The Stetson University College of Law libraries in Gulfport and Tampa support the research efforts of students, faculty, and staff. 

The libraries are a significant part of the Stetson University College of Law. The combined collections of statutes, court reports, journals and treatises, in a variety of formats, is above the median size of academic law libraries in the United States. The facilities and collections have been enhanced by major gifts by alumni and friends.

The libraries feature extensive electronic resources, abundant study space for individuals and small groups, and both wireless and network internet access.

Any requests sent to Ms. Macys outside of these business hours will be addressed during the next business day.

Detailed information about study rooms is available on this webpage. Click on Room Reservations. The Library will be operating up to the seating capacity required for proper social distancing and the library staff will keep the occupancy count. Library staff will greet students when entering the building for purposes of the seating count. If the library reaches the maximum seating, staff will notify patrons that access to the library will be temporarily delayed. (We appreciate your patience and understanding.)

Students must wear a mask in common areas, including the restrooms (it is optional while seating at carrels or study rooms for single use).  If all agree, two or fewer vaccinated people can meet together within study rooms, with four or fewer in the larger rooms. The use of mask is also optional while seating alone in an open area table, while properly distancing.

Most of the library resources are available online (search our databases). Still, students enrolled in online courses will be able to use the library in person if needed or may contact the reference librarians for assistance in obtaining materials.
