In response to the COVID-19 virus and in accordance with Emory University Libraries, the Emory Law Archives will be closed to visitors beginning on Wednesday, March 18, 2020. During this period of closure, the ELA will continue to provide limited remote services, as we are able, including responding to research queries and holding research appointments remotely, but reproduction services will be limited and reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
1. Hours: The Emory Law Archives may be used during weekday reference hours only from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM, Monday through Friday.
2. Make a Request with the Archivist: If you have a question for the archives, please complete this form to schedule a research appointment.
3. Arrival: When you arrive at the law library, you will be asked to show a photo ID and sign our register so that we have a record of your visit.
4. Research Consultation: You may consult with research services staff about your specific research interests so that we can help direct you to the most relevant materials.
Researchers may request reproductions of materials in collections for use in personal research. The library will not scan materials if doing so would violate copyright law or donor restrictions, or if scanning risks damaging the materials. We will only scan items measuring 11x17 inches or less. The library also reserves the right to set limits on the amount of scanning it will undertake. There is a limit of 100 images per request, and 300 images per year, per researcher; our year runs from September 1 – August 31. The library charges fees for reproductions in order to offset the cost of producing the images. Due to copyright and intellectual property rights, we are unable to disseminate copies of born-digital materials.
