaccessible so no borrowing or Interlibrary Loan requests can be accepted. The public access computers will also be offline, but you can use Westlaw at one of the four public libraries: Derry, Littleton, Portsmouth, and Dover with Westlaw access or sign up for Westlaw Patron Remote for Pro Se/Non-Attorneys. Or you can email us with document requests. More information about the public libraries and Westlaw Remote is here: https://courts-state-nh-us.libguides.com/nhlawlibrary.
