Law Library Reading Period and Finals Announcements

OASP and Sum & Substance- Circulation Changes

The circulation period and overdue fines for OASP and Sum and Substance materials will change for Reading Period and Finals. Starting on April 21, these materials will circulate for only 1 day (instead of 72 hours) and no renewals will be allowed.  Overdue fines for these materials will increase from $1.00 per day to $5.00 per day.

These changes provide access to the materials for a greater number of students. If you have questions regarding these changes please stop by the Circulation Desk and ask to speak with Ms. Nevins or a librarian.

Don’t forget…you have access to West Study Aids on Westlaw!  See this posting for more information.

Shhh! Law Students are Studying

It is the time of the semester when students are writing papers and preparing for exams.  Please be courteous of your fellow students and help control the noise level throughout the Law Library.  Please put your cell phones and pagers on vibrate and conduct quiet phone conversations either outside of the Law Library or near the Law Library restrooms.  If you listen to any form of audio, use headphones and keep the volume low.  Please limit conversations in open study areas and if you want to work in a group, please use a study room.  When using group study rooms please be respectful of your neighbors and keep discussions under control, the walls are not soundproof.

Free Coffee During Finals!

The Law Library staff invites law students to stop by the Circulation Desk weekday mornings during finals for a cup of coffee.  You supply the spill-proof cup and we will supply the coffee.

Weekdays, Monday – Friday, starting April 23rd and ending May 4th.

Good luck on finals!
