New Policies and Procedures

Computer Lab Access Codes – codes are pre-assigned ONLY to new LAW students (1Ls, transfers, foreign exchange students, LLMs). Returning students will be assigned a code at their request. Visitors will be assigned a code at their request, and visitor codes are not valid for a semester (instead of a month). Everyone must complete an Access Code Agreement. Please see the instructions posted by the lab code boxes and binders.

After Hours Study Hall - the law school has arranged with campus police to provide an after-hours study hall to accommodate those students who wish to remain in the building after the law library has closed. The study hall will be confined to rooms 120/121 on the ground level. After the doors to the building have been locked at 11:00pm, students who are already in the building will be allowed to use the study hall until 2:00am. They must be in the building by 11:00pm, the police will not let them into the building after the doors have been locked. This service will be available 7 days a week. As a change from last year, no passes or pre-registration are needed. Instead, students need only show their current GMU ID. Persons without a current GMU ID will be asked to leave.

We will send out an e-mail to all students reminding them of study hall availability.

Welcome Back!

We've missed you over the summer. You will notice some changes upon your arrival. First and foremost is the addition of Michael Queen as our new daytime Circulation Manager.

Second is the creation of this blog. This will be the primary mechanism by which Maya, Michael, and I will communicate with you, so please check in often and share your thoughts with us.

As we kick off the new school year, I want to thank each of you for your hard work and dedication. Your work at the circulation desk is essential to the smooth operation of the library and we all appreciate your efforts.
