Course Reserves - Textbooks and Study Aids

For the Spring 2021 term, due to COVID-19 related restrictions, the Rodino Center will not be circulating any print textbooks from the Course Reserve Collection. About half of the textbooks are available in electronic format. Check the Course Reserves catalog to confirm what is available in electronic format. Many Carolina Academic Press and Aspen/Wolters Kluwer titles are available in digital format. 

If the title is available in electronic format, it may be limited to one user at a time. If it is on the Ebsco platform, it is recommended that you use the EPUB Full Text link to read online rather than downloading. Downloading will tie up access for seven days. Reading the EPUB online only ties up the book while the publication is open. 

We recommend purchasing or renting electronic versions of textbooks for the 2020-2021 academic year. If purchasing print textbooks, save receipts in case the publishers allow you to convert to electronic format mid-semester, if needed.

Check the following sites for textbook rentals (which are often less expensive than purchasing):

Selected study aids and assigned textbooks are available in West Academic Online Study Aids.

Some publishers will allow free, online access for a limited period of time at the beginning of the term; this may prove helpful until physical books are received. 

  • West Academic usually provides free, 14-day online access with any purchase. Contact West Academic if you don’t have an email that contains instructions for access. You can check to see if this is the case for your title of interest: If you purchased from Amazon or another vendor, contact West Academic support and provide proof of purchase to see if you can have electronic, temporary access. 
  • Wolters Kluwer posts content for the first chapter or two for some of their textbooks. Students should check the textbook on the Wolters Kluwer website. Most Wolters Kluwer textbooks have online access as well. 
  • If the publication is a Carolina Academic Press or Aspen/Wolters Kluwer title, double check Course Reserves to see if we have an e-version.

Please contact for questions.

Requesting, Borrowing and Returning Rodino Center Materials

Rodino Center Print Materials

Non-reserve print materials from our collection are available to be borrowed by Seton Hall Law students, faculty, administrators and staff.

  • Please do not pull your own books from the collection. 
  • Locate the item you wish to borrow in the Rodino Center Catalog.  Under "Check Availability" click "Request Item".  If you have not already signed into OKTA, you will be prompted to sign in using your SHU credentials.  Fill in the form with the relevant information.
  • Items ready for pick up will be available at the entrance to the Rodino Center on the cart labelled "Book Pick Up".
  • You will be notified via email when the books you have requested are available for pickup.  Because Library staff are only able to pull books from the stacks M-F 10:30-3:30, it is unlikely that you will receive an email notification on the same day the request is placed.
  • We encourage you to quarantine items at home before use. Information about quarantine procedures will be included with your item. 
  • If you need assistance locating an item in our catalog or in a database, please email
