UCLAW Express: Our Services

Photocopying, Document Delivery and Interlibrary Loan services available to the public.

Document Delivery Services

You may request copies of UCLA Law Library materials and copies of materials from any other library on campus. Only one copy of copyrighted material per user may be supplied. Normal turnaround time for filling requests (exclusive of delivery time where applicable) is 24 hours.

Rush and Same Day Services

For an additional charge, UCLAW Express will process orders on a rush basis.  Rush orders for Law Library materials will be held at the service point or emailed within two hours of receiving the request (turnaround time for rush orders for non-Law Library materials is three hours). In addition, UCLAW Express offers a same day option: for an intermediate fee, requests placed before noon will be processed by 5 p.m. the same day.

Other Services

Law Library Book Loans

UCLAW Express also offers loans of circulating Law Library materials to registered users. Book loans will be sent through first class mail on the same day the order is received.  Express mailing (recommended) is available for billing to your own express mail account.  The advantages of using this service over our hold service is that you need not come in person to pick up the book and you don't need a UCLA Library Card. Borrowers are responsible for materials until they are returned to the Law Library. Overdue and unreturned books are subject to late fees and replacement charges outlined in the Fee Schedule. 


Book Retrieval & Hold

We also provide a "book retrieval & hold" service.  We will retrieve materials from the Law Library Stacks and place them on hold at the Circulation Desk within two hours.  Please be aware that when using this "hold" service, circulating materials can only be checked out by users who possess a valid UCLA library card and present it in person when picking up materials.  For information on obtaining a UCLA Library card visit the "Library Cards" Web page.

Delivery Methods

  • Email (photocopies only)
  • Express Mail (Charged to addressee's account)
  • U.S. Mail ($1.00 per item--this is not recommended as we cannot guarantee delivery date. U.S. mail must first go through UCLA campus mail which adds additional time to the delivery).
