Welcome back to the spring semester! We hope your winter break was enjoyable. You may notice some small changes as you research this semester.
The library Reference Desk hours have changed slightly. Our new hours are:
Monday – Thursday: 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Friday: 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Don’t forget we are also available for chat reference and by phone during these hours as well.
You may also notice that both Westlaw and LexisNexis look a little different this semester. LexisNexis now features a “cleaner, more modern look” (to quote one of their emails about the change); although some tabs and databases have moved, you’ll find the site functions quite similarly to the way it did last semester.
Westlaw has also released its much-discussed WestlawNext client to law students. You can now access both WestlawNext and “Westlaw classic” when you login.
If you have any questions or comments about these new changes, feel free to ask one of the reference librarians. You can also contact LexisNexis or Westlaw directly.
