United States Supreme Court giclée print

New Art in the Law Library
Alexander Campbell King Law Library is the proud recipient of a
spectacular gift from an anonymous alumnus/a. It is a fine art
print of a painting of the United States Supreme Court building by
noted artist James H. Cromartie. A giclée print is created when
original painting is scanned into a computer and reproduced by spraying
special archival inks onto canvas producing an original painting-like
Better still, come see the real thing. It is hanging over the antique
bookcase just inside the Annex door from the bridge. An unexpected gift
is the best kind, and when it comes to us with the message that this
alum loves the law library, we are touched and humbled. We thank the
anonymous donor with all our hearts for this extraordinary addition to
our permanent collection!
Current and Superseded State Codes
As a research library, the Law Library retains superseded versions of
several types of materials, including the official codes for the fifty
states and District of Columbia.
To clearly distinguish the codes currently in force from those that are
superseded, our staff has affixed bright yellow C stickers to the
the most current texts of the codes. The most current codes are also
the first items under a state's name on the shelves in the Law Library
Older codes also are shelved in the Annex. They are stamped
"superseded" in red ink on the top of the book and do not have C
stickers on their spines.
When you search for the codes in GAVEL, a quick shorthand is to do a
title search for "Current code of ______" (fill in state name). All the
codes now have this handy additional title added to the record.
