Welcome Back!

Well, it's that time of year! Welcome back to those of you who are returning and welcome to those of you who are just joining us. You are the public face of the law library, and we are delighted to have you on board! For those of you who do not know me, I am Larry Reeves, the associate director of the law library. There have been a few organizational changes among the library staff over the summer. Christine is now the instructional services librarian, and I will have responsibililty for managing public services, which includes circulation. Mike and Maya will continue as your direct supervisors, but please feel free to come to me with any questions or concerns you may have. I will also be responsible for approving your time sheets. I will try to stop by and introduce myself for those of you I haven't met, but you should also feel free to stop by my office on the second floor and introduce yourself. I wish you all a happy and successful school year!

BarBri Students

Non-GMU BarBri (Bar review) students must present their BarBri ID to use the law library. They do not have to sign the guestbook.

BarBri has been given a special code so that the students can use the wireless network. Questions about accessing the network should be directed to the Law School's Computing Services unit in room 362 of the law library. If you have any questions, please see Christine, Maya, or Mike. Thank you.

Amnesty for Library Fines

In honor of National Library Week (April 13-17), we will forgive fines of up to $10, provided that the books/materials have been returned. If a fine appears on a patron record when they are checking out materials, please let them know. Graduating students will not receive their diplomas until they've paid all fines. Please contact Mike, Maya, or Christine if you have questions.

Survey Says . . .

Beginning on Monday, March 16, the library will conduct a survey of all patrons. We are trying to learn which sources are used most often, so we will ask people what materials they use and we will keep track of books that are off the shelf. This information will be useful as we make decisions about what to add to and subtract from our collection. The survey will run for two weeks.

Thanks for your help as we try to determine how best to serve the students, faculty, and public patrons that visit the library.

Winter Weather

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.

Scholarly Writing Papers

There is a collection box behind the circulation desk for these with my name on it. Students will drop off their papers here. Please do not put the box on the counter, but instead keep it behind the desk. Thanks!
