Outside construction update – main doors

The waterproofing work going on outside at the front of the library has a schedule change.  Rather than partially blocking off entrance doors for weeks at a time, all of the work at the main entrance will be done during the upcoming few days:

  • Friday, Sep. 22: the doorway on the east side (closest to New Jersey Ave) of the main entrance will be blocked for the day.  Other entrances will be available;
  • Saturday, Sep. 23:  the doorway in the middle of the main entrance will be blocked for the day.  Other entrances will be available;
  • Monday, Sep. 25: the doorway on the west side (closest to 2nd Street) of the main entrance will be blocked for the day.  Other entrances will be available.

Please also be aware that the trees from the planter on the east patio in front of the library will be removed Sat. morning, Sept. 23 – there may be some chain saw noise from about 8:00 a.m. for an hour or so

Do you have children?

The library maintains a small collection of children’s books which can be found in the Loewinger Lounge on the left hand side of the Reading Room. We have books for preschoolers and some primary grade books, as well. Feel free to take a book home to your child or if you bring them on campus, feel free to share a book with them in the Loewinger Lounge.

                 

Law Library Response to 2017 Student Survey

Each spring, the Law Library conducts a survey of our students.  In 2017, 276 students responded to our survey, and we published summary charts of the responses back in April. Now we’re publishing a survey response, to show examples of changes to library facilities, content and services guided by the useful student input.

KIC Scanner & Research Conslutation

We have published the 2017 Law Library Survey Response, where you can see highlights of new hydration stations, new Xerox printers which may also be used for copying, scanning and faxing, the installation of white sound machines in group study rooms, and a new research guide on the history of civil rights in the United States.

We appreciate student input. Throughout the year, you are encouraged to send comments and suggestions through our suggestion page, and please keep an eye out for our next annual survey in

Check out some portable power

The library has available for circulation several portable power packs.  If you will be sitting someplace without power and you need to charge your laptop, pad, or phone, one of these chargers will allow you to run or charge your device.  

Please see the staff at the Circulation Desk for this and other “cool stuff” – including phone and laptop charging cords – which you can check out for your use.
