Welcome Back Law Students

Now that the winter break is over and classes have resumed, a quick reminder of services that the law library provides to support your success in law school.  A first step--if you haven't done this already--is to bookmark the law library's home page for easy access to library resources. The web address is:

Library Services:

Course Reserves is located behind the circulation desk.  Course material assigned by your professor can be checked out for two hour loans.  Another handy resource located behind the circulation desk is the study guides, these resources are useful as study aids, a supplement to your textbooks, or to introduce you to a legal issue. 

You can reserve a Study Room at the circulation desk or online on the law library's home page.

Reference Services: Have a legal question, can't locate an article, book or database, or have a citation question?  The reference staff is here to help you.  You can also send an email, use our Chat service or request an individual consultation with a librarian. 

Research Guides: Research guides are a subject-specific tool for quickly locating the databases, treatises, periodical indexes, or a book on your topic.  Why re-invent the wheel when you can begin your research with one of these handy guides?

Technology Services:  The library provides a wireless network, charging cords for your phone, computer terminals, printers, copiers, and scanners.  You can print from the library terminals or from your laptop.  For printing instructions, there's an instruction sheet available in the copy center on the 5th floor of the law library and instructions for wireless printing setup on the law library's Technology Services page. 

Welcome back!  Good luck with your studies.
