Book Return Bins

We have two return bins at the Law Library: at the service desk, and just outside the library entrance doors.

LAWSTK books may also be returned at any other Western library.

Lost and Found

Lost something? Found someone's something? The Law Library has a lost and found box at the service desk. Don't forget to check with Campus Police as well.


The Law Library has one colour photocopier/printer/scanner, which is located on the main floor of the library. A PaperCut account is required to copy, scan, or print from any of the Library's networked machines. PaperCut credits may be purchased in one, five, ten, or twenty dollar amounts at the service desk or online through your PaperCut account. Please visit our Print, Copy, Scan page for more information.
