Podium Keys

Inside the black key box, at the circulation desk, are two podium keys. Keys fit all podium drawers in the 1st and 2nd floor classrooms. Both keys are identical. They are attached to identical silver Mason keyrings and barcoded.

Podium keys can only be checked out to faculty and staff. If a student picks up a key for a professor, please check out the key to the professor. Thank you.

PAST Program

PAST is a summer program here at the law school. These students are not regular enrollees and will not have the usual IDs. They DO have access to the computer labs.

Please verify their names on the enrollee list and give them a visitor code.

Wednesday, June 11, 2008


Questions about policies and procedures should be directed to one of the circulation supervisors - Mike, Maya, or me. With Maya off for the next few weeks, please call me or Mike at home if necessary. I would much rather that you call me with questions than hear about a problem after the fact, so please do not hesitate. Thank you!

Swipe Cards & Access

Just a reminder: student workers may use their swipe cards only when they are working. Student workers must use the main doors at all other times.

In addition, after-hours access is not permitted for student workers. When responsible for closing the library, you should be out of the library no more than 15 minutes after the closing time.

As always, if you have questions or comments about library policies, please see me, Maya, or Mike.

Daylight Saving Time begins this weekend at 2:00 am Sunday, March 9. Please don't forget to turn your clocks forward (especially if you are working on Sunday!)

Also, please fill in your time sheet via Patriot Web before you leave for spring break. HR no longer accepts paper time sheets so if you don't use Patriot Web, I can't pay you.

Have a safe but fun spring break! I hope you get to take some time off and relax.

Inclement Weather Policy

Just a reminder about the law school's policy on inclement weather.

Important note: The law school and the rest of the university do not always respond to a weather event in the same way. As a result, you should rely on communication from the law school to learn the operating status of the law school and the law library. Do not rely on public announcements made by the media or by the university because those announcements might not apply to the law school.

The law school's official policy on inclement weather appears below. If you are scheduled to work and the library is open, you are expected to arrive on time. Please call me, Maya, or Mike to let us know whether you will be able to make it here for your shift. Please be sure you have our home and cell phone numbers with you.

In the event of inclement weather, we will communicate information about the operating status of the law school and the law library in three ways:
E-mail notice via the law school listservs
Notice on the law school web site
Recording on the law school main telephone number (703-993-8000).

For a weather event that develops overnight, we will try to make a decision and have it communicated before 7:30 a.m. the next morning.
