The law library provides printing resources to facilitate research, teaching, and student learning, within the guidelines and policies of the university (UNC) and copyright law. Under UNC policy (http://help.unc.edu/help/unc-chapel-hill-network-acceptable-use-policy/):
Users may not engage in the unauthorized copying, distributing, altering or translating of copyrighted materials, software, music or other media without the express permission of the copyright holder or as otherwise allowed by law.
The library does not charge for downloading or emailing documents. Downloading from electronic databases may also be restricted by the terms of licensing agreements. UNC fees and printing limitations are outlined below.
Carolina Law provides students with $40 per semester for printing to the Carolina Law student printers in the upper level of the rotunda and the rumpus room.
Carolina Law Students receive a $40 printing allotment per semester from CCI which is included in the student fees paid by all undergraduate, graduate, and professional students.
Carolina Law Students may print to the Carolina Law student printers in the upper level of the rotunda and the rumpus room and to the CCI printers in room 3048 of the Law Library from their laptops.
LexisNexis provides free printing for Carolina Law Students. The printer is located near the rumpus room outside of the student organization offices. Contact your LexisNexis representative for additional information or if the printer requires service.
Citing a significant decrease in the use of printers after the release of WestlawNext and the substantial environmental impact of the program, Westlaw will no longer provide printer service to law schools. Please see this description of alternative document delivery options available on WestlawNext and Westlaw Classic (including folders, download and email).
The law library has four microform machines to read microfilm reels or microfiche.
Machines are on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd floors of the library.
