Important Library Update

Posted on April 1, 2011 by


Why is this person jumping for joy?  Because they just found out that starting Monday, April 4th,  the Law Library will circulate all books located in the stacks to students.  What does this mean?

Remember when you needed the looseleaf service Collier on Bankruptcy last semester for your research paper you were writing at home?  How about when you wanted a few “law looking” books to go on your coffee table for the weekend to impress your parents or significant other who was coming into town?  Both times you couldn’t check them out because they were “non-circulating” items.  Not anymore my friend.  Now any book located in the general stacks can be checked out by students.

Before you get too excited, there is a small disclaimer.  This does not include books and other materials on reserves or located in the reference collection.  Only materials located in the general stacks are now circulating.  So for those of you who got excited about the possibility of taking Property: Examples and Explanations on your next two day road trip, I am sorry to say that is still not possible (unless you check-out an older edition located on the back shelves of the study aids collection).  But, if you are looking to take a form book or legal encyclopedia to the Braves game (blasphemy I know), then you are in luck.

If you are unsure about what you can check out, feel free to consult with someone working at the Circulation Desk.
