Establishing your library account

You can access your Library Account using your CNet ID and password. Your CNetID is a username that you select and will use to access most online services at the University of Chicago. If you don't know your CNet credentials (or need to change your password, etc.), visit University IT's CNet page, select the appropriate service, and complete the web forms.

As soon as you have a CNet ID, please go to the ID & Privileges Office in the Regenstein Library to obtain your Chicago card. You can set up your Library account then, or stop by the Reference Desk to get your library account set up.

If you arrive before you can claim your CNet ID, contact the Assistant Director for User Services or Connie Fleischer, Research Services Librarian, for assistance.

Course materials

There are three main methods for delivering course materials to students. These options include:

  • Course Textbooks: Send your textbook information to the Law School Registrar as far in advance as possible to make sure the bookstore will have enough copies.
  • Canvas: Use the Canvas learning management system (see courses.uchicago.edu) to disseminate electronic course materials to students.
    • The Library can supply links to licensed databases for articles, cases, or other readings. Send a copy of your syllabus to Connie Fleischer to request links and/or advice about copyright issues. 
  • Course Packet: Your faculty assistant can scan your selected readings and deliver them to the Law School Copy Center. Students purchase packets directly from the Copy Center. Your faculty assistant can work with D'Angelo Law Library staff to request copyright permissions for duplicating materials if necessary.
