KEYWORDS: Law Library Weekly Newsletter

Hey there. It’s Thursday, so you know what time it is. Read on for the latest law library tips from Keywords, your friendly neighborhood weekly law library newsletter.

You Can Sit With Us

With great power, and access to great study spots, comes great responsibility. Part of that responsibility is remembering to keep your Cornell ID, with the Law Library sticker, on you when you are in the Law Library. This small card not only grants you 24/7 access to the Law Library, but also distinguishes you from those non-law folks trying to sneak in after hours. (I mean, can you blame them? They can’t imagine a more beautiful thing than studying in the Law Library.)

Law Library Tip #394: Don’t have a Law Library sticker on your Cornell ID? Stop by the circ desk and ask for one.

Where to Sit

Are you a law student? Do you like to study in the Law Library? Is your favorite Law Library spot on the Ground Floor? Well, we could tell you about it, but you’ve probably already noticed that the Ground Floor library area is closed for construction. No need to fret. Just select a new study spot from either the basement level of the Law Library, the first floor of the Law Library, the second floor of the Law Library, or the third floor of the Law Library.

Don’t Lose Your Seat

Have you ever found yourself in your favorite Law Library spot and realized that it’s been 84 years since you last moved?  In the sage words of Corn Kid, remember that a break can restore your energy. So, take a break for goodness’ sake and remember to carry your ID and other valuables with you.

Banned Books Week

Next time you are in the Reading Room reveling in the unfettered access your Cornell Law Library sticker grants you, don’t forget to peruse the Banned Books display across from the circ desk and learn more about the fight to protect the freedom to read.  

We will be back next week with a new edition of Keywords. In the meantime, when there’s negative in the world, remember to take a corn rest break. And keep your Cornell ID on you.
