The primary function of the Gabriel and Matilda Barnett Information Technology Center and The Asa V. Call Law Library is to support the teaching and research activities of the USC Law community.
The Law Library has a large collection of legal and legal-related print materials and databases.
Library Limited Access
The Asa V. Call Law Library observes a limited access policy at all times. Due to the Law Library's academic focus and limited resources, members of the general public should contact the LA Law Library for assistance with legal research.
In addition, the library is observing further limited access until the end of the spring semester. Access is currently limited to USC law students, USC faculty and staff, and current members of the USC community with a demonstrable need to use our legal resources.

The Law Library will be closed for renovations during the summer of 2018 from Wednesday, May 15 until approximately Monday, August 13. Many of our services will continue to be available throughout the renovations, however. For additional information, please contact us at 213-740-2825.
