LRWA Exercises

First year students will be turning in their homework for the secondary source classes at the Circulation Desk. There is a box on the shelves behind the desk for this purpose. I will pick them up. Thanks!

Research Classes Begin Next Week

Next week, Rae Best and I will be teaching the first year students how to use secondary sources. The students will use AmJur, CJS, ALR, & the Restatements to answer several questions. These collections will get a lot of use over the next two weeks, so please shelf read these areas during your shift, and ensure that everything is shelved properly. Thanks!

Time for a little levity

It looks as if the a/c & power issues have been resolved. Thanks for your patience & help during this weird week.

And now, something that never fails to make me smile, no matter what kind of a day I'm having (provided I can get my PC to work!):

Interlibrary Loan Options

There are 3 possibilities for borrowing materials not owned by the GMU Law Library. 1) First check our catalog to determine if another GMU library owns the item. If so, use the Intercampus Lending online forms to request the item. 2) Second, check the WRLC catalog, Aladin. The Washington Research Library Consortium is comprised of DC-area university libraries and requests are made directly through Aladin. 3) Finally, if the requested item is not available through GMU or WRLC, submit a request for Interlibrary Loan to the Reference Desk. Our ILL specialist will locate the materials and contact you.

The forms, along with full details on these options are posted on the law library web page at Questions? Contact one of the reference librarians: Christine, Iva, or Paul.

Assistive Technology

Equipment to assist patrons with disabilities is available at the Arlington Campus Library (in the original building). Here is a link to the equipment available:

Law library patrons may check out our materials (even if they normally do not circulate) and take them over to the Arlington library for use. Public patrons must leave a current photo ID at the law library circulation desk while using these materials.

As always, please let me, Maya, or Mike know if you have questions.


Starting today, CDs with the complete CALI lessons will be available to first year law students. There will be a list of all 1L students; please check off their names when you give them a CD.

In a few weeks, the remaining CDs will be available to all other law students.
