This Week in the Law Library ….

What have we been up to in the Law Library? All kinds of things! The Law Library has never been just about physical space and books which is a good thing during a pandemic with everyone working remotely and practicing social distancing. We’ve been adding new online resources and improving access to others. We’re helping students and faculty every day with teaching, learning, and research. You might not be seeing our faces but we’re here working hard for you!

Research Instruction

We’re still teaching and you’re still learning! Although links to the legal research videos are posted on your TWEN or Canvas course, you can always access them from our Law Library Research Guides & Tutorials page too. This means you can access them for a refresher 24/7 even when you’re done with classes and working. Throughout April we’ll be teaching Federal Law, Administrative Law, Low Cost and Free Legal Resources, and Cost Effective Research.

Remote Research Help

We’re still answering your questions! Just email your favorite librarians.

Need help researching for a class or individual research project? Remember that we have lots of Law Library guides and videos to help! You can access all of our video tutorials and guides on the Law Library Research Guides & Tutorials page. Take a look at some of these specific guides:
