The David A. Clarke School of Law, located in building 52 on the Van Ness campus maintains its own library, The Mason Law Library, located in Building 39.

The nine member libraries share circulating materials with each other and have a common library catalog.
You can use the catalog to look for materials in all of the libraries' collections at one time, or you can limit your search to any one of the libraries.
