The Law Library welcomes
its newest staff member, Douglas Bell. A major responsibility for
Douglas will be staffing the Circulation Desk during its new expanded
hours. He'll be holding down the fort until 2 a.m. every Sunday through
Thursday to help law students squeeze in even more studying!
A second important task he shoulders is keeping the physical collection
in good shape by shifting tight areas, and other projects to enhance
the comfortable use of our bookstacks.
Douglas comes to the Law Library with a record of distinguished
performance at the Main Library. After serving in many capacities, he
was named one of its "Unsung Heroes" due to his work beyond the call of
duty. Earlier he taught English in both Korea and Hungary.
Needless to say, we feel fortunate to have found such an excellent co-worker eager to accept such an odd schedule!

Law Library User Survey – Last Chance to Weigh In
The Law Library User Survey closes Friday, February 9, at midnight.
Many of your classmates have given us a slew of great suggestions
and insightful critiques of library services and facilities. Add your
voice to the chorus. The library’s survey team can advocate for
difficult or expensive changes much more successfully if many students
agree that specific changes are needed.
The librarians and staff at the law library are committed to taking
action in response to the comments we receive through this survey. We
already have requested and secured funding to replace the chairs in the
balcony carrels, and we are focused on finding solutions to several
more involved problems described in survey responses.
Don’t let your classmates' opinions tip the scales; weigh in.
The Law Library is pleased to announce that we now provide access to Vlex, a great new resource for Spanish legal materials.
The over 2 million documents in Vlex include statutes and regulatory
law, case law from all Spanish courts, full-text law reviews and books,
more than 20,000 legal forms, and the most recognized and authoritative
Spanish newspapers and magazines. These materials are all in their
original Spanish language. Vlex also provides access to the official
Spanish version of European Union documents.
Vlex is updated daily and allows for keyword searching and a clipping
service to provide you with the most up-to-date research in Spanish
