We in the Robert S. Marx Law Library welcome our entering 1L, transfer, and LL.M. students and welcome back the college’s returning students. In the past, students have often thought primarily of the library as a place: a place to study, a place to find materials, a place to meet colleagues and friends. While our Robert S. Marx Law Library occupies a particular space in the law school building, I encourage you to think of the law library as a confluence of resources and people whose goal is to help you succeed! Our expert staff members, some of whom you have already met, select a broad range of legal information resources that will help you develop your professional expertise. Our reference and research librarians will show you how to take the best advantage of our resources, and will counsel you on making the most of your time with us. We are accessible and ready to help you, and I look forward to personally meeting you very soon.
