Wheat Law Library

Named for alumnus Douglas D. Wheat, KU Law class of 1974, and his wife, Laura, the law library occupies a central place in Green Hall and in the lives of law students. With its collection of more than 350,000 volumes, the library is an important legal research facility throughout the region. It supports the teaching program of the law school; its hallmark is excellent service to students and faculty. Law library faculty members teach in the lawyering program, serve as individual liaisons to lawyering small sections, provide research lectures in substantive classes, and offer courses in advanced legal research and advanced legal research special topics, and a Kansas Supreme Court Research Clinic. In addition to preparing subject research guides, they provide research assistance in person, by telephone, and by email. They are available and accessible to students.

Students find a rich collection of print and specialized electronic legal resources in the law library. It provides study space for individual students, work areas for group projects, and a designated quiet floor. Students have wireless access to the Internet. Numerous legal databases are available through the Wheat Law Library website, including Westlaw, Lexis, Hein Online, CALI, Making of Modern Law, Bloomberg BNA, Bloomberg Law, and specialized electronic resources. The KU Libraries’ 4.3 million volume collection and extensive interdisciplinary resources are also accessible on and off campus.
