two buildings of the Law Library have never had coordinated fire and
emergency alarms. In fact, folks in the Annex simply cannot hear alarms
that do sound. We requested a coordinated alarm system several years
ago, and finally the system installation is scheduled.
Installation began Tuesday, January 8 and will continue for the better
part of three weeks. Most of the noisy work will be done back in the
offices rather than out in the reading room but there will no

do our best to communicate to the workers that anything they can do to
minimize the noise will be greatly appreciated.

need assistance with your Lexis and Westlaw accounts, stop by the
Reference Desk (our hours are posted here).
