Document Delivery

The Law Library can provide copies of documents on request. Requestors must provide an exact citation; Law Library staff cannot conduct research.

To obtain copies by email, contact the Reference Desk at or call 916-874-6012 with a complete citation, and a Librarian will email you the document within 24 hours. Limit 5 documents per day, per requestor. This service is free if the requested document is available to us electronically.

For a nominal fee, Law Library staff will scan or photocopy sections of print materials and fax, mail, or email the copies to you. All requests must be paid for in advance. The Law Library can fax an invoice to the requestor, or credit card information can be taken over the phone.
