Carol Watson, Director of the Law Library
to the Alexander Campbell King Law Library if you are new to the Law School
community. And, welcome back to the returning 2Ls and 3Ls. I hope everyone
had an enjoyable summer break. This is the time of year the Law Library staff
looks forward to seeing familiar faces and meeting new students.
Although this year I will be celebrating my 25th reunion with my fellow graduates
from the UGA School of Law, I still remember the overwhelming amount of new
information that 1Ls have to absorb and that nervous feeling in the pit of
my stomach. You might find it hard to believe right now, but in a few weeks,
you'll be well-settled and will feel like an old pro at the Law School.
I hope you will make the Law Library the heart of your intellectual life
during the upcoming academic year. We offer legal research instruction, an
experienced and helpful staff, and an extensive collection of legal resources.
Whether you are visiting us digitally or in person, we are here to help you
Best wishes for a happy and productive academic year!
|Meet Rachel Evans: Web Coordinator
past summer the Law Library teamed up with the Law School to bring in Rachel
Evans to serve as the first web coordinator for the school's web site, a part-time
position. In addition to her editing skills, Rachel holds degrees in both
art and music from LaGrange College. We are highly fortunate to bring to
our site her experience with photography, video production and graphic
design. Library offices provide her workspace, a good creative comfort zone
since she also worked in the LaGrange Library. On some level it is just what
she had envisioned for herself as a recently minted MLS (Master of Library
Science, Florida State University).
Rachel is already blazing a path on Athens music scene. Her recent double
LP, Motion Sickness of Time Travel, has been recognized as one of the ten best of 2012 by Flagpole Magazine.
|Lunch-n-Learn: Law School Success
|Student Services Librarian Maureen Cahill will provide quick tips on doing well in Law School without changing your personality.
We'll provide the pizza - you bring a beverage!
|Law Library Circulation: More Than Just Books!
|Be sure to take advantage of the wide range of useful (and fun) items available at the circulation desk.
Out on the front counter you’ll find most of the office supplies you might
need: staplers, white out, paper clips, tape. Often, we have pens and
highlighters. This is also where to pick up earplugs.
Find a movie in our DVD collection, and want to watch it right away? You
don’t need a ten pound lap top with a disc player. You can check out a portable
DVD player right at the circ desk when you pick up your movie.
We also have bookstands, flashdrives, and often on a rainy day we can offer an umbrella.

of the Month
month's Law Dawg is Loki, who shares a home with Foreign & International Law Librarian Anne Burnett's family.
Loki is a Husky-Shepherd mix who was rescued by Law Library Director Carol Watson
in Five Points during Law School Finals last semester. His new family enjoys his joyful
and affectionate personality. He loves to run, chase critters, and
sleep on top of his humans.

your cats, birds, fish, horses, and more are all Law Dawgs!
