KEYWORDS: Law Library Weekly Newsletter

Hello! This is Keywords, the only weekly law library newsletter that lets you know what’s new in the law library. By now, you should be an expert on all things law lib: finding course materials, remembering to keep your ID on you, and making your way to the squash courts without getting lost…right? It’s ok. We got you. Read on for the latest law library news.

Free Scanning! No Scamming!

Yes, you read that right. If you want to make a digital copy of a chapter or other copyright-acceptable portion of a book, you can scan it for free (even after adjusting for inflation) using the Reading Room scanner located in the alcove next to the Reading Room reference appointment desk. You can also place a ScanIt request via the library catalog; we’ll scan your materials and deliver them to you via email or Box in about two business days. This way you can reclaim your time and use it on what matters most – sleeping reading in the law library.

Work With Us

Does legal research make your heart flutter? Do you like taking long walks down the center aisle of the Reading Room? Do you look forward to spending your evenings in the most beautiful place in the world (and by world we mean Myron Taylor)? Then you’re in luck! The Law Library is looking for two students – 2Ls, 3Ls, or anyone with equivalent legal research and lawyering experience – to work as evening library assistants. For more information, contact Cynthia Lange at  

A Break From Labor

ICYMI, this coming Monday, September 5, is the first holiday of the semester – Labor Day. Don’t worry, we won’t separate you from your favorite studying spot. It’s too early in the school year to break your souls. While the circulation and reference desks will be closed, you are more than welcome to swipe in with your ID card and spend the day doing what you do best: playing games studying in the law library. But don’t go telling everybody. The Law Library is reserved for law students outside normal operating hours.


We will be back next week with a new edition of Keywords. In the meantime, remember there’s no place like home, but the Law Library comes pretty darn close.
