Can I order a book to be held for me in the Law Library Reading Room in advance of my visit?
If you have an active Library of Congress reader identification card, you may access the Library of Congress Catalog and order most items in the law classification to be delivered to the Law Library Reading Room delivery shelves in advance of your visit. Items will be held on the delivery shelves for 48 hours and returned to the stacks if not picked up. However, librarians will not fulfill telephone, email, or Ask-a-Librarian requests for materials to be delivered in advance of your visit.
