Although these Georgia State fans may look like they are cheering for the football team, they are really overcome with joy because they know that National Library Week starts on April 10th.

National Library Week is an annual celebration of the contributions of our nation’s libraries and librarians.  This year, National Library Week is April 10-16, 2011.

“What if I am not a librarian?  Can I still participate?”  Of course you can.  Everyone can celebrate the awesomeness that is library week.  In honor of this occasion, the College of Law Library has several events and activities planned during this time for students.

The Law Library will be doing two Library Abridged table sessions on Monday, April 11th from 2:30 p.m. – 3:15 p.m. and Tuesday, April 12th from 5:00 p.m. – 5: 45 p.m.   The topic will be “Apps for Lawyers and Law Students.”  As always, the table will be located in the first floor lobby by the front entrance to the law school and there will be free coffee and cookies.  Chances are if you drop by you may even get to put your hands on, but not keep, an iPad.

The Law Library will also have a Law Library Trivia Contest.  Those students who answer the most questions correct will be entered into a drawing for a $50 Target gift card.  You may ask yourself, “Can I ask a reference librarian what the answer is to one of the questions?”  Simply put, no.  However, you can ask one of the reference librarians how you would find the answer.  Have no fear, none of these questions will require you to crack open a reporter, code, or treatise.  The deadline will be Sunday, April 17th at 11:59 p.m.  You can access the trivia contest via the following link:

In addition to these activities, the Law Library would like students to take the time to fill out the annual College of Law Library Survey.  Don’t worry, this is not one of those long surveys that you will eventually resort to filling out “C” or “Agree” all the way through.  The survey is short, multiple choice, and will  give students the chance to voice their comments and concerns about the Law Library’s services and resources.  The deadline to complete the survey is Friday, April 29th at 5:00 p.m. You can access the survey via the following link:
