KEYWORDS: Law Library Weekly Newsletter

Welcome back from Fall Break! We hope you all have found some time to rest this semester, although some of you still looked like you were working hard in the law library and while we are glad you like to spend so much time here… please don’t forget to rest and do other things that bring you joy.

For example, perhaps libraries bring you so much joy that you want to spend even more time exploring all the books, nooks, and crannies they have to offer! We will be highlighting other libraries both on and off campus in every newsletter that you may want to study in, read romance novels in, get resources from, make TikTok videos in, listen to music in, and more! But first…

Law Library News

Upcoming Workshop – Emanuels and Gilberts and E&Es, Oh My! Navigating the World of Study Aids on Wednesday, October 25th from 12:15-1pm in 387 MTH. In this workshop we’ll not only demonstrate how to access the various electronic study aids made available through the library but also provide guidance on what some of the major titles provide. Ultimately it’s up to you to decide which study aids will best meet your needs, but this program will help give you more context when making those decisions. Bring your laptop to follow along with the demonstration, but also spend a few minutes reviewing print copies of the various titles afterwards!

We have a self-checkout kiosk for those of you perusing the stacks for interesting books when our circulation desk is closed and you desperately want to bring a book home. The self-checkout kiosk is located next to the printer in the library area between the Reading Room and the Atrium. Check it out! And check out a book!

Also, we’ve noticed that many of you love the law library so much that you don’t seem to want to leave, even when there is a fire alarm blaring. Your enthusiasm for the law library is totally appreciated, but for safety reasons, we really would like for you to exit the building during emergency alarms. But of course, come back when the coast is clear!

Law Library Resource Highlight:

Are you writing an article or note for a class or for law review? Don’t forget that you can always reach out to for help with research, and that good research tends to go deeper than Google… For ideas on finding sources outside of Google, try searching through our catalog to find books, articles, and more! Here is a guide on searching for books and articles.

Local Library Highlight

Whilst searching the catalog for interesting books on your paper topic, you may have noticed that a lot of books you’re interested in might be located at Olin library. Olin is about a 5 minute walk through Ho Plaza. You can also check out some of their upcoming events including free meditation sessions and book talks with authors such as Tamika Nunley and her new book The Demands of Justice: Enslaved Women, Capital Crime, and Clemency in Early Virginia (University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, 2023).
