Library Services for Alumni

The George W. Hopper Law Library encourages University of Wyoming College of Law alumni to return to the library to use our print and electronic resources on site. 

Register at the circulation desk to check out library print resources.  Our collection is accessible through our catalog, WebHopper. Our treatises, legal periodicals, and leisure materials may be checked out for up to four weeks. Reserves and audio visual materials may be checked out for a limited time.

For online materials, take a seat at a reference computer to access legal research databases such as Westlaw Campus Research, Lexis Academic, HeinOnline, and others from our databases webpage.  Printing is available on the printer in the reference area but limited to short print runs. Larger electronic documents can be downloaded or emailed for home use. You may also use your laptop to connect to many of our library databases using our wireless access.  Just enter in a valid email address when prompted by the wireless network.
