KEYWORDS: Law Library Weekly Newsletter

It’s the most wonderful time of the week – the time when information and entertainment collide to create the wickedly funny weekly newsletter you’ve come to love. Sit back, put your feet up (unless you’re in the library, because rude), and get ready for the latest law library tips. Welcome back to Keywords.

To Mask, or Not to Mask

For the first time in this newsletter’s thousand years long history (give or take a few years), that is the question! Per the Provost’s message from last Friday, masks are no longer required in library spaces. But, you can also keep it on if that’s what you prefer. However you choose to mask, just remember to rock onwards and upwards. And to keep your feet off the furniture.

To Study, or Not to Study

Who are we kidding – the answer is always to study. This is law school. But, you don’t have to study alone. From Nutshells, to Emmanuel Law Outlines, to CALI’s 300+ interactive lessons, there’s an online study aid for any law school topic you can think of. And even topics you haven’t even thought of yet.

In Search of Books

Of course, one knows that one of the many uses of a library is to find books. But were you aware that one can also request books from outside of the law library with Borrow Direct and Interlibrary Loan? The more one reads (this newsletter), the more one knows.

Who Tells HERstory

It’s Women’s History Month, so the next time you’re walking down the hallway outside of the Dean of Students and Career Services offices, stop and peruse the 19th Amendment Exhibit banners. You can also check out some new and noteworthy books by female authors, or write a letter to the woman that inspires you.


We will be back next week with a new edition of Keywords. In the meantime, feel comfortable in your masking choice, expand your borrowing horizons, and learn more about our print and online study aids by emailing
