Libraries and Resources
Alumni have lifetime access to the Law School’s Arthur W. Diamond Law Library located in Jerome L. Greene Hall on the east side of Columbia’s Morningside Campus. Alumni can access all materials while on site (electronic resources are only available through public terminals in the library). The Law Library also has a Firm Services Division that offers document delivery, so check to see if this is a resource available to your firm. Please use the links below to find out about user privileges for specific libraries. For more information about the Law School’s library, please call 212-854-3922.
While alumni do not need an ID card for access, it may be helpful to get one particularly if utilizing the library during off hours. To get an ID card, visit the Library Information Office in Butler Library. You can find all the details at http://library.columbia.edu/services/lio.html. The card will cost $5 and you will need a photo ID.
Alumni also have access to a number of Columbia University libraries on campus and online.

There will be no official registration to reflect this arrangement with the Office of the Registrar.
