Hello. This is Keywords, the only weekly law library newsletter as newsworthy as the news…that there’s free food somewhere in the Commons because hello, this is law school. Read on for the latest news.
Lost and Found
Have you ever found yourself in the library searching for inspiration…and your cell phone? Ever sat down in a carrel and felt like you were missing something…other than your sanity? Do you ever look around the Reading Room and ask yourself, “Where did it go?”…with “it” being the time and your charger? Come to the circ desk and see if any of your missing items are in our lost and found. We might even be able to help you reclaim your time along with a bit of inspiration and sanity if that’s what you need.
Stand Under Our Umbrellas
Raindrops keep falling on your head? First, check to make sure that those aren’t the sad, sad tears of a clown or a fellow classmate. Next time you feel any celestial precipitation on your face, come to the circ desk and ask for an umbrella-ella-ella-ay-ay-ay. Or a tissue, if that’s what you really need.
Reserve a Study Room
Some people like to treat themselves to massages, mimosas, and fine leather goods. But you are not “some people”. You are a law student. And what do law students treat themselves to? The Reading Room, reference help, and reserved study rooms. So, the next time you need a bit of law school pampering, treat yo self to a reserved study space. Hint: you can reserve a study room up to 1 week in advance of when you’ll need it.
Banned Books Week
It is a truth universally acknowledged that reading is fundamental. But, did you know that there are constant attempts in the US to curtail people’s rights to certain books? To learn more about the work that librarians and the national book community are doing to protect the right to read, keep your eye on the Reading Room and this newsletter next week during Banned Books Week.
We will be back next week with a new edition of Keywords. In the meantime, remember that life is too short to keep questions to yourself. When in doubt, ask a librarian.
