About the Thormodsgard Law Library

The Thormodsgard Law Library is an active force in the educational life at the University of North Dakota School of Law, working in partnership with the law school to produce well-rounded legal professionals. The priority of the law library is to provide the collections and services necessary to support and strengthen the teaching, scholarship, research, and service programs of the UND School of Law students and faculty. As a state-assisted academic institution, the law library also serves as a source of legal information for the University of North Dakota community, the bench and bar, and the public, as resources permit. Our goal is to serve in accordance with the Ethical Principles of the American Association of Law Libraries.

The collection reflects the Core Collection as set forth by the American Bar Association and includes such resources as case reporters, statutes, constitutions, legislative process materials, administrative materials, restatements, treatises, periodicals, and selected non-legal resources. See Collection Development Policy.

The materials in the collection are accessed through ODIN, the online catalog, as well as through index, citator, and digest services maintained in the library.

A variety of electronic databases are available for law student and faculty research.

The Chester Fritz Library, which houses the main University of North Dakota library collection, is located near the School of Law, just across Centennial Drive.

The Thormodsgard Law Library is named after Olaf H. Thormodsgard, Dean of the University of North Dakota School of Law from 1933 to 1962.
